3 Huge Reasons Why You Should Start Being Nice To Celebrities
Every other story in the news recently is of fans throwing things at their favorite artists AS they’re performing! Not because the artist sucks, and not because the artist did anything to them personally. No, they’re throwing crap at them just… because. Come on people, be nice to celebrities.
What’s happened so far
Dua Lipa got a phone to the eye. Harry Styles got something thrown at his eye. And even worse in my opinion, a water bottle to the nuts. Pink got a dead woman’s ashes thrown at her, which is just bizarre. Even Drake got pelted with a phone, shoes, and hats. And in my opinion, the only acceptable item, bras. But this (except for the bras) needs to stop for a number of reasons.
Why you need to be nice to celebrities
- You’re ruining everyone else’s experience. NO ONE’s gonna come up to you and say “That was awesome!! I spent my paycheck on this show and you ruined it. Thanks!!”
- You’re ruining future experiences for people that you don’t know that will be going to shows for artists that you’ve never heard of. Don’t be shocked if artists or venues start requiring people to check their phones in before events if this keeps up.
- Doing this is just stupid and makes you an a**hole.
Ok so now that we’ve established why you shouldn’t be a jerk, let me tell you a story of what being nice could get you.
A Tik Tokker who goes by @eyezcosplay posted a video of him at Beyoncé’s concert in Toronto. “Eyez” saw Jay Z and instead of throwing his phone at Jay’s nuts or spitting at him, he said hello and asked Jay to dap him up. But Jay Z didn’t dap him up. He actually GAVE HIM HIS DRINK! It was champagne, which I’m guessing was something expensive and hard to pronounce. So not only did the dude get Jay Z on video, he got Jay Z giving HIM a personalized souvenir (with his DNA) on video! Would he have have gotten that if he was a jerk to Jay?? I highly doubt it. So please, be nice. That’s it and that’s all. And if that’s something that you can’t bring yourself to do, then just lock yourself in your parents’ basement until you can.
