Summer Walker officially cancels certain tour dates to tend to her mental health.

We all know how terrible mental health can be for our day-to-day lives and can even affect how we perform simple tasks. As an artist, being on tour can also be a hindrance on one’s own mental health. Summer Walker took to her Instagram to announce that she will be cancelling certain dates for her First and Last Tour due to her ongoing battle with social anxiety.

This announcement comes days after announcing that she hopes her fans respect her decision to not hug her during meet and greets. Walker hopes her fans understand that she still loves and appreciates them.

I just want to say to all the fans who purchase meet & greets I really APPRECIATE y’all taking the extra time to meet me and share your stories. I tell everyone individually “thank you”, I spread love, we laugh & I give genuine compliments🖤 now for those who’re upset b/c I don’t give hugs idk what to tell you…I’m an empath, and that transference of energy from that many people each day would literally KILL me.. y’all may not understand what I’m talking about but for example… there’s a lot of people out here faking the funk with a smile on their face like they got it together but inside your actually suffering from some sort of traumatic experience, a loss, depressed, fearful, envious or whatever the case may be BUT I CAN FEEL IT. So I ask you please respect my space in those moments 🖤
