Swifties are one of the most passionate fan bases in all of music; Family Guy‘s latest episode addresses extreme fandom and it’s partially based on Taylor Swift’s devotees. So, publicly criticizing Swift online probably isn’t the best idea unless you want your mentions to blow up and want to have a bad time. That brings us to Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx, who decided to share his thoughts about Swift, seemingly regarding the Ticketmaster/The Eras Tour situation.
On November 19, Sixx tweeted, “Is it just me or does Taylor Swift always seems likes she’s whining about something new every-time she’s gonna drop an album? #Wo[e]IsMeMarketing.”

One person questioned Sixx’s decision to send that tweet, writing, “Jeez man, you gonna call her out? I mean you’re band is big and all but the wraith of the #Swifties is not something you want take on. She’s nearly doubled your record sales and she’s 1/3 of your age. Just seems petty on your end.”

Indeed, folks came through and putt Sixx in his place, like one who wrote, “Pretty weak take. She’s prolific. She’s essentially dropped five new LPs of NEW material in the last two years, while the Crue just rehashes the same ole, same ole. And she’s def not a whiner.”
Check out some more Sixx responses below.
Whining or standing up for herself? I think all the biggest artist in the concert biz should step up and help fix the problems with Ticketmaster. If live music keeps going this way, fans will start spending their money else where. It’s getting out of hand. Look at the movie biz.

Wow!! As a fan of both you and Taylor I am disappointed in you. What a misogynistic, uninformed comment. And yea it’s just you!!!

Crue fan since the beginning and a Taylor fan but this is just mean . Thought you were anti bully and this sounds like something a bully would say . If that’s what she’s doing in your eyes it works . Her net worth shows to be at $450 million and your shows $45 million .

I’m with Taylor on this. Ticketmaster screws the artists & fans way too often. Someone has to stand up for the fans. It was sad to hear about all her fans that waited hours, finally got their seats & suddenly are sent back to the queue. I’ve been there before & it’s frustrating.

I'm a huge Motley Crue fan but talking shot about other artists is distasteful. I don't like Taylors music at all but seriously. There is no point to this post. 🤷🏻♀️
