He deserves the backlash. I think he should have done this privately.

He's like a D-list Act whose career won't ever take off anyway.

The moral of this story is don't buy shit for your faves. They ain't got time to water your flowers, eat your baked cupcakes, wear your homemade tshirt or keep your stuffed animal. They're always travelling/working and they receive heaps of stuff!

Just shake their hand/give them a hug, tell them what they mean to you, snap a pic and keep it moving! At most, you could write a letter with your thoughts and feelings that they can read, but even that'll probably be tossed eventually!

Jesper wrote:It is a bit messy, but the outrage on twitter is not needed, apparently he got those flowers a few days before he threw them away and he was on his way to get a ride to the airport or whatever. Was it smart to do it in public? No, but disposable things like flowers and food will be thrown away eventually, so I don't really see it as disrespectful, just a bit messy since he could know there are paparazzi around.

I had to Google him to find out who he was. My initial instinct was that he was just another pretty boy on YouTube with a large following, but to his credit he's actually done a lot of other stuff too.

According to Wikipedia:

Troye Sivan Mellet (born 5 June 1995), known professionally as Troye Sivan (/trɔɪ sɪˈvɑːn/), is a South African-born Australian singer, songwriter, actor, and YouTube personality. As an actor, he played the younger version of the titular character in the 2009 X-Men film X-Men Origins: Wolverine and starred as the title character in the Spud film trilogy. Sivan used to make YouTube videos regularly and, as of 2 April 2016, has over 4 million subscribers and over 241 million total views.[2]

On 15 August 2014, Sivan released his first major-label EP, entitled TRXYE, which peaked at number 5 on the U.S. Billboard 200. The lead single from the EP, "Happy Little Pill", reached number 10 on the Australian charts. On 4 September 2015, Sivan released his second major-label EP, Wild. His debut studio album, Blue Neighbourhood, was released 4 December.[3] Its first single, "Youth", became Sivan's first single to enter the top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at twenty-three.

His video, "The 'Boyfriend' Tag", with fellow vlogger Tyler Oakley earned them a Teen Choice Award in the "Choice Web Collaboration" category. In October 2014, Time named Sivan as one of the "25 Most Influential Teens of 2014".[4]

He's also used the n-word before and is a racist.

Even though it is not much of an excuse but the only reason he said it, is because he sang along with a song. And it was a few years ago, until we get evidence that he uses the n-word on a regular basis and actually is racist in his behaviour aswell, it is too easy to call someone racist, since singing along with a song is not the same as being racist, otherwise loads of concerts by rappers in countries where the majority are white people are filled with racists by that logic.

Using the word is awful, but the context is what matters

Read what Jesper wrote.

Using that word is awful but if he just sang along to a song, it clearly is not racism.

Or whenever you sing along to N.E.R.D. & Rihanna's "Lemon", do you make a pause when that word pops up and you continue singing along afterwards each time?

I mean obviously he should’ve been more discreet about this / just left them in his hotel room but clearly he was throwing them away a few days later because they’d wilted :lol: Not like he said to the fan ‘I don’t want your stupid flowers, fatty’ and then threw them away in front of their face :lol: This is really just people looking for something to bury someone under

I agree. Not condoning the use of the word by white people at all, but saying it once when you’re 15 and don’t know any better or whatever doesn’t automatically make you racist. People can do silly stuff in their teens which then people seem determined to find to make them get a backlash :roll:

People can overreact so much these days, sure it may not be the nicest thing to do but reading some comments it feels like he physically attacked a fan or something.
