Charlie Puth is in the doghouse with fans. The “One Call Away” singer is being accused of telling a female fan to “die” before blocking her on Twitter.
After a screengrab of Puth’s alleged interaction with the fan began making its rounds, outraged social media users began using the hashtag “#CharliePuthIsOverParty on Wednesday to weigh in on the situation, many commenting on the petty nature of his rumored behavior. Others joked about the many “Twitter parties” that have taken place in the last few weeks citing Kim Kardashian’s takedown of Taylor Swift on behalf of her husband Kanye West, Selena Gomez’s jab at ex-boyfriend Justin Bieber, and two parties declaring both Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato “over.”
Puth, 24, has not weighed in on the fan response to his reported comment at this time.
The incident in question occurred early Wednesday morning. Screenshots show Puth appearing to have messaged the fan, telling her to “die,” at around 3 a.m. EDT. The fan’s screengrab shows no prior messages between the two. It remains unclear whether she tweeted and/or messaged the New Jersey native prior to his controversial comment. The hashtag celebrating his demise began trending shortly thereafter.
Puth’s “party” comes just days after fans took to the social media site to declare Demi Lovato’s career was over after the “Cool For The Summer” singer laughed at insensitive comments about Zika virus on Snapchat Aug. 12. The video in question showed her mother, Dianna Hart, making a comment about “everybody” in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, catching the disease, which has been known to cause birth defects in babies among other symptoms. Lovato can be heard laughing in the background of the video, which has since been deleted. Days after the clip surfaced, Lovato tweeted a sincere apology to fans, writing that it was not her intent to offend anyone and was simply laughing at her mother’s Southern accent. Lovato went on to say that she wasn’t affected by the drama because she’s “so content with life.” In a final tweet she addressed those using the “#DemiLovatoIsOverParty” hashtag, writing that she “ain’t goin nowhere.”
