Tweets sent from Cabello’s account afterward calling out “rude” fans were later deleted
During her opening ceremony performance for the UEFA Champions League Final over the weekend, Camila Cabello was booed by football fans.
Cabello’s medley of songs, which included ‘Seorita,’ ‘Bam Bam,’ ‘Havana,’ and ‘Don’t Go Yet,’ was met with a rowdy crowd at the Stade de France in Paris on Saturday (May 28), after ticketing issues caused thousands of fans to queue outside the venue, delaying the final between Real Madrid and Liverpool by more than half an hour.
As per mirror, fans became enraged and began jeering and chanting their teams’ anthems throughout Cabello’s performance, to which she responded with a since-deleted tweet.
“Playing back our performance and I can’t believe people were singing their team’s anthem so loud during our performance. Like my team and i worked tirelessly for so long to bring right vibes and give a good show,” it read, as per Metro.
The tweet was reportedly followed by another, which said: “Very rude but whatever. I’M GLAD U GUYS LOVED IT!!!!!”
Both posts were promptly taken down, with a source later telling Metro that “it was deleted because someone who has access to Camila’s account posted it intending to post on their own account”. NME has reached out to Cabello’s reps for comment.
In their place, Cabello’s tweets about the performance now read: “Thank you so much to my team and the dancers and musicians and creatives that worked so hard on this show !!!”
Last month, the singer launched her latest album, ‘Familia,’ and said on TikTok that the album-making process “saved my life.”
“By digging deeper into her heritage and her own psyche, Cabello has created her richest and most compelling album yet,” NME’s Nick Levine said while speaking of the record in a four-star review.
