Halsey had no time for a Twitter troll who criticized her for not coming to BTS’ defense when they didn’t get any Grammy nominations Wednesday.
“halsey can call out the industry for taylor but not bts … but when i say she was milking they friendship i’m the bad guy,” the troll tweeted, referencing Halsey’s defense of Taylor Swift after she took Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta to task.
(Halsey collaborated on “Boy With Luv” with the K-pop group.)
“I just woke up and the biggest song of my career wasn’t nominated either,” Halsey responded, referencing her tune “Without Me.” “Can u guys not take ur anger out on me for once or.”
She quickly deleted the tweet and reworked her message in response to the criticism she had received.
“my fans 💕 please do not waste your anger or frustration. i see a lot of you are upset. of course im sad too. none of it matters. literally none of it,” she wrote. “you’re here. im here. + everything is gonna stay exactly the same and without me is still a super tight, record breaking song.”
The 25-year-old performer said she was sad to see so many snubbed but appeared to understand that was the nature of award shows, including the Grammys.
“congrats to the nominees. so much great music nominated this year. definitely see a lot of my friends and colleagues missing from the nom lists, but the music speaks! this is how it goes every year right?” she tweeted.
Halsey continued to receive criticism for failing to directly address BTS’ snub, so eventually, she acknowledged it and admitted she was “unsurprised” by it.
“deleting and ignoring all negativity. BTS deserved many nominations. I am however, unsurprised that they weren’t acknowledged,” she wrote. “the US is so far behind on the whole movement. the time will come.”
The 2020 Grammy nominations were announced Wednesday, with Lizzo leading the pack with eight noms. Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X each received six nominations.
