Calum Hood learned the hard way that it’s never a good idea to irritate your fans.
The 5 Seconds of Summer heartthrob recently dealt with the fallout of a nude Snapchat session that ended up making the rounds on social media. Although fans were more than a little shocked to see Calum’s penis in all its glory, they seemed more than willing to forgive the guy. After all, naked boy band penis.
However, one thing his supporters simply will not tolerate is getting ignored, especially when they’re using every trick in the proverbial book to get his attention. According to Popcrush, Calum Hood felt the sting of fan backlash after he allegedly walked past a gaggle of fans without paying attention to any of them. It’s doubtful Calum intentionally wanted them feel extremely sad and dejected.
Although the Calum’s response to the agitated fan who started the controversy has mysteriously vanished from his Twitter feed (read: deleted), the folks at Sugarscape managed to snag the tweet before it disappeared. Here’s what Hood had to say.
“hi I don’t think you realize how many people we meet a day. Sometimes you need a break. You obviously don’t realise that. Bye.”
Cambio explains that the fan who tweeted something nasty to Calum quickly apologized for causing all the trouble in the first place. Her response is hanging out below. Warning: Her comments were originally in all caps, so we’ve decided to present the tweets as-is to emphasize the depth of her emotional outburst.
“LOVE YOU SO MUCH CALUM I NEVER MEANT TO HURT YOU THAT WASNT MY INTENTION I SWEAR. I ALWAYS COMPLAIN ABOUT HOW I WANT TO GET NOTICED BUT NOW I JUAT WISH I DIDNT BC EVERYONE HATES ME INCLUDING CALUM… THANKS TO EVERYONE WHOS TWEETED OR DMED ME NICE THINGS IM. SHAKING So MUCH RN… I HAVE DELETED THE TWEET AND I HOMESTLY HAD IT COMING I WAS SO RUDE I JUST DIDNT TJINK HED NOTICE ME.”

In other Calum Hood news, Unreality TV explains that the singer felt betrayed by the person who leaked his naked Snapchat pics online. During a chat with 2DayFM Sydney, bandmates Aston Irwin and Luke Hemmings described Calum’s current state of mind.
“I think with that, Calum… you just never, ever expect that someone would do that to you. Like, it sucks. You’ve got to laugh. We made fun of him a little bit, but I think he was kind of upset about it. Being a young one, you do stupid s**t sometimes.”
Do you think Calum Hood should have stopped and posed for photos with his fans? Do celebrities ever truly get a day off?
