Billie Eilish Asks Fans To Stop Impersonating Her In Prank Videos
Billie Eilish is calling out a certain YouTube trend, in which people go out and impersonate her signature look, right down to her neon green roots.
Billie Eilish took to Instagram to shut down new trend
“Please stop doing this s—,” the Grammy winner wrote on her Instagram story. “It is not safe for you and it is mean to the people who don’t know any better. You make me look bad.”
On Thursday the "Bad Guy" singer called out certain YouTubers for copying her look, and going to malls and busy streets, tricking fans into thinking they are seeing the real Eilish.
Following her plea for the end of the new trend, Jordan Matter, a popular YouTuber, responded to Eilish.
“I had absolutely no intention of disrespecting Billie. I’m a big fan, like everyone else," he wrote on Instagram.
"I’ve never done a celebrity impersonation video before, but they’re pretty common so I thought it would be fun to add my own acrobatic twist … I have reached out directly to Billie and Maggie and apologized, and I will not post the video without their permission.”
Eilish has received much praise lately, winning four GRAMMY awards, being the youngest ever to do so.
Her success will continue on, as she is said to perform the 92nd Oscar Award Ceremony, which will take place on February 9.
