In a recent Vegas concert, country music sensation Miranda Lambert found herself amidst controversy as she called out a group of fans during her performance, leading to a divisive response from her audience.

Renowned for her acclaimed song “Tin Man,” Lambert paused her performance abruptly, seemingly irritated by a group of fans taking selfies during her performance. “I need to halt this for a moment,” Lambert told her audience, pointing to a section of the crowd. “These girls appear to be more interested in their selfies than the song. That’s quite annoying,” she added.

The 39-year-old country music star did not shy away from expressing her displeasure. “I’m not fond of this. Not at all,” she said, earning applause from a segment of the audience. “We’re here to savor some country music tonight. I’m here to belt out some good ol’ country tunes.”

Lambert then instructed the disruptive group to sit, after which she asked the audience, “Shall we start over?” before resuming her song. The incident stirred mixed feelings among the audience. While some started to cheer and whistle for Lambert, others chose to exit the arena in protest.

A video clip shared by a fan captured the moment, along with a voiceover saying, “Let’s go. C’mon. That’s not how you treat fans.” This video garnered massive attention on social media, particularly TikTok, where it sparked a hot debate among users.

One confused fan commented, “I’m a Miranda fan, but what was that?” A more sympathetic user voiced support for the artist, writing, “Give your undivided attention to the artists you’ve paid to see… not everything needs to be filmed. LIVE IN THE MOMENT.”

Yet, most of the commentary leaned towards criticism of the “The House That Built Me” artist. “I would’ve left, too. That’s absurd. They paid for their tickets. If you don’t want photos taken, don’t allow phones,” one irate user posted. Another remarked, “Many fans record their reactions to hearing their favorite song liveā€¦ they were just excited. That response was completely unnecessary.”

Lambert’s next appearance for her Velvet Rodeo residency is scheduled for Wednesday. This incident has left fans wondering if the atmosphere will be different at her forthcoming performance.
