The Weeknd faced a severe backlash over his tweet that probably had very bad timing.
The whole world was shocked after Russian President Vladimir Putin launched a military operation on Ukraine and at the same time coincidentally, the 'Blinding Lights' singer tweeted “LET’S GOOOOOOOO” on Wednesday night when the news about Russian invade broke.
“Horrible timing, king, horrible timing,” one follower commented. “At a time like this??” another user tweeted. “I mean, not the best timing,” one fan responded.
