Last week, the Washington Post posted a negative comment on Post Mal Fest, the post-Malone music festival. Jeff Weiss's critique touched music, ethics and the rapper's appearance.

"The most popular young artist in the newest unpopular nation is a stratovy cowboy who seems to be dragging on a primitive wet marsh of nacho cheese," the article begins. "Post Malone is a Halloween rent, a removable platinum grille, a Cubic Zirconi proposal on the giant screen of a last-place team."

The critique also touched on the feeling of the day, which Weiss said to feel as a "rushmaker" of the fraternity that was carried out on hectares of corporate branded concrete. And also the music itself was discussed, which it compared to "bubbles and water bubbles." the casual misogyny of a member of a Red Pill subreddit. "

But as Drew Millard, who is a friend of Weiss, reported The Outline, Malone and his parents not only deal with criticism but also encouraged Weiss's harassment after it was published.

On Tuesday, October 30, the same day that the publication of the Washington Post was published and subsequently it was viral, Post Malone tweeted "f-k u", apparently directed to Weiss.

I also tweeted "chodez" one day later, without context.

After posting the article, Post Malone's parents tweeted a series of comments directed at Weiss.

In an exchange with his wife Jodie, Malone's father, Richard Post, used a rebellion, referring to Weiss as a "cat."

Later, Post published a counter-review of Posty Fest by Jake Kelly of The Daily Edge, an Irish-based outlet. Malone also resumed the article.

The Daily Edge article called the Washington Post piece "the lowest common denominator journalism" because "insults" [Malone] In an effort to bring "color" to a piece. "

"My favorite line: Bottom line- If your review has to return to its appearance, your opinion is probably not very good," said Post's father.
