The following day she shared a statement detailing her anger and hurt at being the victim of verbal harassment from a member of the audience at the show.

Rogers claims in the statement that a male crowd member told her “take your top off” as she was addressing the room prior to performing her hit “Alaska.” Another man allegedly joined in, saying “you cute though” to her.

“I was stunned. Furious. Fuming. Confused,” Rogers wrote in a message shared across her social media. “And also—on a really basic level—it really hurt my feelings.” She added: “I want to use this moment to be very very clear. There is no space for harassment or disrespect or degradation of any kind at my show.”

The FADER has reached out to the venue for comment. Read Rogers’ full statement below:
