Halsey Yells At Her Fans Outside BBC Radio 1

February 25, 2016 By Jordan Miller

Halsey is upset fans were blasting her on Twitter for snubbing them on the way inside her appearance.


Halsey calls out her fans for bullying her online in real-time.

Halsey is getting used to the whole fame thing, and clearly doesn’t understand Internet trolling from the anonymous is part of it. It’s almost a rite of passage, and no matter how many campaigns or essays rollout, it will (most likely) always remain a prevalent part of stardom in the digital age.

Immediately following her interview outside the BBC Radio 1 building on Thursday (Feb. 25), the Badlands singer walked outside to address fans’ remarks she snubbed them on the way in.

“I’m getting a lot of really rude messages right now from people saying that I’m ****** up and that I swerved you and I’m being rude and I’m being mean,” she told the crowd of eager fans. “Not for nothing, but I’ve been in press since 8 o’clock in the morning. I have a whole day of interviews to do. I’m still doing them. I would never just walk by you and not meet you. To abuse me like that online is kind of ****** up. I have a lot more interviews to do and I promise I’m going to meet people. But please don’t be mean to me. I have a very busy day too, okay? It really makes me upset. Please don’t be mean to me.”

On the one hand, we applaud Halsey for standing up for herself, but it’s a golf clap. What her tone implies is she dreads interviews, is busier than everyone else and cares a little too much what strangers think of her. If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Bottom line: don’t yell at your fans.
