The comment from d.dub7 about Mariah's performance read: "Ever seen an accident you couldn't take your eyes away from? That was her tonight!"
After Lopez liked the comment, the Internet was quick to take notice. Screenshots were taken, and now the moment is forever immortalized in social media history.
"She was not 'winging' this moment and took it very seriously," Nicole Perna of BWR-PR said while speaking with Billboard. "A shame that production set her up to fail. They told her it would be fine once she was onstage."
Perna continued by saying: "However, that was not the case and they were again told that her ear piece was not working. Instead of endeavoring to fix the issue so that Mariah could perform, they went live."
Stella Bulochnikov, Mariah's manager, also spoke out about the issue.
"I will never know the truth, but I do know that we told them three times that her mic pack was not working and it was a disastrous production," Bulochnikov said while talking to Us Weekly. "I'm certainly not calling the FBI to investigate. It is what it is: New Year's Eve in Times Square. Mariah did them a favor. She was the biggest star there and they did not have their s--t together."
