Billie Eilish seemingly used Halloween costumes of an elderly man and a newborn to smear fans who were expressing displeasure at the age gap of 11 years between her and her rumored girlfriend Jesse Rutherford.
Billie uploaded a Halloween-themed slideshow of images and videos on the Instagram platform and posted a caption that reads, “life is crazy [clown emoji] happy Halloween.”
Although some of her pictures depict her carving a pumpkin or friends in costumes for Halloween The final slide evidently divided her fan base. Billie is twenty and dressed as a babydoll in an adorable pink bonnet, while Rutherford is 31, and has turned into an older man.
The photo appears to have been edited to appear as if it was taken with an electronic camera. It has the words “cancel” under Billie and “delete” under Rutherford.
A few fans are asking Billie to delete the photo because they feel it’s offensive and others are praising her for not caring about what her critics think of her.
For those who aren’t completely thrilled with this relationship and it’s not only due to the gap in age between the two. The critics have pointed out that the Neighborhood singer has been friends with Billie from the age of just 15 after a picture surfaced of them posing together at a party for Halloween in 2017.
In the case of those who are defending the relationship, many have made arguments Billie has reached the age of adulthood and is competent to make her own choices about whom she will date.
The two were romantically connected last month.
In the slideshow, it is believed that she’s releasing new music. The next slide shows a short video of a person standing in front of the window, and then looking in to observe Billie singing along to an unidentified techno-like track in her studio.
