Published May 28, 2009Adding to the already ridonkulous legacy that follows them, Toronto hardcore fiends Fucked Up can now add "Fox News correspondent" to their impressive list of strange facts. In a recent interview with CBC's Q, Fucked front-man Damian Abraham (aka Pink Eyes) revealed that he will become a permanent commentator on the late night Fox News show Red Eye.
Abraham, who appeared on the show earlier this year, holds a degree in woman's studies and has been asked to be their in-house voice for gender issues. "I pointed out that there'd probably be something problematic in having a white male be an expert on gender issues," he said. "It's one of those things where do you take this ridiculous opportunity as it's presented to you, or do you avoid it and just continue on with your life? That's sort of the internal struggle I'm dealing with. Here I am as an invited guest sitting down at Fox News. It's just so bizarre."
According to the Pitchfork guys, Abraham has confirmed he's taking the gig and will appear on Red Eye between one and three times a month. Perhaps this will open the door for other Fucked Up members to break into show business as well. We'd love to see drummer Jonah Falco as a MuchMusic VJ in his trademark mesh shirt.
