On Oct. 21, during a performance of Steve Lacy’s “Bad Habit” in New Orleans, the chart-topping artist had a brief and straightforward response after being hit with a camera thrown on stage by a concert-goer.
Lacy paused his concert in fan videos shot from the balcony of the Orpheum Theater to admonish audience members not to “throw crap on my fucking stage.” Please!” Lacy looked to be strolling to the rear of the platform, only to turn around and ask someone in the front row for their camera.
After the fan agreed, the singer hurled the camera over the stage as the audience applauded and gasped. He closed the act as he walked off the stage, stating, “Yeah, that’s it. Peace.”
Despite being chopped short, “Bad Habit” is generally his set’s closing. He did not return to the stage following the confrontation and stayed silent on social media until Tuesday evening, when he commented on Instagram:
“Shoutout to the individuals who aren’t hurling throwaway cameras at me and are simply come to connect,” he wrote. “I had a great time in Nola last night.” I despise how the beauty of my connection with so many individuals in the audience is destroyed when anything terrible occurs.”
“I don’t believe I owe anyone an apology,” he added. “Maybe I could’ve reacted better? Sure. Always. I’m a student of life. But I’m a real person with real feelings and real reactions. I’m not a product or a robot. I am human. I will continue to give my all at these shows. Please come with respect for urself and others please thank you love u.”
