Shortly after, Lacy reportedly ended his show early at the Orpheum Theater.

Social media users weighed in, some in support of the 24-year-old singer and his dramatic departure, others claiming he overreacted.

Now Lacy has shared his thoughts. In short, he has nothing to apologize for.

Writing on Instagram, Lacy says: “My shows were fun! Shoutout to the people who don’t throw disposable cameras at me and just come to catch a vibe and connect. I had a great time in Nola last night. I hate that the beauty of the connection I have with so many people in the crowd is lost if something negative happens.”

He adds, “I don’t believe I owe anyone an apology – maybe I could have reacted better? Certainly. Always. I am a student of life. But I am a real person with real feelings and real reactions.”

Throwing projectiles at performers rarely ends well. “I am not a product or a robot. I’m human,” Lacy continued. “I will continue to give my all at these shows. please come with respect for yourself and others, thank you, love you.”

Lacy was elevated to the big leagues with “Bad Habit,” which spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart earlier this year.

Lifted from the top 10 album twin rights, “Bad Habit” hit another milestone by becoming the first song ever to top it at the same time Billboardsay Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, Hot R&B songs, Hot rock and alternative songs, Hot Rock Songs and Hot alternative songs cards.
