Tell us how you really feel, Fifth Harmony. 

The girl group caused a stir on social media during Sunday’s MTV Music Video Awards when they kicked off their performance with a hooded fifth member literally jumping off the stage. The stunt appeared to be a not-so-veiled dig at ex-bandmate Camila Cabello, who left 5H late last year to pursue a solo career full time.

Camila’s name trended on Twitter throughout the night, with many people calling out 5H for the seemingly disrespectful dummy. 

5H previously took the high road when asked about Camilo’s exit earlier this month. 

“We’re so happy, and we moved forward, and we’re in a good place, and we hope she’s in a good place, and that’s really what matters,” member Lauren Jauregui told USA TODAY. “Everyone should just be in their own lane, do their own thing and stop worrying about everything else.”
