Dear Jonathan McReynolds,

First off,  I like to say that I've loved your music for about 4-5 years, I've purchased all of your albums. And I never really been too interested in following the day-to-day lives of artists on social media. It's usually when an Album, Mixtape or Music Video is due for release is when I start monitoring their feeds for the latest updates. Which brings me to the tweet that you posted on your page which can be seen above.

I must say that I was very disappointed in the attitude that you displayed on twitter. Didn't you just chastise Jason Warrior for his behavior on The Four just awhile ago? You could have handled your own situation alot better by simply ignoring it. You need to realize that you are a signed recording star with one of the most recognizable 'voices' in Christian music and you must conduct yourself with 'class' at all times. That includes not lashing at in anger over something as petty as an instagram tag. (By the way... I searched endlessly for the 'tag' the apparently ticked you off, and I couldn't find a trace of anything negative). So were you trying to drum up controversy just to sale records? An Marketing ploy? Regardless, I feel like you owe your fans an apology.

You had thousands of fans (including me) thinking that we did something wrong..... I had to search through my own tweets just to see if I could have possibly said something to offend you. But then I realized that it's not me, IT'S YOU.

We all have our bad days where you feel like everything irritates you. But sometimes it's just best to log-off and relax. Nobody is trying to 'break your spirit' simply from tagging you in a instagram or twitter post. Maybe it was distasteful post, maybe it wasn't. We will never know because you never provided us with more information.

Since the incident I had to question rather or not I should cancel my pre-order to your album. Why? Well I hold you to an higher standard than I do for most artists. I have seen non-christian artists conduct themselves on social media alot better, which disappointed me. But I do forgive you Jonathan.. But try to conduct yourself in a more dignified manner. Don't let your personality overshadow your gift.

P.S. Tip: You can disable tags & comments on instagram and turn off notifications on Twitter. Problem solved.
