Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen huge news break from the official Twitter accounts of the MagCon Tour, the 4OU tour and strangely enough, the Fifth Harmony 7/27 tour about various people being kicked off the lineup – but what the hell is happening?! To help out y’all that haven’t been able to stay on top of the drama, here’s everything you need to know about WTH is happening in the world right now.
The first tour drama comes from the Dolan twins who announced in late May that their 4OU tour would be continuing ONLY with Alex Aiono… so what happened to Nate Garner?! Grayson took to Twitter to let everyone know that “confusing things” were happening “behind the scenes” but the only thing that would help everyone would be “keeping a positive mindset and making sure this tour is the best it can be”. How cryptic!
In response, Nate tweeted out to his fans; “To answer your questions, I love you all more than words can explain & I wanted & expected to tour so bad! But not my decision… Nobody can stop me fro meeting all of you. Nothing means more to me than each of you. I love you more than I can ever explain! We will meet”. Nate’s name has also been removed from the official 4OU website, sparking rumours that this may have been quite a messy split from the Dolan tour.
Next up in the tour drama category is MagCon, which recently cancelled a Germany show because of “unfortunate events”. Whilst the official Twitter account kept it under wraps, Taylor Caniff took to his own account to let fans know that Colby James and Willie Jones were “literally jumped last night for not a single reason, phone stolen teeth knocked out and everything I really don’t respect the tweets… I came into a fight with 8 dudes to help my friends… it happens people get jealous… yo super sorry to the fans who was expecting a show today”.
To back up the alleged fight, Colby and Willie posted pictures of their injuries to Snapchat, with Colby showing his incredibly bloodied face and Willie showcasing his beaten up fist. The boys are said to be recovering before the next show, but fans are sending their love and thoughts in the hopes that they make a full recovery and continue the tour without anymore mishaps.
And lastly comes the tour drama pretty much everyone involved could see coming, but mostly because they freaking campaigned for it – Jack & Jack have officially been kicked off the Fifth Harmony 7/27 tour. Hardcore Harmonisers have worked relentlessly hard to get the duo removed from the tour after calling them “rats”, “racists” and even trending worldwide. However, whilst Fifth Harmony haven’t released an official statement, Jack & Jack shared a post on their Twitter claiming that they left of their own accord to focus on “finishing and releasing [their] first album”.
Jack & Jack fans have been uploading images of themselves getting refunds for the tour now that their faves have announced their departure, so can we expect the same thing happening to MagCon or 4OU now that Nate has gone? Let us know in the comments how you feel about all this drama, and watch this week’s episode of SLAY or NAY to find out what else YouTubers have been up to over the last seven days.
