On Saturday, February 1st, Halsey took the stage at a pre-Super Bowl LIV party in Miami, Florida. And because things can never go according to plan, Halsey had to take time out of her performance to clap back at a heckler who wouldn’t stop shouting the name of her ex, G-Eazy, whom she split from in 2018.
Fans at the show caught the moment on camera. Halsey appeared to be in the middle of introducing her next song when she snapped around and called out whoever was screaming “G-Eazy.”
And because we love to see women reclaiming the space they earned from those who think it’s okay to ridicule them, the entire crowd erupted in cheers. Go off, Halsey. Put that hater in their place!
The video of the incident was posted to Twitter, and the platform gave her a standing ovation for taking back her spotlight.

To anyone who isn’t on Halsey’s side in this situation:
kanye has literally got an entire concert yelling fuck taylor swift for no reason. offset has straight up thrown hands with people. yet when halsey defends herself from crowd members being disrespectful, she’s ‘unhinged’ and ‘unprofessional’. your misogyny is showing twitter! https://t.co/hX8Bw4G4O8— ava (@zceys) February 2, 2020
After the show, Halsey took to Instagram to spread the good word and back up her on-stage actions.
