Artists like Charlie XCX, Ice Spice, and Morgan Wallen deal with fans booing Taylor Swift at their shows.

Taylor Swift may have a massive following, but her naysayers have become quite vocal at other artists’ concerts as of late. Charli XCX called out fans at her recent São Paulo set who yelled “Taylor Swift is dead!” in Portuguese while she performed. When Ice Spice fans booed the rapper’s set during Rolling Loud Europe when she started performing “Karma,” her remix collaboration with Swift, she took the high road, blowing them a kiss.

And when Morgan Wallen jokingly remarked at his show in Indianapolis back in April that his show would be the most attended concert at Lucas Oil Stadium until Taylor Swift plays there, fans reacted poorly, booing at the pop star’s name. “We ain’t gotta boo, we ain’t gotta boo,” Wallen quickly interjected, though he then acknowledged appreciation for his fans’ support. “I appreciate that — I know you all got my back, though.”

“Can the people who do this please stop, online or at my shows,” Charlie XCX wrote on her Instagram story following the negative Swift chants at her PARTYGIRL DJ set in Brazil. “It is the opposite of what I want, and it disturbs me that anyone would think there is room for this in this community. I will not tolerate it.”

Charli’s fans have been quick to attack Swift ever since the latter released a UK exclusive digital version of her album The Tortured Poets Department, seemingly to block Charli’s latest album, Brat, from reaching the top spot on the UK charts during the week of its release.

The apparent rivalry was further fueled by the fact that the English singer is engaged to The 1975’s drummer, George Daniel, while Swift used to date the band’s lead singer, Matty Healy. Lyrics from Charli’s song “Sympathy is a knife” seem to be written about Swift, with references to not wanting to see an unnamed girl who “taps [her] insecurities” backstage at her boyfriend’s show.

Meanwhile, Ice Spice and Taylor Swift, whose collaboration on the “Karma” remix reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 when it was released last year, have been very vocal in their support for one another. The 24-year-old rapper has said that the 34-year-old pop star has been a guiding light for her as she’s risen to fame in her own career. “When I was in the studio with Taylor, like, I’ll never forget that,” Ice told Billboard. “She told me, ‘No Matter what, just keep making music and everything’s going to be fine.’”

Morgan Wallen was obviously not expecting fans to react negatively to his offhanded mention of Swift at his Indianapolis stop in April during his One Night at a Time Tour. “They told me right before I walked on stage that this is the single most attended concert in the history of this building,” Wallen told fans, having just reached a similar milestone in London. “I’m gonna say that ‘til Taylor Swift comes to town in the fall,” he quipped, predicting the pop star’s likelihood of surpassing his attendance record when her Eras Tour hits Lucas Oil Stadium for a three-night stand in November.

Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour is currently jet-setting across Europe, culminating with a slew of Wembley Stadium shows in London in August. She then heads back to North America for the final leg of the tour, which sees its grand finale in December.
