Concertgoers can be heard murmuring as the 39-year-old added, “We’re here to hear some country music tonight. I’m singing some country damn music.”
After the Grammy winner started singing “Tin Man,” seven people could be seen exiting the venue, with one person saying, “Let’s go, come on, you don’t do that to fans.”
And now, one of the group members herself—Adela Calin—has spoken out about the incident.
“It felt like I was back at school with the teacher scolding me for doing something wrong and telling me to sit down back in my place,” the 43-year-old told NBC News. “I feel like she was determined to make us look like we were young, immature and vain. But we were just grown women in our 30s to 60s trying to take a picture.”
But not all fans were upset by Miranda’s behavior. In fact, many sided with the country singer and Whoopi.
“Good for Miranda,” one user chimed in underneath the now viral video. “This song is so special and beautiful.”
