Vietnamese American singer-songwriter Keshi was left injured after a small object hit him in the face in Honolulu.
From water bottles to iPhones, touring artists unfortunately must be prepared to endure a barrage of objects hurled by fans desperate to make themselves noticed by their musical idols.
On Monday, Keshi was performing in Honolulu for the final stop of his “HEAVEN/HELL” tour when he was struck by something that caused him to stumble onstage and clutch his face.
The object, which was revealed to be a bracelet, left visible marks around Keshi’s left eye.
Even though the “like i need u” singer singled the fan out during his performance, Keshi took to Twitter to defuse tension between his fanbase and the rowdy concertgoer, writing, “we all make mistakes here and there.”
He also took the opportunity to speak out against the act of hurling objects at performers, pointing out that “performers aren’t circus animals” and that audience members should stop treating them as such by “throw[ing] sh*t at us.”
