Today March 8 2023 Filippa Nässil posted this somewhat cryptic statement on Social media which she may or ma not be referring to her fellow ex band mates
"Over the past year, I've taken a stand for myself and others who have suffered through a toxic relation, whether it is from a friend, relative or a lover. Such behavior is unacceptable and should always be fought, no matter where or with whom it happens.
The last few months and years have been challenging for me personally, who have been at the hands of such mistreatment and abuse.
It was challenging and I did everything within my capacity to address it. Unfortunately, the person involved refused to attend two separate meetings to get to the bottom with this. My efforts to resolve the issue were ignored. I honestly had to resolve this for my own mental health. I let her go after that since she didn’t show any interest in solving the issue. In the end I didn't even like my job.
I even hired an expert to mediate, but communication was non-existent. This experience was mentally draining, and I struggled to overcome it.
I've encountered a lot of nonsense recently in media, and I commend all the strong women who possess integrity, kindness, and empathy towards others.
For those who know me, you're aware of the truth. And those who met us together, you probably know too. No one should be around that kind of energy and I feel happier now. Let's be kind to each other and spread peace and love. I am humble and thankful for what’s given to me. And I'm thankful for everyone who is supporting what’s right. I'm thankful for people who is thinking before judging. Thank you.
Strong woman of the world, today is our day.
Take no bullshit and work hard."
