Bad Bunny Responds After Throwing Fan’s Phone: ‘It’s a Disrespect’
The mishap took place in The Dominican Republic during holidays.
Bad Bunny kicked off 2023 defending himself on Twitter after a mishap with a fan went viral on social media.
In a recent video that began circulating the Internet, the superstar Puerto Rican artist is seen walking with his group of friends and team when an excited fan approached him with her phone and began recording in selfie mode. A few seconds later, an annoyed Bunny grabbed her phone and threw the device in the bushes. Someone from the crew said, “You have to respect him space.”
The fan encounter took place in Dominican Republic, where artist was on holiday. The “Titi Me Pregunto” singer took to Twitter Monday, Jan. 2, to voice his opinion.
He wrote, “The person who comes to me to say hello to me, to tell me anything, or just to meet with me, will always get my attention and respect.” “Those who come to me to put a freaking cellphone in my face, I will consider it for the what it is, a disgrace, and I will treat them as such.”
The Bad Bunny fandom is expressing mixed feelings about his actions.
“Let’s normalize the fact that artists are human beings and deserve to be treated with respect always,” tweeted one fan. “You are the number 1 artist in the world, and you don’t want people to take a picture of you?” Get your feet on the ground,” said another.
The incident comes just days after the reggaeton artist was spotted handing out toys to children in Puerto Rico as part of his “Bonita Tradicion” event held by his Good Bunny Foundation, and later offered an impromptu concert on top of a gas station alongside urbano veteran Arcangel and newcomer Yovngchimi.
