(AllHipHop News) Singer Billie Eilish has blasted trolls who criticized her for paying tribute to her dead pal XXXtentacion.
The controversial rapper, real name Jahseh Dwayne Onfroy, had a history of domestic abuse charges, including the aggravated battery of a pregnant woman.
When Eilish went public with their friendship after he was shot dead last summer, she was attacked by feminists and women's rights campaigners.
She dedicated a song to the rapper at a show last year, telling fans XXXTentacion made her feel "OK when nothing else did."
In a new interview in the New York Times, she says, "I want to be able to mourn, I don’t want to be shamed for it. I don’t think I deserve getting hate for loving someone that passed."
