Lorde Wins Hearts By Sending A Bullied ‘X Factor’ Contestant Cupcakes

A contestant named Joe Irvine was mercilessly bullied by a couple of judges on the New Zealand version of  “The X Factor.”

Irvine was torn apart by judges Natalia Kills and her husband, Willy Moon, for allegedly stealing Moon’s style. Natalia called Irvine “a laughing stock” and Moon said,

It’s like Norman Bates dressing up in his mother’s clothing. It’s just a little bit creepy. I feel like you’re going to stitch someone’s skin to your face and then kill everybody in the audience.

Suffice it to say, the judges went way overboard in their critique of Irvine.

Here’s video of the incident:


Kills and Moon have been fired from the program for their unnecessarily harsh words.

Irvine, on the other hand, received praise and support from the likes of Lorde and Ed Sheeran. Lorde sent Irvine a box of cupcakes and a handwritten note to cheer him up.


Ed Sheeran tweeted this to Irvine:


The lesson here is this: If you bully people for no reason on television, you might evoke the wrath of Lorde. And you’re not going to like Lorde when she’s angry.
