Summer Walker On Toronto Backlash: “It’s Getting Disrespectful”

Published: Wednesday 27th Nov 2019 by Sam

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.

    In the REAL world, show up for work LATE — you get fired. Wake up honey

    • SMH November 27, 2019

      Exactly. I cannot stand this new generation of lazy ass entitled crybabies who think the world owes them something for just being alive. This h0 needs to sit her stupid ass down somewhere, she’s taking up space for some nameless talented unheard artist out there who’s grinding their ass off just to be noticed without all the bs shenanigans.

      • boomkack123 November 27, 2019

        AMEN!!!

    • Jasmine November 27, 2019

      I disagree with that! Everyone in ‘the real world’ is not a subordinate! I stroll into work whenever I want because i am a boss. Summer is a new artist bit still a boss. When she does performance gigs she is not reporting to anyone and if she is late she is late and the ticket holders will deal. If this was an awards ceremony performance then yes she has to be on time but for a concert no she is her own boss and people that buy tickets have to get the message through their thick heads to stop buying tickets to see her!

        Would you happily wait 3 hours in the freezing cold and get frostbite, for a 1 hour long show?

      • Jasmine November 27, 2019

        Hell no. Sounds like a bunch of crazydesperados who would do that. Either I am let into the venue with heat or im calling AMEX and they will refund my money immediately

  2. Jasmine The Real Princess November 27, 2019

    Stay out of the kitchen if you can’t take the heat then. Oh, and take a bath ffs!

    • Jasmine November 27, 2019

      Shut it Jawanna Man. Im the only Jasmine on here born female. The rest are men who wish they were me!

  3. Perfection is so…mhph 💅🏾 November 27, 2019

    Well…I believe her. But I think it’s a learning lesson for her. Know when YOU’RE supposed to be working. This is YOUR show. YOU’RE the only one who’s going to be blamed. So you should be more apologetic RIGHT NOW, than combative. She missed the mark on this point.

  4. Only facts November 27, 2019

    Summer, girl, YOU’RE getting disrespectful to your fans! How the hell are you planning to make money if you aren’t touring or making another album? Sigh. Just a mess. Mental illness is no joke, and anxiety is real, but she and her team should have NEVER released this album if she was dealing with al of this.

  5. Swirly November 27, 2019

    “Social Anxiety” and whatever else Summer diagnosed herself with doesn’t give reason for unprofessionalism. It’s highly unacceptable. She’s a newbie in the game and needs to move as such. I don’t see any hustle or hunger with her. There are 50000 other girls who sound exactly like her on YouTube & Soundcloud sitting around waiting for their chance to shine. If she keeps fumbling opportunities, she’ll be quickly replaced with one of them. Her music isn’t that great for her to be acting like this.

    How do you become a music artist in this day and age and don’t understand that the reason you exist and are signed to a major is because the label bank rolled you on the assumption you will be successful and create fans who consume your music???? This girl is DELUSIONAL talkin’ about it’s getting disrespectful SMH. Being an artist immediately put you in a position to have your every move criticised and this work NEVER change. If you don’t want the criticism hang it up and go be a librarian. 😑

  7. Drinkmybussyjuice November 27, 2019

    Here’s my thing with this…. cool explain yourself, but HOW IN THE FUCQ do you not know when your own show starts. You mean to tell me you have control to fire ppl but go on stage “when they tell you to”. Its HER tour. How in the FUCQ did u not know it was raining and cold or that your fans where outside. Her name is written all over this tour. She should know every single detail and inner working piece. What time it starts, how many ppl are in attendance, which dancer farted on stage.. EVERYTHING. So that excuse does more harm than good.

  8. SMH November 27, 2019

    No-talents like this girl with a thousand excuses for their lack of a work ethic is the reason why the music industry is in the toilet with no signs of ever getting better.

  9. Tyty November 27, 2019

    Well this is what happens with someone of sub par talent no concept of stardom and what it entails including hard work, live performances etc… these artists are only good in the recording studio with auto tune.

  10. Gworl Bye November 27, 2019

    You know who the real idiots in this situation are? The fans who actually paid money and waited all that time for this fool.

  11. Clarksooon November 27, 2019

    I was rooting for her but not anymore
    She’s so stupid. She lying about her social anxiety. She doesnt have that

    I dont think she want to a be an artists.

    I think she wants to be a socialite or a reality star.

    But watch as yall gonna make her popular cause u guys like making silly people famous.

  12. Dc November 27, 2019

    She’s loca

  13. LOTUS November 27, 2019

    No where in her ‘message’ did she even attempt to take responsibility. Blaming the team and everyone else….just not long ago you were cleaning toilets. Be humble, be grateful, and appreciate the successes you have. Also, you owe an apology to your fans.

  14. Curt November 27, 2019

    Alright, I think it’s time to acknowledge something. Not all jobs are for everyone. If you have “social anxiety” or any other disorder that makes having to be/ perform around many people, then BEING A TOURING SINGER IS NOT FOR YOU. Summer Walker needs to write songs for other artists and sing at church and coffee shops. Fame ain’t her game.

    • Dc November 27, 2019

      Exactly that’s like me going out for football then get on field and say I’m scared of getting tackled she’s ridiculous

  15. Star November 27, 2019

    But y’all keep supporting these non singing no real talent having artist while there are super talented artist like Jasmine Sullivan & Luke James who will sing ANYONE under the table & are very professional & gracious to their fans

    • Gworl Bye November 27, 2019

      ALL. OF. THIS.

  16. XYZ November 27, 2019

    Thats what happens when you make Trash famous. But her fans get what they deserve.

  17. AJ November 27, 2019

    None of her ramble explains why it took her 3 hours to grace the stage. Lauren Hill and Madonna are icons and they get roasted for coming on stage late. Summer barely even started and she thinks she deserves dispensation for being late. I get that being a musician is her chosen career but whether people consume music or not is a choice for them. Just because she makes music doesnt mean its gonna be successful. Heck people go their whole career without ever winning an award.

    At her level and popularity, she should just be grateful that enough people buy tickets to make a show viable.

  18. Dc November 27, 2019

    Can we cancel her ass and make 5000 people crowd as she says turn into 0 unappreciative ass

  19. Black Jasmine, The REAL Princess Jasmine Okurrr. November 27, 2019

    No we as black people get called lazy.

    • Black Jasmine, The REAL Princess Jasmine Okurrr. November 27, 2019

      *No wonder

  20. Lol November 27, 2019

    She has the nerve to get on the internet and complain when SHE was the one who was 3 hours late and made people wait in freezing temps? She didn’t think that was disrespectful?

  21. Neon November 27, 2019

    I don’t get why anybody would pay to see her anyway, her album put me to sleep.

  22. Moti25 November 27, 2019

    Girl go have a seat!! I’m so sick of this lil girl
