Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson engaged in a war of words with some fans on Twitter on Monday night after the band’s concert in Koln, Germany. It seems that Manson was unhappy with the crowd's enthusiasm at the show, tweeting , “Koln you were so strangely subdued! Sold out show but so cold? Funny. I know you love us but why couldn't you show it? We still love you. Sx.”

Shortly after Manson posted the message, some fans attacked the singer with a barrage of tweets, which provoked some angry responses from Manson. A user named Conor Furlong tweeted , “@garbage do you really think it's alright to publicly criticise your fans, who've paid to go to your gig, for not worshiping you enough?” Mason reacted quickly to the diss, tweeting , “@ConorFurlong oh PULEASe BLOW ME.”

Another user, Nessymon, chimed in, tweeting , “@garbage you criticise people you paid to go to your show, you got their money, if they don't show any emotion you should be ok with that..” Manson then responded , “@nessymon f**king read what I wrote instead of having a knee jerk reaction + by the way I don't care a whit what you think of me so THERE.”
