I've seen a few negative things posted on Facebook too about how he's a dick that's why I asked, not jumping to conclusions about the guy just curious why people keep saying it.
I added his page on Facebook when he had very few followers. I really enjoy his music, but he needs a PR team to handle his social media. I recall that he posted a lot of very conservative comments (pretty sure that he's a die hard Republican) about gun control on his Facebook, and they were pretty aggressively and unnecessarily outspoken against liberals.
I don't care what his opinions are, because he's entitled to believe whatever he wants. But he pissed off the core of his fan base, since most younger people are liberal. He argued (argued, not debated) with his fans publicly on his Facebook, and a lot of people started unliking his page that day. He ended up apologizing at the end of it.
A couple of days later, somebody hacked his Youtube account and deleted all of his videos. It was pretty uncalled for, even if he did upset a lot of people. I still really like his music, and I don't care about his political opinions, but he shouldn't argue with his fans, let alone do it publicly. It's really unprofessional, especially taking into consideration that his Island for the Misfit Boy video had just gone viral.
But he's 22. He's young. Young people do stupid things.
