• Billie Eilish speaks out against YouTuber who posted her impersonation videos
  • She said it can be dangerous for them and the video is making her look "bad"
  • The video has been removed and the creator has already apologized

Billie Eilish is undoubtedly one of the shining names in the music industry today and the things that she has achieved at such a young age prove how hard she has worked to reach where she is now. Her popularity has skyrocketed in recent times thanks to her hit songs. But some YouTubers are taking advantage of her popularity, prompting Eilish to call them out publicly.

Eilish, who made history at this year’s Grammys, took to Instagram to speak out against a man who uploaded a clip on the video-sharing platform of turning one of his friends into the “Bad Guy” hitmaker and fooling people.

As soon as Eilish got to know about the video, she posted a snapshot from the video on one of her Instagram stories and urged the people to not do such kind of transformations for it can turn “dangerous” for them. She further stated that such videos make her look “bad.”

“Please stop doing this s--t. It is not safe for you and it is mean to people who don't know any better. You make me look bad,” Eilish wrote.

The video that sees the impersonator doing acrobats has been removed since Eilish lashed out at the creator, Jordan Matter, on social media. Matter responded to all the criticism he faced and apologized to the Grammy award-winning artist. He also noted that he is a huge fan of Eilish and had no intention of “disrespecting” her.

“I have reached out directly to Billie and Maggie and apologized, and I will not post the video without their permission,” Matter wrote.

The “Ocean Eyes” hitmaker also shared some screenshots of all the videos that have been uploaded on YouTube which show how people can transform to Eilish and requested them to stop making such videos.

In related news, the “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” singer will be giving a “special performance” at this year’s Academy Awards. The details about her performance are still under wraps, but fans believe that she might debut the Bond theme song that she has co-written with her brother Finneas for the upcoming movie “No Time To Die.”

Eilish started the new year with a bang by being the first female artist ever to win in all four major categories — Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist and Record of the Year — during the same year. The last time it happened was in 1981.
