On Saturday night, Maggie Rogers performed at Austin City Limits Live, and the following day she detailed her anger and hurt after getting verbally harassed by an audience member during the performance.
Rogers revealed that a male crowd member yelled at her to “take your top off” when she was speaking to the crowd before performing her hit track “Alaska.” Another man quickly joined in, yelling “you cute though.”
“I was stunned. Furious. Fuming. Confused,” Rogers detailed across social media. “And also – on a really basic level – it really hurt my feelings. I step on stage every night and give every part of me. And my community shows up every night and together, we create a safe space to amplify each other. To allow relief. To allow release. There’s a deep amount of trust there.”
