Content warning: this article discusses alleged sexual harassment
In case you’ve been sleeping under a very large rock, Billie Eilish is in the country at the moment playing both a headline tour of her own and headlining Groovin The Moo festival.
But in a bloody awful turn of events, Eilish has taken to social media to ask fans to stop groping her or touching her inappropriately during meet and greets.
According to pedestrian.tv, Eilish posted on her Instagram account, with a following of 20+ million, a story that asked fans to stop touching her inappropriately.
“Pls don’t grab my boobs in the meet and greet,” she wrote.
“Keep playing the shit cool but it is very much not.”
The incident that triggered the post reportedly happened at Eilish’s Sydney show at Hordern Pavilion last night. Eilish also said that she wasn’t sure if the person intentionally groped her.
“I think what happened last night (sic) was just an accident so I acted like I didn’t notice cuz I didn’t want to make her feel bad if she didn’t mean to do it,” she wrote.
Eilish has three more dates left of her tour, as well as three more dates of Groovin The Moo festival left to play.
