Steve Lacy has a bad habitand does not destroy other people’s property.
The rising star had a moment on stage Monday night (October 24) in New Orleans when he knocked over an audience member’s disposable camera during a performance of his smash hit “Bad Habit”.
In fan-filmed footage doing the rounds on social media, Lacy is hit by a camera, thrown by someone near the front of the stage.
A moment later, an outreach hand passes Lacy a disposable camera – it is not clear if it is the same object that hit the singer – which he promptly breaks.
Shortly after, Lacy is said to have wrapped his show early at the Orpheum Theatre.
Social media users have weighed in, some in support of the 24-year-old singer and his dramatic departure, others claiming he overreacted.
Now, Lacy has shared his thoughts. In short, he has nothing to apologize for.
Writing on Instagram, Lacy says, “My shows have been fun as hell! shout out to the people not throwing disposable cameras at me and just coming to capture a mood and connect. I had a very good time in nola last night. I hate that the beauty of the connection I have with so many people in the crowd is lost when something negative happens.”
He adds, “I don’t think I owe anyone an apology – maybe I could have responded better? Sure. Everytime. I am a student of life. But I’m a real person with real feelings and real reactions.”
Throwing throws at performing artists rarely ends well. “I’m not a product or a robot. I’m human,” Lacy continued. “I will continue to give my all in these shows. come with respect for ourselves and others, thank you very much.”
Lacy was promoted to the big league with “Bad Habit,” which spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart earlier this year.
Taken from the top 10 albums Gemini Rights, “Bad Habit” achieved another milestone by becoming the first song ever to reach the top at the same time Notice board‘s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs, Hot R&B songs, Hot Rock and Alternative Songs, Hot Rock Songs a Hot Alternative Songs charts.
