Phoebe Bridgers, who performed her second set on the last day of ACL (Austin City Limits) Music Festival in Austin, Texas, lost her cool after her performance was cut off by the organizers while she was in the middle of her last song. The California native, who was clearly angry with the decision, decided to call out ACL on Twitter while cursing them.

Phoebe Bridgers’ set was cut off for running slightly over time. A few videos made it to Twitter which showed the singer’s set getting disrupted after her performance was cut short over the weekend. However, the 27-year-old singer-songwriter decided to continue despite the interruption. This led to a debate between social media users as a few supported the crooner whereas, others slammed her for not adhering to the rules of the music festival. The first week of the ACL Music Festival was held on October 1, 2, and 3 and it returned this weekend i.e. 8-10 October.  The lineup also included Tyler, The Creator, Karol G, Machine Gun Kelly, Polo G, and others.

Why did Phoebe Bridgers curse at ACL?

Phoebe refrained from saying anything on stage during her live performance but she later expressed her anger on Twitter saying, “lol f**k acl.” Phoebe and her band were building up the finale of ‘I Know The End’- a song from her 2020 album ‘Punisher’ when her sound was abruptly cut-off. ACL has not yet come forward to comment on the same. Country singer Margo Price too extender her support to Phoebe tweeting, “Holy s**t, they cut your mic?! I would have taken a piss on the stage.”

MEAWW earlier reported how Miley Cyrus crashed Megan Thee Stallion’s ACL set in the first weekend of the music festival. We could see Miley running to the stage while Megan and her girls were already twerking to one of her hit songs. Miley Cyrus, who has shown her twerking skills on stage time and again, decided to join the girl gang as they all twerked for few seconds. Billie Eilish was too spotted having a gala time during Megan’s performance.





‘Maybe time your s**t within your allotted time’

The latest fiasco divided the Internet as some believed ACL did the right thing whereas, others felt it was wrong to cut sound mid-performance. “Better yet, blame yourself for being unprofessional and not respecting your given timeslot. Totally inconsiderate to everybody else who's affected when you exceed your time.  So right back at ya!”, said one user as another posted, “Maybe time your s**t within your allotted time slot instead of expecting everyone to let you go over your time??”
The next one posted, “Didn’t MGK played two extra songs? It’s was one last song and if promoters are fine with one artist doing it, why not the others?” Another mentioned, “And with the pride flag flying. I call this homophobia of ACL.” One user tweeted, “@phoebe_bridgers  saying ‘f*k acl’ gurl just say u flopped and move on.” Whereas, one person stated, “Damn acl really f**ked up by cutting off Phoebe bridgers sound mid closer. after a sorry a** lineup like this year’s too? levitation >>>>>>> acl.” And, one said, “No other people did not go over there times. ACL cuts off anyone who goes over. Simple as that.” While, one fan extended support to the singer saying, “Shame on the ACL sound techs who cut off Phoebe Bridgers during the climax of her finale for only going 1 minute after her time.”
