YUNGBLUD Says Internet Trolls Are The Reason Mac Miller Died

The recent revelation about YUNGBLUD’s encounter with Jagger comes after an interview with VICE where the singer opened up about internet trolls and haters.

Even as he witnessed the grueling judgment the internet threw at him, the singer remained authentic with himself.

He noted that no one can define him in a category because he keeps “erasing conformity and erasing himself in boxing.”

Elsewhere in the interview, the “act like it” said netizens can be so mean to young artists, especially him, Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X and many others.

Furthermore, he also blamed Mac Miller’s death on online haters who continued to share negative comments about him.

Regarding his message to people who constantly criticize him, YUNGBLUD said that people should consider what other humans are going through personally, regardless of their popularity status in the industry.

“We need to be nicer to each other. We need to be nicer to the world,” he said.
