During the pre-show, Zara Larsson was communicating with concertgoers through a global chat system. While talking about rhubarbs, she casually dropped an f-bomb. It went unfiltered in the global chat. As swearing is against the Roblox Terms of Service, this came as a shock to many viewers. After swearing for a second time in chat, Larsson apologized. She stated that she was unaware her messages were not subjected to the filter. This led others to point out the inconsistencies and inconveniences regarding Roblox moderation.
The so-called "Rhubarb incident" immediately became sensationalized and was subjected to jokes from the Roblox community, arguably overshadowing the musical performances themselves as the defining highlight of the show. Larsson then went on to poke fun at the moment; retweeting Bloxy News' post and eventually posting a photo of herself to Twitter and Instagram while referencing rhubarbs. For her return to Roblox that November, Larsson published multiple accessories for the Avatar Shop, which included the Rhubarb Peacock.

- There are several pigs wandering around the buildings throughout the map. This is because Zara Larsson's favorite animals are pigs.
- Interestingly, none of the songs from Poster Girl that were released as singles were performed for the concert.
