"Claire sort of got hung out to dry by our camp -- that's not our camp," Drew told MTV News Canada. "Andrew's entitled to his opinions. He plays guitar with us, I love him like a brother, but he was wrong to do that publicly. He knows it. We know it. We've hugged it out with Claire."
Drew said the video concept is "100 percent backed by myself and by [drummer Justin] Peroff, and as we showed the band, some were into it, some weren't, but that's what happens."
So if not everyone was on board (made obvious by Whiteman's reaction to the video as he called it "weak s---" and "f---ing literalist bulls---"), why did Broken Social Scene forge ahead with the gruesome video which features a girl, played by Bijou Phillips, dismembering her lover with an ex.
"We didn't have time to go with our own vision," explained Drew. "And a lot of guys from the band were upset about that."
Here's hoping the next video experience is more harmonious.
