Halsey will not stand for heckling at her concerts, and rightfully so.
On February 1st, while performing at a pre-Super Bowl BUDX event in Miami, the 25-year-old pop star stopped her concert to shut down an audience member repeatedly screaming her ex-boyfriend G-Eazy’s name.
“If you say G-Eazy one more f—ing time, I will kick you out this building,” Halsey warned the fan. “I will kick your f—ing ass, test me. I will kick your ass out the f—ing club. You’re not going to disrespect me like that at my own show.”
Unfortunately, Halsey couldn’t spot the culprit in the crowd, so she led the audience in a chant of “f–k that guy.”
After the show, the singer shared an empowering message about standing up for oneself on her Instagram Story.
“Don’t ever let someone make you feel crazy or unhinged cause ur a woman standing up for yourself,” she wrote. “Don’t tolerate disrespect in the name of being ‘nice.’ Love u.”
Halsey and G-Eazy dated in 2017 and had an on-again, off-again relationship before ultimately breaking up the following year.

In recent Halsey news, the singer defended her friends BTS for being snubbed at the Grammy noms.
Ahead of the arrival of the official unveiling of the nominations for the 2020 Grammy Awards, fans of K-pop groups BTS and BLACKPINK gathered in eager anticipation to see if their favourite group would receive official recognition from the Academy. Speculation was high in the air, as both bands have broken down cultural boundaries to see international acclaim.
However, fans of both groups were sorely disappointed on social media when the absence of their groups was revealed by the official Academy nominations.
The Grammys have been accused of racism for multiple years now, and everyone was expecting that this would be the perfect year for them to finally recognise the impact that the South Korean bands have been making across the globe.
As soon as the nominations were officially announced, fans took to social media to discuss the Grammy snub of their faves, and share their thoughts. One individual leading the charge was Halsey, who proudly stuck up for her collaborators BTS.
On Twitter, ‘BTS ARMY’ began to trend in no time, as well as ‘This is BTS’.
