SMH: Audience Members Chant 'Kyrie' at Kehlani Show in Austin

Looks like some trolls were in attendance.

Published May 17, 2016

About two months ago, R&B songstress Kehlani was hospitalized after an apparent suicide attempt. The singer hit a tragic low point while dealing with the harsh backlash that bombarded her social media accounts as rumors were circulating that she cheated on Kyrie Irving with PARTYNEXTDOOR.

The whole situation was heartbreaking to watch unfold as it escalated, with the comments section on Instagram being particularly brutal.

While Kehlani since appears to be doing much better and working on music again, some of the singer’s “fans” are still giving her a hard time.

This past weekend, Kehlani was performing during JMBLYA 2016, an annual festival in Texas, when she unfortunately became the target for a bunch of trolling audience members that haven’t let the dramatic (and very serious) incident remain in her past.

Someone began chanting “Kyrie, Kyrie” during her set, interrupting her performance of her track “You Should Be Here.” While Kehlani kept her cool and remained unbothered, it’s sad that people are still hung up on a situation that the singer is still working through and healing from.

Lani Tsunami’s Instagram has been on the quiet side since she deleted and then reactivated her account and she has yet to publicly speak out about the love triangle and her alleged suicide attempt.

We’re sure being forced to relive the whole ordeal because of a petty crowd isn’t exactly how Kehlani wanted to spend her festival weekend, but we commend her for continuing her performance with grace.

Check out the clip of the distasteful chant below.
