AceShowbiz - Joshua Bassett only wants positivity at his show. The "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series" actor looked displeased when a rude audience member heckled with disrespectful comment about his rumored ex-girlfriend Olivia Rodrigo at his "The Complicated Tour".
In a clip that went viral, the 22-year-old actor/musician was seen performing his song "Set Me Free" to crowd who was singing along with him. The beautiful moment, however, was ruined when a heckler yelled, "F**k Olivia!" during the song.
Joshua immediately turned his head toward the heckler and shook his head, shutting down the fan. He was also seen rolling his eyes while not even pausing his emotional performance.
After watching the footage, fans were loving Joshua's responses. "In general he seems so respectful," one fan raved. "Awww he's so sweet," another user added.
Some others, meanwhile, urged people to just move on with one saying, "Cant people just forget about that bulls**t already…" Echoing the sentiment, someone wrote, "They're literally cool with each other. And disrupting a show for no reason…That person is a joke."
Joshua and Olivia first met on the set of "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series" in early 2019. The two were then rumored to be dating before they were involved in an alleged love triangle with Sabrina Carpenter.
Fans also speculated that Olivia's megahit "drivers license", which was released in January 2021, was about her split from her co-star who left her for Sabrina. Weighing own the popular fan theory, the "Sour" artist told Billboard, "I totally understand people's curiosity with the specifics of who the song's about and what it's about, but to me, that's really the least important part of the song. It's resonating with people because of how emotional it is, and I think everything else is not important."
Soon after the release of "drivers license", Joshua released "Lie, Lie, Lie" which was believed to be a response to Olivia's breakup ballad. The drama further intensified when Joshua showed support to Sabrina's song "Skin" which seemed to address the drama.
