Halsey is apologizing tor tweeting a response to a Pitchfork review of her new album. The review states that “she isn’t quite the radical she thinks she is” and that “too much of the album sounds like the amorphous pop star you might associate with a miserable Lyft ride.”
In response, on Thursday (1-23) she tweeted: “Can the basement that they run pitchfork out of just collapse already.” Afterwards, someone pointed out the address of the magazine as One World Trade Center, in New York City. She quickly deleted the message and re-tweeted.
Halsey then clarified that the original tweet was a total misunderstanding and that she had no idea where the website's office was located. Her re-post read: “ABSOLUTELY deleted it upon realizing this. Was just trying to make a joke! Intended zero harm. Just figured I could poke at them back with the same aloof passive aggression they poke at artists with! Clearly a misunderstanding ❤️”
The magazine is located in the skyscraper that was built to commemorate the collapse of the Twin Towers following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
