FIDLAR Frontman Knocks A Fan’s Phone Out Their Hand As They Try To Take An Onstage Selfie

Zac Carper of FIDLAR wasn’t best pleased when a fan tried to take an onstage selfie as he was performing.

First it was Judas Priest’s Rob Halford, and now FIDLAR have hit headlines (and the front page of Reddit, no less) for having to stop fans from getting their phones in their faces at shows.

In this instance, as the band performed at the Cornerstone Brewery in Berkley, frontman Zac Carper bashed the fan’s phone as they attempted twice to take an onstage selfie while he was in the middle of performing. Happily it’s all good between the group and fan in question, with FIDLAR later posting on Reddit of the incident:

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 I’m 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.

It’s all good though. She laughed and she actually got her phone back after the show. Not broken or anything. Boom.”
