After The Story So Far frontman kicked a girl offstage at a show in Toronto on April 10, she posted a comment on facebook.
Becca Illic, who was in the midst of taking a drunken Snapchat before she felt Parker Cannon kick her in the back, released the following statement:
“I was at the show, got up onstage and tried to take a stupid Snapchat video of me jumping into the crowd. I was drunk and my phone wasn’t working properly to load the app, so I stood up there longer than I had anticipated. As expected at all hardcore shows, Parker was going with the flow and just hyping up the crowd so he kicked me offstage.”
Parker Cannon and The Story So Far have yet to officially comment on the incident. Kerrang! has reached out with a view for Parker to explain the incident. At the time of writing there has been no response.

Notably, it is not the first instance of an event like this at a TSSF show. At a show in Houston, Texas, on June 2, 2015, Parker kicked a fan during a performance of All Wrong.
