In a recent interview, Hayley Williams, the frontwoman of the iconic emo pop band Paramore, revealed the real reason behind the series of postponed shows on their current US tour. The 34-year-old singer disclosed that she was battling a severe lung infection, which forced her to prioritize her health and well-being over the performances.
The decision to postpone the shows came after Williams’ body “just gave out” as she attempted to push through the illness initially. However, the singer faced a barrage of nasty reactions from internet users, often referred to as “internet bros,” who criticized her for the move.
Among the negative reactions, one user went as far as using derogatory language and comparing Williams to Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, who famously performed despite breaking his leg onstage. The comment sparked outrage among fans and supporters of Hayley, emphasizing the importance of understanding the complexities of each individual’s health.
