Breakout auto-crooner Post Malone is safe on the ground after an London-bound jet that took off from New Jersey was forced to make an emergency landing on Tuesday afternoon.
The 23-year-old hip-hop star responded in characteristic form.
i landed guys. thank you for your prayers. can't believe how many people wished death on me on this website. fuck you. but not today— Beerbongs & Bentleys (@PostMalone) August 21, 2018
A day after winning "Song of the Year" for "Rockstar" at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards, the tires on Malone's private jet burst shortly after takeoff from Teterboro Airport. The aircraft was left to circle around the Northeast for a few hours and burn off fuel before it could safely land at Stewart International Airport in New Windsor, New York.
During and after the ordeal, Post Malone's fans (and foes) weighed in on the situation on Twitter—some morbidly, to the disgust of his supporters.
This Post Malone plane situation is rough. My gut feeling is that they'll be ok in the end, but I couldn't imagine having to circle for hours to burn fuel due to 2 burst tires, knowing you have to perform an emergency landing at the end of it. My mind would be racing #PostMalone— Chris Date (@ChrisDate10) August 21, 2018
If you wished death upon Post Malone, you’re disgusting. Just because you dont like him or his music, doesn’t mean you can wish him death. At the end of the day, he’s someones son, someones love, someones best friend, someones idol.— ✞ (@estherwuff) August 21, 2018
if Post Malone dies, I want to die. #PostMalone— milas, austin milas (@austinjmilas) August 21, 2018

So sad to see all these people mocking Post Malone while his plane is attempting to burn fuel before making what could very easily be a crash landing... You don’t have to like someone to care that they’re human... #PostMalone #PrayingForSafety— Elizabeth Holland (@AuthorElizaB) August 21, 2018
The fact that people are making jokes about Post Malone's plane needing to make an emergency landing is yet more proof that we are breeding a generation of psychopaths. CHECK YOURSELVES. #PostMalone— Amelia (@Amelia_mcJ) August 21, 2018

I don't think any of us were ready for a post-Post Malone world.— Daniel Foster (@DanFosterType) August 21, 2018
Fans in Philadelphia will have a chance to see Post Malone alive and well next month when he's in town to perform at the Made in America festival on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
