Would you say that to Ryan Adams’ face?

Because if not you might want to think twice about any Twitter shade you throw the singer’s way after last night’s cancelled SXSW ACL Live performance. According to SXSW, the singer was forced to cancel his show due to illness.

But according to many a Twitter user, Adams is rude.

Today the singer took to Twitter to essentially appear on his own “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” bit, to both thank users for the well wishes (sarcastically?), and put a few #meantweeters on blast with hashtag #TOPMEANTWEETS. He also sarcastically apologized for not better planning his laryngitis and upper respiratory infection.

Austin, @sxsw Thank you for all the kindness & well wishes. I'm so sorry I couldn't play.
Please enjoy the #TOPMEANTWEETS I love you cats pic.twitter.com/bP7E3TTNXw

Musicians, Abigail wants you to know … If you succumb to laryngitis & upper respiratory infection it's "not cool" pic.twitter.com/AEZzrKZ7CZ

Funny thing about being sick is sometimes you just get sicker. I lost my voice.
