The fan who was scolded by Miranda Lambert for taking a selfie with her friends at the Las Vegas concert over the weekend has spoken out.
“It felt like I was back at school with the teacher scolding me for doing something wrong and telling me to sit down back in my place,” the concertgoer named Adela Calin told NBC News
“I feel like she was determined to make us look like we were young, immature and vain,” she continued. “But we were just grown women in our 30s to 60s trying to take a picture.”
Calin, who was “appalled” by the country singer’s reaction, added that the selfie took “30 seconds at most.”
“We took the picture quickly and were going to sit back down,” she said.
The social media influencer, 43, told the outlet that her group “couldn’t get one good picture” before the show started, so she asked someone to take their photo toward the end of the concert.
The singer, 39, came under fire for stopping her performance of “Tin Man” to scold the women taking a group photo at her concert.
The following day, Calin posted the photos in question to her Instagram.
The six women were seen smiling for the camera as Lambert performed in the background.
