Steel Panther and guitar accessory provider TC Electronic received some backlash from social justice warriors that were not amused by their signature "Pussy Melter" guitar pedal. A petition was started by a female musician who described it as "sexist" and "offensive", calling for its removal.

Following the outrage, Steel Panther guitarist Satchel announced via his Twitter account that he would be working with TC Electronic to rename the guitar pedal to the "Butthole Burner", which they decided would be less offensive and more politically correct towards potential customers.

Now fans have started a counter-petition for TC Electronic to re-release the "Pussy Melter" guitar effect as is.

According to the petition, the arguement is deeper than just showing support for Satchel and Steel Panther. "Our argument is that it is unfair for a small number of personal objections to have the power to dictate the will of an independent company. We in no way blame TC Electronic for their decision to remove the product for fear of bad press. This petition is an appeal for the company to take a pro-consumer and anti-censorship stance on the issue."
