This fan commented how disappointed she is in the men that heckled her in Austin, hoping it doesn't reflect on her more well-behaved, respectful fans in that city.

I love how this person specified she's disappointed in the "trash" men of Austin, instead of generalizing the whole gender — how thoughtful.

Magge Rogers really is a woke queen. Take notes, people!
