Halsey has apologised after she called for the destruction of the offices of website that gave her a bad review - unknowingly calling for the One World Trade Centre building to collapse.
Music website Pitchfork published a review of Halsey’s new album Manic with a 6.5 rating, saying the record is “overpowered by the tedium of modern pop.”
In response, Halsey wrote in a since-deleted tweet: “can the basement that they run p*tchfork out of just collapse already.” [sic]
As Twitter users swiftly pointed out, Pitchfork is owned by Condé Nast - the headquarters of which are located in the One World Trade Centre building, which was built after the twin towers were destroyed in the 9/11 attacks.
“Losing my mind thinking about the person on halsey’s team who had to tell her she just called for the collapse of one world trade,” wrote journalist Ben Kesslen on Twitter.

Manic has been receiving largely positive reviews, earning an 81 percent score on review aggregation site Metacritic.
