Billie Eilish is not here for negativity surrounding her fellow artists, even if that negativity is spewed by her own fans. When talks of a possible collaboration between Eilish and K-pop group BTS was met with disapproval, the 17-year-old artist was quick to shut it down.

Go off, sis.

It’s no secret that BTS are huge fans of Billie Eilish. During a Beats 1 Radio interview earlier this year, the group named her as an artist they hoped to work with soon.

A short while later, BTS member Jungkook tweeted a video of him dancing to Eilish’s “bad guy” that quickly went viral.

On Oct. 5, Eilish sat down for an interview with NPR music where a fan suggested that she work with BTS.

When Eilish asks the audience if she should do it, she’s met with many screams of “Yes!” However, there are quite a few fans that yell “No!” in response to her question.

You can see by Billie’s face that she’s surprised by the resounding “No” from fans and in turn, shuts down the negative response.

“Stop! Oh, my God, that is so mean,” Eilish tells the crowd. “I’ll listen to them. They’re very nice, they’ve said some very nice things about me.”

You can watch Billie’s response in the clip below.

Written by Whitney Shoemaker

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
