Iggy was labelled ‘horrible’, ‘irrelevant’ and a ‘bad person’ in comments on her feed, while other fans pleaded for her to show more love to her dancers and asked for more details about the dancer’s wellbeing.Following the incident, Iggy took to Instagram to reassure her fans that the dancer was in fact going to be alright.
‘Hey guys, Just want to let everyone asking know my dancer is OKAY! The lights & heat caused her to have a seizure,’ she explained, before stating that ‘she is backstage feeling much better’.
