The Internet Never Forgets

But sometime it forgives. Camila Cabello is having trouble selling tickets. Is the Internet still mad at her?
The Internet is fickle.

One day, everyone loves your posts, clicks hearts on sweet pics and gives you a thumbs up congratulating your every move.

The next, you’re fighting trolls at 4 a.m. under the comments section.

But hey, we wouldn’t have it any other way. The Internet has helped us develop a thick skin.
But in Camila Cabello’s case, the Internet may be hitting her where it hurts most: the wallet.

According to the widespread media reports, tickets for her Romance tour, set to kick off in Oslo in May, are not selling like hotcakes.

The North American leg has only sold about 50 percent of the seats, reports Yahoo!.

Back in 2018, Cabello’s Never Be the Same Tour, her first solo, sold out every date.

Could it be that even her most loyal fans are turning away from her?

Last month, the former Fifth Harmony member was called out hard after a social media user (@motivatefenty) unearthed disturbing old Tumblr posts from 2012 in which Cabello used racially insensitive language.

The “Havana” singer, 22, swiftly apologized for the posts (some which referenced the n-word), blaming the fact that she was too young to know better.

“I was uneducated and ignorant and once I became aware of the history and the weight and the true meaning behind this horrible and hurtful language,” she Tweeted, ”I was deeply embarrassed I ever used it. I apologized then and I apologize again now.”
More likely, her time in the spot light is fading from natural causes.

It ain't my preferred style of music, but I am in favor of forgiveness for teenage transgressions. I'm sure glad the internet wasn't around to record all of mine.
