While I was looking through some old threads on the Muse subreddit, I claim across a link to a user in r/poppunkers who was talking about the old AOL hotline Matt had. For those who don't know, Matt had this email set up so that fans could send him nudes. The user in r/poppunkers remembers a case where a 16 year old girl send Matt non-nude pictures. Matt (allegedly) responded asking for more. In response, the girl told Matt she was 16. He responded by asking to see her breasts. The user concludes by suggesting that this incident would have been well known as the message board, suggeesting that others would know as well. The user deleted their account about a day after making the post.
Obviously, this is an extremely serious allegation. Asking for nudes of a 16 year old is child pornography under UK law, and if Matt did this, he is not only sleazy but actually evil. Can anybody who used the boards back in the day confirm or deny this, or tell me if Matt had an over-18 rule for nudes? I really hope this isn't true, as I am a huge Muse fan and want to continue supporting them.
