The Taylor Swift fanbase is angered after MÖTLEY CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx accused the singer of whining.
Over the weekend, Nikki tweeted, “Is it just me or does Taylor Swift always seems [sic] likes she’s whining about something new every-time she’s gonna drop an album? #WorIsMeMarketing [sic].” (He likely meant @WoeIsMeMarketing as the hashtag.)
It appears that Sixx is referencing the major controversy surrounding the Ticketmaster debacle, which left millions of Taylor Swift fans spending hours online without being able to purchase tickets to her upcoming 2023 tour.
In a statement, Swift wrote, “It’s truly amazing that 2.4 million people got tickets, but it really p*sses me off that a lot of them feel like they went through several bear attacks to get them.” Ticketmaster later apologized.
If you’re looking for a surefire way to receive some hate, start by criticizing Taylor Swift. It didn’t take long for some of Swift‘s 91.8 million followers to find their way to Sixx‘s account.
“Jeez man, you gonna call her out?,” responded one, explaining the apparent error of Sixx‘s ways. “I mean your band is big and all but the wraith of the #Swifties is not something you want take on. She’s nearly doubled your record sales and she’s 1/3 of your age. Just seems petty on your end.”
“Does Nikki Sixx know that every tongue that rises against Taylor Swift shall fall?”, another fan asked. “It’s written in the holy scriptures of Twitter.”
“Someone go put their grandpa to bed,” another fan added. “But seriously, MÖTLEY CRÜE has made their entire career off of objectifying women, I really don’t wanna hear criticism from Nikki Sixx of all people on Taylor Swift.”
