Steve Lacy has a bad practiceand not destroying other people’s property.
The rising star had a moment on stage Monday night (October 24) in New Orleans when he dropped a viewer’s receiver camera while performing his hit “Bad Habit.”
In fan footage making the rounds on social media, Lacy is hit with a camera, thrown by someone near the front of the stage.
A moment later, an outside hand passes by Lacy’s disposable camera – it is not clear if it is the same thing that hit the singer – which he quickly breaks.
Soon after, Lacy reportedly ended his show early at the Orpheum Theater.
Social media users have weighed in, with some supporting the 24-year-old singer and his surprise departure, others saying he didn’t overreact.
Now, Lacy has shared his thoughts. In short, he has nothing to apologize for.
Writing on Instagram, Lacy said, “My shows were fun as hell! Shout out to the people for not throwing disposable cameras at me and just coming to capture the vibe and connection. I had a great time in Nola last night. I hate that the beauty of the connection I have with so many people in the crowd – gets lost when something negative happens.”
He said, “I don’t think I owe anyone an apology – maybe I could have handled it better? Yes. Always. I am a student of life. But I’m a real person with real feelings and real ideas.”
Throwing projectiles at performing artists rarely ends well. “I am not a product or a robot. I’m human,” Lacy continued. “I’ll continue to give my all at these shows. Please come with respect for yourself and others, thank you my love.”
Lacy was promoted to the big leagues with “Bad Habit,” which spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart earlier this year.
Taken from the top 10 chart Gemini Rights, “Bad Habit” achieved another milestone by becoming the first song ever to reach the top simultaneously Tableauand Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Free R&B songs, Hot rock and other songs, Hot rock songs and Hot Alternative songs records.
