Last week The Gaslamp Killer was accused of rape, allegations he has flatly denied. However, following the accusations leveled at the producer, his former label Brainfeeder issued a statement cutting all ties with him, via Facebook.

On Saturday (October 14), Brainfeeder chief Flying Lotus alluded to the allegations during a show at Hollywood Forever Cemetery. In a video, he is captured saying "The internet is a fucking liar. Ain't nobody judge and jury but the fucking law, okay? Thank you guys so much for coming, let truth and justice have its day."

In an interview with Hip Hop DX, Flying Lotus has now apologized for those comments, saying:

I wanted to sincerely apologize for my comments at my show. I realize they were insensitive. This is a tough time for all of us, as men and women. I'm having trouble finding my voice in all of this. I am truly heartbroken. My stage has always been a place for what's in my heart until now. I feel as internet wielding people, we have to learn to give each other space to feel, to honor each other's reactions and experiences without bullying. I care about this community and its impact so much.
