It seems pretty obvious, but do not try to take a selfie with Zac Karper, frontman of California rock band Fidlar, while he’s onstage in the middle of a song!
The band was playing at Cornerstone Brewery in Berkeley when a fan stepped onstage to take a selfie with them. Karper pushed the fan out of the way to make it clear he was not interested in taking the picture, but when the fan continued to attempt the selfie, he hit the phone out of their hands, causing it to fly across the room.
After seeing himself on the front page of Reddit, Karper went in the thread to explain his phone-slap:
This is what happened. We were playing at Cornerstone Brewery in Berkley. We went to Taco Bell Cantina before that and had Crunchwrap Supremes with beers. Was a very special bonding experience.
This kind of stuff happens to us all the time. We encourage stage diving and moshing and all that good stuff. BUT this is where I draw the line. No selfies WHILE im performing. Sorry brah. A big ole nope to that. I kindly pushed her out of the way the first time to let her know I am not down, so my instinctive reaction was to get that phone out of my face.
Its all good tho. She laughed and she actually got her phone back after the show. not broken or anything. Boom.
