It’s been a tough year for Jack White on the internet—there was that time people really cared about his guacamole recipe, the miscontruing of his intentions with his “Music Is Sacred” poem, Tidal (in general). On Tuesday, more trouble: a transcript of White’s online chat with fans made its way around the internet and sensationalized reports of Jack White quitting music and only “being in it for the money” surfaced.

White’s label, Third Man Records responded, posting a message on its Facebook page. The letter is reprinted in its entirety below.
