People have been shiatting on her since she first showed up. I don't get the hate but it's all some people have.

So her fans are mad that she agreed with a Tweet saying they're embarrassing, and they immediately prove that yes, they're embarrassing.

How embarrassing.

Hey cancel culture, what will we find when we strip away your finery?

She should be proud.  It's a sign that you've arrived when people apparently hate you so much.  Elvis, the Beatles, 2 Live Crew....When people are lighting your stuff on fire....Just make sure they're buying licensed products to burn, so you get the royalties

I gave up about two paragraphs in.  A talented singer did something some idiots on the internet find objectionable and media outlets are trying to generate clicks about it.  I pine for the days when idiots had no voice.

2 Live Crew actually deserved to have their records lit on fire.  They were one of the worst rap groups ever.

DJ Magic Mike was the best Miami bass rapper and producer.

Singer with embarrassing fans likes that her fans were called embarrassing. Embarrassing fans do embarrassing things on tiktoc. I'm embarrassed that theses asses aren't smart enough to be embarrassed.

Now, Billie, that hair?  Embarrassing.

I meant when there were gatekeepers in news media and nonsense like Obama's Birth Certificate and WaPo's hard-hitting expose on the problematic white supremacist origins of bird-watching would never have seen the light of day.

There's always been gatekeepers in media, and they always exist for the same reason: to protect the bottom line. No media outlet shut down Joseph McCarthy when they should have, and that got far more out of control than anything we're seeing today.

I'd have to see an internet poll on that first

On one hand, who cares?

On the other hand, super-internet-moron-fans SUCK.  Anyone who ever self-describes as a Stan needs to be put down, or at least be locked up in an asylum.  They're mentally ill.

Fandom in social media is bizarre / generally too much for me to handle with how far people go in their own heads to believe what they perceive is all that exists. A year ago she was being slut-shamed for wearing a bikini. Hey that's not you, you are supposed to wear baggy clothing and hide your body.

This particular article doesn't have it all - the run up to this incident was her supposed queer baiting - Having said she loves girls. OMG she came out!! LGBTQ support +1 yay! - but then is pictured with a boyfriend?! How dare you say things and then do things to change the narrative after you've been claimed.

Supernatural had a similar fate after the ending. Twitter/FB vocal fans believed Castiel and Dean were gay for each other, said fans believed Castiel and Dean would ride off into a gay romance at the series finale. [it didn't happen] Cancelled and the CW was blamed of washing their hands of any supposed LGBTQ connections

I am sure they posted all the stuff online to protest her and not to get likes for themselves.

Listen, I don't like Bobby Eyelash either, but this cancel culture is absurding themselves into irrelevance.  In fact, I say we cancel cancel culture.

Who was then canceled.

Remember when they canceled the Beatles?
No, of course you don't.
You've never hard of The Beatles.
Because The Beatles were cancelled.

Cancel culture is not the danger conservatives claim it to be, but liberals are disingenuous when they say it doesn't exist.

The silver lining is, your children are going to have absolutely vicious senses of humor.

This is why I keep saying there's no such thing as cancel culture.  When Bill Cosby/Harvey Weinstein were dropped it's because they were toxic assholes.  When a bunch of "fans" break things it means absolutely nothing.  Even so it's a nice boogeyman for the right, because It Could Happen To You (if you're a racist and/or rapist).

...Subby, you said 'important' in the headline.

I do not think that word means what you think it means.

A Tweet from the article: nawt billie eilish getting cancelled and fans are throwing their merch away...reminds me of melanie martinez fans in 2017

Uh...Melanie Martinez was accused of rape. Was Billie accused of rape? No? Then it doesn't compare in the slightest.

I'll give you that. I'd pay money to never hear the phrase "Cancel Culture" again -- or weirdos trying to redeem the phrase by calling it "accountability culture."

That said, apparently hundreds of former Jeopardy contestants can demand a guy apologize for holding up three fingers after his third win because some rando on Twitter is offended. Whatever you want to call it -- That crap can die off right now and no one except Twitter randos and G/O Media writers will be affected.

For those who want to understand the nontreversy here you go at a semi-safe link:

https://web.archive.org/web/202106142​3​0402/https://www.newsweek.com/billie-e​ilish-queerbaiting-controversy-explain​ed-1600330

I've never been sold on her music, but I'd hate to be a teenager with a hint of fame these days. No kid deserves this kind of write up.

Newsweek has reached out to Eilish's representatives for comment.

If she responds with a picture of her tongue out or just the usual blank stare she has, I'd probably buy a shirt or vinyl record as a form of congratulations.
 
2021-06-14 7:28:07 PM  
Lemme see if I got the gist of this. Five or six morons decided to dispose of merch they already paid for CANCEL CULTURE!!!

Dramatic tweens. Their lives are literally over.
 
2021-06-14 7:38:42 PM  
Fans are a volatile thing.  They liked her because she had a kind of shallow, rebellious green haired baggy clothes wearing mumbling antipop pop thing. Then she won awards, returned her hair to blond, and showed her boobies.  So now they hate her.

Nothing's worse than a fan who's incapable of understanding it's all an act by the celebrity.
 
2021-06-14 8:48:05 PM  
Her music's creative and enjoyable. Gotta appreciate anyone with their own distinct sound.

That said, this is a thing that exists:

The absolute state of those people.  Just...WOW.  Imagine thinking that anyone aside from your equally brain-dead friends gives a tenth of a shiat that you're destroying your Billie Eilish items.

Cuz yeah, I'm sure that between polishing her multiple Grammy Awards to a glistening shine and having more money than anyone who follows her will ever see or possess in their lifetimes, she's wringing her hands with concern because a bunch of entitled, spoiled, wannabe-edgy halfwits are "canceling" her.

Yeah, farkers, you sure showed her...or something.
