This offending YouTuber, Jordan Matter, immediately removed the video featuring the grey-sock adorned imitator following Eilish's request.

Thanks to Billie's aesthetic, it's now become extremely popular for YouTubers to dress up as her and prank people in public by pretending to be her and filming it in an attempt to create viral videos. In addition to it being risky, it's downright disrespectful - especially if they're not going to complete the look with the pop star's favorite Gucci sneakers. "It is not safe for you and it is mean to people who don't know any better. you make me look bad", while sharing a screen shot of the impersonator.

Another video with five million views, shows a YouTuber showing off how they transformed themselves into the artist and going to the mall with pretend security.

"Additionally soooo disrespectful that you just'd exit pretending to be me carrying this."

On Thursday, Eilish - who boasts 89M social media followers - viciously blasted all of her "disrespectful" and tacky impersonators via Insta-story.

This was not the first time YouTubers have turned to stunts with Eilish impersonators for video content.

Ariana Grande reacts to Paige Neimann's impersonating videos.

"Hello everyone. You have been commenting on the video session I did yesterday, and I would like to respond", he wrote in the caption. Speaking against that, she told fans that "please stop doing this".

Highlighting one "fake Billie", she urged: "Please stop doing this s***". I am a huge fan, like everybody else. Several YouTube videos claim that, after being spotted in public, the Grammy-winner was rude and unresponsive to fans.

"When I heard the name over a year ago, I thought it was Billie Irish and it was a standup comedian from there", seat-filler Terry George said. "I contacted directly Billie and [his mom] Maggie and I apologized, and I will not publish the video without their permission", jordan wrote, with a photo of the waterfall.
