“It is a really big deal right now, and it is not a joke,” she said. “I know because a lot of us haven’t seen it with our eyes — what it’s been doing and who it’s been affecting — it’s hard to understand that it’s real. But it really is real, and I’ve seen a lot of young people out in the world, all over the place, going to the club or going to the beach, just going out and hanging out. It’s really irresponsible.”
Eilish went on to explain that social distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak was “everyone’s responsibility,” not just for themselves but for the weaker people around them. She urged everyone to stay inside and stay safe, although she clarified that people should “go outside, just don’t go out into the world.”
“Don’t panic, there’s enough supplies for people — don’t hoard things,” she stressed.
Shortly after Eilish posted her thoughts to her Instagram story, she made the announcement on Twitter that she was postponing her Where Do We Go Tour in North America: “Following last week’s announcement and in light of the ongoing CDC restrictions and guidelines, all of Billie’s remaining ‘WHERE DO WE GO’ North American tour dates are actively being rescheduled & will be announced soon. All tickets will be honored for the new tour dates.”
