Some believe the singer was "ungrateful" to fans
Fans of the Australian pop artist Troye Sivan have accused the singer of being ungrateful after he was pictured throwing away flowers gifted by a fan.
In a series of images collected together on Twitter, the singer is at first seen holding the flowers from an eager fan, before putting the same bunch, now slightly wilted, in the bin.
People have been quick to label Sivan “rude”, “ungrateful” and “disrespectful”.
However, Sivan wears different outfits in the two images, leading many to point out that the images were probably taken days apart once the flowers had died.
Some have also suggested that the flowers may have been thrown away as Sivan was entering the airport and couldn’t carry them onboard.
@MaryamStyles16 said: “THIS ISN’T THE FAN WHO GAVE HIM THE FLOWERS, HE THREW THEM CAUSE HE’S NOT ALLOWED TO TAKE EM WITH HIM IN THE AIRPORT. IT’S NOT HIS FAULT!”
@StevenRGlass echoed the statement, adding: “Expecting a celebrity to have to collect every gift given to them makes the fans the assholes. He’s still a human.”
The situation has also made its way into a collection of Twitter memes involving Rihanna and Ed Sheeran.
