Earlier today I was on twitter and I saw this exchange that really “bothered” me.
Michaël Brun is a young Haitian artist (a Dj to be precise) who released a fire album earlier this year – around summer time. He tweeted this morning that he’s touring in 2020. The tweet read “Bayo Tour 2020 💡”.
Some fans were excited and were giving ideas of cities etc and there was that one reply…
Now, he’s said it already because of the type of person he is and how he was raised, Michaël likes it when everything is clear and there no misunderstandings or issues with the people who comment on his posts and tweets. He really is as positive as it gets.
He genuinely seems like a sweet person so he tried to explain a couple of things to the person.
Whilst I am also a positive and polite person, I got annoyed by that person’s tweet. I really failed to understand what he (Michaël) is supposed to do about the fact that “Haiti is literally on fire (sic)”.
He is a DJ, not a firefighter therefore I couldn’t see what she expected from him.
First of all, I realised that it was not the first time that people had this attitude and behaviour in celebs’ comment section.
I really want to know a couple of things:
– what are THESE people effectively doing to make it okay for them have such expectations of celebs?
– do they have a plan/ idea/ project in which the celebs could invest?
– why are they so entitled? Why do they feel like the celebs OWE THEM a better life or whatever?!!!!
Haiti is going through a major crisis at the moment- potentially the worst to date. I got to notice that a crazy amount of the people talking the loudest are just looking at things from their screens in a house outside of Haiti.
They even have a textbook view of the situation and offer textbook solutions.
Togo back to the Dj- bless him- he started to explain the things he’s been involved in and the programs he’s been running etc. It’s like him justifying the fact that he can still do his job during the crisis.
I really felt for him. Celebs are human beings too
Let’s stop being entitled like this when interacting with them… they didn’t really owe anyone anything!!
