On Feb. 6, Saturday Night Live was hosted by Schitt’s Creek star Dan Levy and featured musical performances from Grammy-Award nominated artist Phoebe Bridgers. During her SNL debut, Bridgers took her “I Know The End” performance to the next level by smashing her electric guitar onstage.

Now, Bridgers is reacting to the criticism she’s received for her guitar-smashing decision. As well, she had the best responses to singer David Crosby who doesn’t have many positive things to say about her performance.

Just one week after Machine Gun Kelly‘s Saturday Night Live debut, Phoebe Bridgers hit the coveted stage for a debut of her own. During the episode, she performed “Kyoto,” which is nominated for multiple 2021 Grammys, as well as “I Know The End,” the closing track of her 2020 album Punisher.

Shortly after her performance aired, Bridgers earned some criticism after she decided to smash her guitar onstage. For many, they thought the smashing of the instrument was unnecessary. Some also argue she could’ve donated the equipment she destroyed.

However, Bridgers tweeted that she told the company – Danelectro – she planned to smash the $85 guitar during Saturday Night Live.

“I told danelectro I was going to do it and they wished me luck and told me they’re hard to break.”

As well, she also made it known that she didn’t actually ruin a perfectly good monitor. As it turns out, Saturday Night Live provided a fake one, especially for the performance.

“They made me a fake one to break lol.”

Then, earlier this week, singer David Crosby weighed in on the controversy. One fan asked what Crosby thought of Bridgers’ performance to which he replied with “pathetic.”

Then, on Feb. 9, Crosby followed up with more of an explanation for his criticism.

“Guitars are for playing ..making music …..not stupidly bashing them on a fake monitor for childish stage drama …..I really do NOT give a flying F if others have done it before It’s still STUPID”

After Crosby’s tweet, one Twitter user argued that women in music are judged more harshly for the same actions done by their male counterparts.

“What’s pathetic is the double standard that a woman is being judged for doing something a man has done a million times and somehow that’s cool but in this case it’s not? That’s not even remotely okay.”

For Crosby, he explains that he doesn’t like it when artists smash instruments regardless of their gender.

“I didn’t like it when men did it either …it’s stupid drama …poor substitute for talent …..”

Naturally, Bridgers had the best response to Crosby’s criticism.

“little bitch.”

Following all of this, Crosby then began questioning Bridgers’ songwriting to which Bridgers had another response.

“whiny bitch.”

Despite all of this, fans are still coming to Bridgers’ defense including Bayside‘s Nick Ghanbarian.
