At a concert on Feb. 17, singer Aaron Carter, 29, was attacked, according to a report by TMZ. The show in Bradley, Illinois became the site of a disturbance after Carter allegedly made a racial slur. The attacker was a member of the opening band for Carter’s show, ILL State.

TMZ reported that while at the venue the Loony Bin, one of the opening band’s members caused somewhat of a disturbance by taking people’s cellphones, recording video, and “goofing.” TMZ had it from an eyewitness that Carter asked security to see the disruptive band member out.

A video posted on the site shows security removing the man, and Carter calls “Bye Felipe.” This was apparently a play on the memetic “Bye Felicia” made famous by Ice Cube. According to the report, the man came back inside and attacked Carter, and a speaker and computer were broken.

After the attack, Carter reportedly went to a hospital, and police are now conducting an investigation, according to Us Weekly, and according to Carter on Twitter.

Carter assured fans that he was all right and added a picture with his dogs, assuring fans that his face had not been damaged. He said “Chillen w my boys before I finally get to bed… hospitals suck. & so do bullies. My face is still pretty though and untouched.”

Carter also tweeted on Saturday to explain the incident. He said, “This dude sized me up after I said he had to go and said bye Felipe like by Felicia the male version.” Carter also made a comment about a “fake security guard causing liability to the venue.”

 

The singer, who is the younger brother of Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter, also tweeted on Saturday to thank fans “who know what’s up and support me,” saying that there were people who want to see him fail (he did not clarify who). He has since continued to tweet about the incident.

 

I'm a lover of words in all forms, sweatshirts in all conditions, and God in all circumstances. I particularly enjoy working collaboratively on the written word and wearing microfiber robes (preferably at the same time). Most of the time I don't get enough sleep, but I make a valiant effort.
