Summer Walker is over the slander.
The rising star has fallen foul of public favor of late, following lackadaisical performances (which she’s blamed on social anxiety) and most recently due to hitting the stage three hours late in Toronto. As reported, fans were outraged – with some even suffering from frostbite after waiting in the cold.
Now, after receiving receiving quite the lashing online, she’s hitting back.
See what we mean below…
Taking to Instagram Live, the ‘Come Thru’ singer claimed she is being bullied and that the mass critique is “getting disrespectful.”
She went on to detail a litany of issues that were responsible for the Toronto fiasco – all of which, she says, were out of her hands. Check out the video:
For us, the primary issue is communication.
Because, in as much as some of the dramas weren’t her fault, it’s kinda wild to hit out at people for being jarred at having to wait three hours in the cold with no explanation.
Ultimately, whichever way it’s diced or sliced, her name is on the top of the bill – which, for all the perks that’s packaged with, also means she’s subject to whatever critique comes along with it.
To minimize the latter, she and her team would be well advised to get in-front of such situations before they catch fire. Instead, she’s being reactive instead of proactive, while also being somewhat unsympathetic to the the very folk who’ve put her where she is.
Online bullying is a no-no, but so too is the nonchalance that has seemed to define much of Summer’s narrative post the release of her project.
