Post Malone: "I Can't Believe How Many People Wished Death on Me"

Bad news: Twitter remains a terrible place.

Good news: after his private jet blew two tires and hovered over a New York airport to prepare for emergency landing, Post Malone is safe and sound. Bad news: Twitter remains a terrible place and while in the air, Malone apparently received a grip of death wishes.

Regardless of how you feel about Post Malone’s music, he has never done anything morally reprehensible enough to the point where wishing death upon him and whoever he was in the air with is even passable recourse. After the passing of A$AP Yams, Wale faced a similar backlash on social media, with Retchy P suggesting Wale should have died in place of Yams.

Wale and Posty are people, and the spreading of this sentiment is both irresponsible and inhumane. Scrolling through our coverage of artists discussing social media, we can cite hundreds of examples of artists having to log out, deactivate, or quit socials altogether for their own mental health. Death wishes not always required.
