Billie Eilish got rid of Twitter because she got fed up with trolls who couldn’t handle her jokes.
The ‘My Strange Addiction’ singer has opened up about how she was once branded “crazy and toxic” for making a quip on the social media site, and how it’s impossible to say something “horrible” in a tongue-in-cheek way without someone getting “offended” these days.
According to the Tucson.com, she said: “The internet has been saying some dumb s***, not I’m like: ‘I’m keeping this to myself as you don’t deserve my funny a**.’ I make one joke and it’s like, ‘She’s crazy, she’s toxic, a horrible person, rot in hell, you’re problematic’ – damn I made a joke, it’s just funny, calm down. I literally deleted Twitter because of that. I made the funniest joke and people dragged me for like months because of that.”
The ‘Bury Your Friend’ hitmaker is a massive fan of the US sitcom ‘The Office’, but she doesn’t think it would be able to be made today.
She said: “Comedy is just being horrible and it’s hilarious, that’s why ‘The Office’ is so funny, but dude if ‘The Office’ is out today people would be so offended.”
Meanwhile, Billie was recently upgraded to a bigger stage at Glastonbury because she is so popular.
The 17-year-old pop phenomenon – who only released her debut album ‘When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?’ last month – will no longer be performing on the John Peel Stage as planned, as the Worthy Farm festival’s co-organiser Emily Eavis has revealed she is “much too big” and they are currently trying to work out a slot on The Other Stage.
