Earlier this year, Best Coast leader Bethany Cosentino was one of the musicians who publicly called out prominent music publicist Heathcliff Berru for his long history of sexual assault. She’s also written about music-business sexism in Lena Dunham’s Lenny newsletter and called out Chris Brown for a rapey new single. Last night, Cosentino was on The Daily Show — not as a musical guest, but to talk about the Berru story and the larger issues behind it. Cosentino is always an engaging presence, and she was able to make her points with grace and confidence. It was a cool thing to see. Check it out below.
