Actress Tells Piano Player To 'Shut Up' During The Golden Globes

Actress Michelle Yeoh didn't seem too happy with the event's piano player Tuesday night.

During awards shows, it's standard to have some kind of music playing to signal to winners during their speeches that it's time to wrap it up.

It's a television event at the end of the day. There's a schedule to keep.

However, Michelle Yeoh apparently didn't get the memo or thought the rules didn't apply to her. While giving a speech for her win of Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy for "Everything Everywhere All at Once," the piano started playing, and her reaction was a bit much.

Yeoh told the piano player to "shut up please" in a very cringe moment where she also tried to play it off as a joke.

Was this necessary from Michelle Yeoh?

This is one of those big yikes moments we see from famous and entitled people from time to time. Of course, it's not her fault for going too long.

It must be the piano player's fault for doing their job to keep the show moving along. Remember, rich celebrities are never responsible for something going wrong.

Someone else is always responsible.

Also, the fawning on social media over this is pathetic. People are celebrating her like she just cured cancer or won March Madness.

There's a lot of "what a queen!" energy going around, and it's just bizarre. Is being rude now something we applaud?

Remember, folks, Hollywood isn't real life and most of the people there aren't impressive. It's all smoke and mirrors. A facade. This attitude, even if played off as a joke, is rampant. It's just a shame to see. Fortunately, if you want to enjoy entertainment without this kind of attitude, we have you covered here at OutKick!
