An American singer stopped her stage and publicly scolded fans who were using their phones during the show.

On July 16th (local time), Miranda Lambert stopped her performance in Las Vegas, USA, to reprimand a group of fans.

In particular, the singer called out fans who use phones during concert, even halting her performance. Footage of this incident quickly spread online through a video captured by the fan, leading to controversy over the singer’s attitude.

To specify, while Miranda Lambert was singing a few lines of her song “Tin Man” during her concert, the singer noticed a group of concert attendees. She apologized to the pianist, saying, “I’m going to stop for a moment, sorry,” and expressed her displeasure by stating, “These girls are worried about their selfie and not listening to the song, it’s pissing me off a little bit. Sorry, I don’t like it at all. We’re here to hear some country music tonight. I’m singing some country damn music.”

Some fans, angered by Lambert’s reaction, protested her scolding and left the concert. In the circulated video, a woman can be heard saying, “Let’s go, this is not how you treat fans,” as she gets up from her seat and speaks to her companions.

Several TikTok users also criticized Lambert’s rude behavior. For instance, one pointed out, “Miranda hardly interacted with the Las Vegas audience during the concert,” adding, “Fans should be able to enjoy (the show) as they please because they paid money.”

Meanwhile, other netizens made jokes by mentioning Lambert’s ex-husband Blake Shelton, whom she divorced in 2015. “It’s no wonder Blake left her”, one suggested, whilst another said, “They might have taken selfies or videos to capture the moment, she (Miranda Lambert) seems to have crossed the line”.

However, other social media users supported Lambert. One fan argued, “Lambert can be photographed anytime when she’s singing more lively and energetic songs, but when she sings sacred ballads, people should just shut up and listen.”

Meanwhile, incidents of artists halting their performances due to problems with fans have been occurring consecutively. Bebe Rexha and Ava Maxwere injured by objects thrown by fans, while Kelsea Ballerini briefly stopped a show after a fan threw a bracelet onto the stage.
