Drake joins a growing list of artists who have been targeted by fans throwing objects on stage. These include Bebe Rexha, Pink, Kid Cudi, Steve Lacy, Kelsea Ballerini, and Ava Max (who was physically assaulted by a fan who rushed on the stage). The “Hello” singer Adele had a very strong reaction to this trend (and understandably so) and recently warned her audience from the stage that she would fight anyone who threw anything at her. “Have you noticed how people are like, forgetting show etiquette at the moment? People just throwing sh*t onstage, have you seen them? I f*cking dare you. Dare you to throw something at me and I’ll f*cking kill you.”

Bebe Rexha suffered the most serious injury, after a phone was thrown at her near her eye, causing her to collapse on stage. A 27-year-old man was arrested in connection with the incident. Kelsea Ballerini stopped her show in Idaho to address her audience after an object was thrown. “Can we just talk about what happened?” the singer asked. “All I care about is keeping everyone safe. If you ever don’t feel safe, please let someone around you know. If anyone’s pushing too much or you just have that gut feeling, just always flag it. … Don’t throw things, you know?”
