Fans Are Holding Harry Styles Accountable: “Harry Wear A Mask”

Published

on

Harry Styles is the latest celebrity to get called out on social media. Since the beginning of the pandemic, we’ve seen a large increase in fans holding some of their favorite celebs accountable.

How Do Celebs Get “Cancelled”?

Known as “Cancel Culture,” people have used social media to “cancel” celebrities who are not wearing masks, seen traveling, and not social distancing. From Timothée Chalamet to Madonna, many fans have exposed their idols, urging them to remember that there is a pandemic going on.

It appears it is now Harry’s turn to be reminded of that pandemic. Earlier in the month, Harry Styles was spotted with rumored girlfriend Olivia Wilde at the wedding of Jeffrey Azoff (Styles’ agent).

BACKGRID

While fans have mainly been supportive of Styles’ unconfirmed relationship, many were disappointed to see him without a mask at the reception. Later in the week, Styles was spotted again with friends out and about in Santa Barbara, once again without a mask.

TWITTER

To make matters worse, Harry lives in Los Angeles, where there has been a large spike in COVID-19 cases recently. With nearly one in four people testing positive, the number of people being hospitalized are at a record high and many hospitals can’t keep up.

BACKGRID

Fans took to Twitter to express their disappointment, especially after this image surfaced on January 6th of Styles in a roofless car with 5 people.

“hi @Harry_Styles i love you, you know that. but you’re being so irresponsible right now and it’s incredibly sad to see.” one fan tweeted, in response to the image of Styles in the car.

TWITTER

Other fan asks the public to hold Harry and his friends accountable; “just because he’s harry styles doesn’t mean he should be allowed to do…”

TWITTER

On January 6th, the phrase “HARRY WEAR A MASK” became the 21st top trending phrase on Twitter worldwide. The backlash continued as more photos of Styles were released throughout the day. “People are using gift shops to house Covid-19 patients… don’t be like harry, wear a mask!” another tweeted.

Why Are Styles’ Fans So Upset?

Many fans are calling Harry out because of how outspoken he is on social media, urging others to take Coronavirus seriously. Although he had a tour scheduled for 2020, he decided to reschedule it early in March, tweeting “Anyone who knows me, knows that performing has been my favorite part of working in music. However, during times like these, the safety and protection of touring crew, fans, and everyone else around the world is an immediate priority.”

TWITTER

Since these images have surfaced, stans on Twitter believe that the “Watermelon Sugar” singer is not taking COVID seriously and is being a huge hypocrite.

“[Harry] has preached staying at home & saving lives all throughout the pandemic. he is just being so hypocritical,” one fan tweeted, alongside screenshots of Harry tweeting to following health guidelines.

TWITTER

Despite thousands of disheartened fans, they emphasize they are not trying to “cancel” Styles. “We are not trying to get Harry cancelled, we are simply educating him on the lives that have been taken by not wearing masks…” another tweeted.

We hope Harry and Olivia takes the advice to heart, especially since filming has halted in Wilde’s upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling after a member of the film crew contracted COVID in November.

Is Kimye Over For Good?

Published

CNN

2021 was all fun and games until rumors began that Kim Kardashian and her husband, rapper Kanye West have a divorce on the horizon. According to Page Six, a source has shared that for the couple, “divorce is iminent.”

GIPHY

Sources are saying that Kim has hired Laura Wasser to represent her as divorce attorney, though this has not officially been confirmed. Other sources have said to People that the couple is in marriage therapy trying to salvage their union and work on piecing their relationship back together.

GIPHY

It’s been rumored that Kim and Kanye have been spending a lot of time apart. Kim supposedly spent the holidays with the Kardashian-Jenner clan, while Kanye has been staying at his $14 million ranch in Wyoming. This news is shocking, as Kim and Kanye have been a power couple for almost a decade now.

The Christian Post

Sadly, there have been outrageous rumors swirling regarding Kanye. Though there is zero evidence to support this claim, rumors on TikTok have claimed that there have been relations between Kanye West, and makeup mogul, Jeffree Star.

GIPHY

This comes after an Instagram photo posted by Star, alongside a caption stating that he was ready for Sunday Service, which is Kanye’s famous Christian worship service that is held weekly in Calabasas, California. When Star was asked about the rumors personally, he cryptically responded with, “I’m having the best time in Wyoming, come visit sometime.”

Sources say that through all of this, Kim’s family has been extremely supportive, and above all just want the star to be happy, regardless of whether or not that means staying with or divorcing the rapper.

Kim and Kanye have been together since 2012, and even showed crazy good chemistry when Kanye appeared on an episode of Kim’s reality show in 2011. The couple finally went public with their relationship in 2012, and a year later announced that they were expecting their first child together. In 2013, they happily welcomed their first daughter, North West into the Kardashian-West clan. In 2014, they wed in an extravagantly elegant wedding in Italy.

USA Today

In 2015, Kim gave birth to their son, Saint, but suffered some complications. Because of this, Kim’s subsequent pregnancies were delivered via surrogate. Kim and Kanye proudly celebrated the birth of Chicago in 2018, and Psalm in 2019.

Harper’s Bazaar

Not only has Kim proven to be a loving mother throughout her marriage to Kanye, she’s been a faithful wife to her husband, who has struggled openly with mental illness and episodes of psychosis. Most recently, this summer when Kanye went on a rampage at a “Kanye 2020” rally, where he had high hopes of having his name on the ballot in the 2020 election.

DW

Kim took to Instagram to respond to concerns over the rapper’s mental health. In an Instagram story she said,

 “As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does knows how complicated and painful it is to understand. I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health. Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor. People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgemental and not understand that the individuals themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try… (sic)”

No matter what happens to Mr. and Mrs. West this year, we wish them and their children nothing but the best!

Things are about to get Wilde!

GIPHY

Harry Styles and actress Olivia Wilde were spotted hand in hand this weekend. The pair were in attendance at the intimate wedding of Styles’ agent, Jeffrey Azoff, and his bride, Glenne Christiansen. Following the wedding in Montecito, California, Styles, and Wilde were spotted outside of the former One Direction star’s home unloading luggage.

Page Six

According to sources, Styles and Wilde have been dating for several weeks. The British singer and the actress/director have been working together on her upcoming film, “Don’t Worry Darling.” The psychological thriller also stars Gemma Chan, Chris Pine, and Florence Pugh.

PopDarling UK

Wilde has stated that she was so ecstatic to have Styles join the cast, especially since she was so amazed by his performance in his most recent film, Dunkirk (2017). She has been openly supportive of Styles in the past, expressing her admiration for the way he breaks gender norms, most notably through his unique sense of fashion. In recent weeks, Styles was criticized for wearing a dress in a shoot for Vogue.

ABC

As Styles’ ex, Taylor Swift would say, “haters gonna hate!”

Anyway, the relationship between Styles and Wilde comes several months after news broke that Wilde and her ex, Jason Sudeikis ended their engagement. Sudeikis and Wilde ended their seven-year engagement earlier this year, according to People. The two share a son and a daughter, Daisy, and Otis. Since the split, sources say that they’ve remained amicable and have mastered the art of co-parenting.

GIPHY

For Mr. Styles, this relationship is the most recent since his previous fling with model Camille Rowe. However, Rowe and Wilde aren’t the only stars on his impressive dating resume. Styles has famously dated A-listers like Kendall Jenner, Taylor Swift, and the late X-Factor host, Caroline Flack.

GIPHY

We wish nothing but the best for Harry in Olivia, and hope that 2021 is filled with love and happiness.

And, in the wise words of Harry himself, “Treat People With Kindness!”
