Billie Eilish hits back at internet trolls: "I try so hard to do good for the world"

Billie Eilish has addressed the thorny issue of online abuse from internet trolls in her latest interview.

Eilish spoke to BBC Radio 1’s Clara Amfo as part of the forthcoming documentary Billie Eilish: Up Close, due to air this Saturday (7th of August). 

During the interview promoting her second album Happier Than Ever which was released last week, the pair tackled the growing issue of online abuse and how Eilish has often been the target of online trolls. 

“The people that say the crazy stuff don’t even think you’ll see it,” Eilish told Amfo. “They would never say that to you in real life.”

Later adding: “What is the point of trying to do good, if people are just going to keep saying that you’re doing wrong. I try so hard to do good for the world and do good for people.”

Her comments come after her brother and collaborator Finneas, called out an account seemingly dedicate to circulating rumours about the young star. Finneas wrote: “The account BilliesUpdatess is posting relentless lies about Billie so if you see that account, report and block Em.”
