Caitlyn Stiffler, a woman who posted her accusations on Facebook. Austin Carlile, the former frontman for the band Of Mice & Men
Caitlyn Stiffler Sexually assaulted by Austin Carlile
In the Instagram post, Stiffler said she was one of 15 women to share their stories of being sexually assaulted by Carlile with Alternative Press magazine. She also accused Alternative Press, a music magazine that has described itself as having a “female-led and lgbtq+ editorial staff,” of hiding the story:
To be contacted by you to share my story, in hopes that it wouldn’t keep happening to other girls, felt like a dream. Finally, there was something I could do, considering I was told by law enforcement that there was nothing else I could hope for with no physical evidence. I never thought anyone would believe me or take this seriously, then there was your magazine asking us to share.
Alternative Press has written about Carlile before in stories that covered his life with Marfan syndrome and why he left the band Of Mice & Men.
Stiffler’s husband Jonathan described himself in a Twitter thread as “shocked” and “disgusted” that Alternative Press would give Carlile a platform without addressing any of the allegations that he said women made in “gruesome detail.”
A few years back, realizing the extent of the damage done, I organized a group of women (MANY) who had been raped or sexually assaulted by @austincarlile over the years to be interviewed by @AltPress. I knew him personally, I worked in the scene & I married one of his victims.

I originally shared this in my stories & on Facebook, but I don’t want it to disappear. I want anyone who needs to see this to see it. Dear @altpress, Remember when over 15 girls shared their stories with you about this serial rapist? Because I do. I was one of them. Now you want to not only share HIS nonsense, but you want to put his name next to Jesus? No, just, no. It’s not okay. The alternative community has followed you for YEARS. I followed your stories so closely all through high school and watched my artist friends be featured by your magazine. To be contacted by you to share my story, in hopes that it wouldn’t keep happening to other girls, felt like a dream. Finally there was something I could do, considering I was told by law enforcement that there was nothing else I could hope for with no physical evidence. I never thought anyone would believe me or take this seriously, then there was your magazine asking us to share. He not only raped girls, probably more than anyone even knows about, he was a predator seeking out underage girls by using his position in the music industry to do so. He threatened you with a lawsuit and you backed down. I get it, who would want to be involved in that when you could just… not. That was your choice, a choice none of us had. We can’t just let it go and forget. I for one had hoped that you would at the very least stop featuring him. Guess I was wrong to hope that. He needs CANCELLED. Get him out of these kids’ faces who believe he’s a good person deserving of recognition. #cancelaustincarlile #austincarlile If you feel comfortable, please share this. Girls need to know what he’s capable of doing. He can’t hide from this forever and I can’t stand by anymore wondering if he’s out there doing this to anyone else.
