Phoebe Bridgers is getting candid about the price of fame.

The Kyoto singer recently recalled an upsetting airport encounter with a group of supposed fans days following her dad's death in January, noting it occurred as she was traveling to his wake.

"I'm coming from a place of literally -- I'm feeling it in my body as I'm saying it, but -- people with my picture as their Twitter picture, who claim to like my music, f--king bullied me at the airport," Phoebe told Them in an interview published March 29, "on the way to my father's funeral this year."

The 28-year-old added, "If you're a kid and the internet somehow taught you that that's an okay thing to do, then of course I hate capitalism and everything that led you to believe that it's okay to do that."

While Phoebe hasn't spoken a lot about her father's passing, she explained that she was "at one of the lowest points of my life," when she "saw people who claim to love me f--king dehumanize me and shame me and f--king bully me on the way to my dad's wake."
