We’re just two months into 2020 and Billie Eilish already seems to be owning it. After sweeping the Grammys and releasing the theme song for the new James Bond movie, she has another milestone to be proud of. Last night, Feb. 19, she took home the Brit Award for International Female Solo Artist.
During her acceptance speech, she opened up about how she’s been feeling. “I also want to just say something that I was thinking like two seconds ago,” Eilish shared. “I felt very hated recently and when I was on the stage and I saw you guys all smiling at me, it genuinely made me want to cry and I want to cry right now so thank you.” According to NY Post, in an interview Eilish said that the internet trolls were starting to get to her. “I stopped reading comments fully. It was ruining my life.”
This is wouldn’t be the first time someone has talked about how toxic people can get on social media. And yet, trolls still think it’s okay to spread hate online, and this doesn’t just affect celebrities. Just a reminder to everyone, it doesn’t cost anything to be a decent human being so keep that in mind today.
