But the Instagram account that posted the meme still archived the post over fears of getting reported and banned by “these crazy ass stans.”

Fans of Eilish immediately started using the hashtag #billieeilishisoverparty to defend the singer for simply liking a meme.

Many Eilish fans voiced their frustration with cancel culture, as they feel Eilish didn’t do anything to deserve truly being canceled.

“We have these cancel parties like every week. Y’all need your twitter privileges revoked for a month any time ya start this shit,” one Twitter user commented.

“Bigger sh*t going on but y’all got distracted by something so small. It’s social media. A meme. It’s never that deep. Just stop,” another Twitter user said.
