Post Malone live performance videos spark fan concern over well-being
Post Malone is on tour until March 21.March 6, 2020
Recently, fans have been sharing videos of our beloved Posty exhibiting strange behavior such as slurring his words, rolling his eyes back, stumbling and other things. The recent live performances show a stark difference between those in the past.
Post Malone dominated much of 2019 and is still going strong in 2020. The genre-blending rapper and singer dropped a massive album in Hollywood’s Bleeding, starred in a Super Bowl commercial, collaborated twice with Ozzy Osbourne, and has been selling out tour dates left and right.
However, fans have no been sharing some potentially disturbing videos of Post Malone’s recent behavior. Many are speculating that Post Malone may have a substance abuse problem and that we need to support him in any way we can.
It started when one fan posted a compilation of videos showcasing some odd Post Malone behavior. The videos included contain him interacting with fans, falling down and generally giving off the impression that he’s not okay.
You can’t sit there and tell me that this is normal behaviour from Post, it’s not and the man needs help before something bad happens to him. Whether it’s alcohol or drugs, he’s not using them for fun anymore, he’s abusing them. it’s too much now, people are worried. #postmalone

post malone has been acting strange and inebriated at his shows. ppl are fearing that this behavior is from drugs and alcohol. even if you don’t like post malone pls don’t cheer this on. he clearly needs help and ignoring it only leads to tragedies. remember amy winehouse. pic.twitter.com/8L428HzVQr

Guys please, Post Malone has been acting “weird” on stage since a few weeks. I’m not trying to assume anything, but he looks like he’s under drugs. So please, SPREAD THIS VIDEO. We lost too many artists over overdoses. I hope he’s gonna be okay. ? pic.twitter.com/NVGfewokn4
