Post Malone's fans are worried about his well-being.
After a series of videos surfaced on Twitter, showing the 24-year-old artist stumbling on stage, behaving strangely, and seemingly under the influence at multiple stops of his ongoing "Runaway Tour," Posty's fans took to Twitter to express their concern.
"You can’t sit there and tell me that this is normal behaviour from Post, it’s not and the man needs help before something bad happens to him," one fan captioned a series of videos showing Post's strange behavior. "Whether it’s alcohol or drugs, he’s not using them for fun anymore, he’s abusing them. it’s too much now, people are worried. #postmalone."
Another fan added: "someone needs to help post malone and cancel his tour asap. stop brushing it aside and say that this is what he does because this isn't normal behavior it's clearly a cry for help and we've lost too many artists bc of this."

The Hollywood's Bleeding rapper recently opened up about his mental health in GQ Style's latest cover story. “Middle school, I would cry myself to sleep every f**kin' day. High school, the same thing. I tried to drink some beers to get rid of that sh*t, but it just never goes away. And I don't think that's anybody's fault; it has to do with something predisposed in you," he shared.
While Post admitted that his mental health is a work in progress, he said he knows the risks of self-medication, noting the death of his musical peers Mac Miller, in 2018, Lil Peep, in 2017, and Juice WRLD, this past December. “That could have been me,” Post admitted. But when asked whether he was getting help for his own mental health problems, he was vague, saying, “I am, now—I'm trying. It's difficult. Through my songs, I can talk about whatever I want. But sitting here, face-to-face, it's difficult.”
Posty has yet to respond to his fans' tweets.

“That’s just him performing!!! Nothing wrong!”— WomenSupportingWomen💗😌 (@CodyDickPickle) March 6, 2020
This is how we lose people. We act like weird behavior is nothing wrong, until something happens and the person ends up seriously injured or dead. He does not look okay, there’s something wrong. #PostMalone
Yo, protect Post Malone man.. I’ve been seeing these videos of him performing where he’s not looking too good. Bro looks like he’s crying out for help on stage..— BlackySpeakz (@BlackySpeakz) March 6, 2020
All I’m saying is I hope he gets the help he needs if he’s hurting. I’d hate to see anything happen to him
