'Disney Family Singalong': Outraged fans call out Zac Efron for not joining his 'High School Musical' cast
The fact that Zac Efron didn't participate in the singalong has gotten his fans extremely upset, as they eagerly waited to see the entire cast come together
'Disney Family Singalong' which premiered tonight (April 16) on ABC had an interesting line up of musicians, who sang their rendition of various Disney classics in the hour-long virtual event, spreading some joy and love to overcome the coronavirus outbreak.
Although the event witnessed a special appearance by some of the biggest singers, millennials across the globe waited with bated breath to watch the ‘High School Musical’ cast come together to perform their hit song 'We're All In This Together'.
However, their excitement was short-lived, as the lead character of the superhit franchise, Zac Efron made a brief appearance, only to introduce the rest of the cast prior to the performance.
The fact that he didn’t sing along has left fans extremely upset, as they eagerly waited to see the entire cast come together.
Appearing only for a few seconds on-screen, in the recorded video message Efron said, "Hi, everyone. I hope you're safe and healthy and doing as well as possible during these unprecedented times. It’s my greatest pleasure to introduce a musical performance by some of my oldest friends and some new ones."
He added, "I hope that you enjoy, and remember, we are all in this together." One fan immediately reacted, "Literally so upset Zac Enron didn't actually do the sing-along."
Another took a dig at him saying, “It makes me laugh how everybody is dragging Zac Efron for not doing the sing-along, but let's be real: the boy cannot actually sing. He gets autotuned to filth for any sort of singing role. Stop harassing the man, he's in the middle of a spiritual awakening damn it."
Meanwhile, another fan who was looking forward to watching him joining the OG cast tweeted, "DID YOU SEE IT?!! Zac Efron was on the Disney Singalong! But why didn't he sing? You thought remote learning would keep me from talking about him to you? De+el just like Zac+Señora. I hope you remember this joke Spanish students!"
A few fans also noted how the song titled 'We're All in This Together', ironically didn't actually bring all of them together. "When they told me Zac Efron was going to sing we're all in this together but then he didn't.... #DisneyFamilySingalong," said another fan mockingly.
However, the special performance featured the rest of the 'High School Musical' actors including Vanessa Hudgens, Corbin Ortega, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Monique Coleman and director of the franchise Kenny Ortega, who introduced his beloved cast.
