Singer Trey Songz has seemingly been in the crosshairs when it comes to social media and his past, and present, activities on social media only inflame instead of selling more music. The singer found himself slammed for a meme earlier this year and probably wishes that were the end of it, with everything else going on.
A few days ago, the singer found himself once again in hot water – but this time, off of the Internet and in real life. While much of the United States is gripped in crisis with overflowing ICU’s, Songz was hosting a club night in Atlanta and got hell for it.
A few weeks ago, Songz performed at Aftermath in Columbus, OH and apparently there were over 500 people in attendance – which is a no-no during many states’ pandemic lockdowns in order to curb the spread of the disease. And judging from the clips that were posted to social media of the event, you can see why the states are choosing to ask people to stay at home.
“The dance floor and stage area, as well as the bar and table sections were crowded with patrons. Patrons were congregated throughout the premises with no attempts to maintain social distancing and no physical barriers in place,” a press release about the observed “egregious violations of health orders.”
“Agents observed patrons standing, walking freely and sharing alcoholic beverages directly from the same bottle as they were passed between groups. No social distancing or physical barriers were in place. Most of the crowd and the employees were not wearing facial coverings.”

What was even more disappointing to many, on Songz part, is that the singer has already confessed to fans that he’d caught the virus earlier in the pandemic – and pleaded with his fans to not “be like the President” [Donald Trump] if they come into contact with the dangerous disease.
“I’ve taken many tests as I’ve been out protesting, food drives, of course I have a very young son at home, so I get tested periodically and this time unfortunately it came back positive,” he shared back in October.
“I will be taking it seriously. I will be self-quarantining, I will be in my house until I see a negative sign,” he said before his admonishment for others to do the same. “Please do the same. Don’t be like the president [Donald Trump]. Much love and peace, y’all.”
There was no word from Songz about the Aftermath club incident, but one can wonder if he longs for the earlier days in the pandemic – when he was getting called out for just posting silly memes.
Reposting a meme on his IG with some laughing emojis, Songz caught flack for his perceived age and past troubles with women over the content of the meme.
Trey Songz needs to worry about those sexual assault accusations & not whether women born after 1993 can cook & clean.— Bella Goth (@HoodSocialism) September 18, 2020
“Any female born after 1993 can’t cook, all they know is McDonalds, charge their phone, twerk, be bisexual, eat Hot Chip and lie,” read the post, originally posted by rapper Trouble.
Though the meme was meant to be lighthearted, Songz more than likely regretted he posted it, thanks to the responses of some of the Internet.
