泰勒·约瑟夫在发出一条炫耀自己新鞋的讽刺推文之后意外受到粉丝非议。因新冠疫情和美国黑人民权运动等事件使得美国社会乃至世界陷入黑暗境地,twenty one pilots 乐团粉丝多次对 Tyler Joseph 未能利用自己的影响力,尤其没有利用社交媒体网站的巨大关注量去推动改变而感到不快。

约瑟夫的推特上写道:"你们这些家伙一直让我用好我的平台。让我掸一掸这双酷家伙上面的灰,这感觉好极了。"这显然是对他的粉丝们的回击 - 他们希望他用推特来提出社会问题,而他特意用 Twitter 来摆姿势,炫耀酷鞋。

这引起了一些巨大的反击。twenty one pilots 乐团的忠实粉丝西奥(@sunnwillrise)立刻表现出愤怒,称他的行为 "非常非常低级,在很多层面上都不尊重人"。二十一飞行员的信息账号 @topupdating、@topupdated、@TOPUPDATERS 和@DiscordClique 也表达了自己的不满。@topupdating 用 "掸一掸你的笔记应用吧,该道歉了"回复了这条推文,并发布了多条针对约瑟夫的长文,因为他 "创下了新低";@topupdated 说:"如果你没有看到 @tylerrjoseph 的任何一条推文有问题,你就是问题的一部分。"

约瑟夫回应发布了美国预防自杀基金会的链接,并讨论了心理健康问题,但他决定为自己的推文辩护,称其 "太棒了",并明确表示这不是道歉。

这让追随者们再次不悦。@DiscordClique说,在约瑟夫 "明确表示......支持BLM"之前,文字频道将被关闭。@TOPUPDATERS说,在 "发出道歉 "之前,他们将停止更新。@topupdating 质疑:"你站在哪一边?"

约瑟夫之后“为伤害任何人道歉”,并说了 "黑人生命重要 "这几个字。


Joseph's Tweet read, "you guys keep asking me to use my platforms. feels good to dust these bad boys off.", which apparently meant as a fire-back at his fans - they want him to use Twitter to raise social issues and he purposefully used it to pose and show off cool shoes.

It caused some huge blow-back. Huge fan of twenty one pilots, Theo (@sunnwillrise), showed anger immediately, calling his behavior "very VERY low and disrespectful in so many levels". Information accounts of twenty one pilots, @topupdating, @topupdated, @TOPUPDATERS and @DiscordClique expressed their discontent as well. @topupdating replied the tweet with "dust off that notes app for your apology." and posted a long thread directed at Joseph because he "hit a new low"; @topupdated said "If you don’t see an issue with any of @tylerrjoseph’s tweets, you are part of the problem."

Joseph responded by posting a link to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and discussed mental health issues but decided to defend his "platform tweet" by calling it "fantastic" and made it clear it was not an apology.

It upset followers again. @DiscordClique said text channels would be shut down until Joseph "explicitly state(s) ... support of BLM". @TOPUPDATERS said they will remain inactive until "an apology is issued". @topupdating asked, "Whose side are you on?"

Joseph later apologized for hurting anyone and said the words "Black Lives Matter".
