Concerts and festivals are for us to come together to have a good time and enjoy music from our favorite artists, not to throw items at them on stage and potentially harm them.

Over the summer, Drake’s poetry book: “Titles Ruin Everything” was thrown at him during his show in San Francisco.

Cardi B had a drink thrown at her during a performance in Las Vegas. Latto had an object thrown at her during her set at Rolling Loud Germany, and Sexxy Red cut her performance short at the independent hip-hop festival Lyrical Lemonade Summer Smash after people threw things at her on stage.

If it’s not a part of the show, we shouldn’t throw things on stage.

Celebrity bodyguard and founder and CEO of “Big Flexx Security,” Terrance Granger, shared his thoughts on the topic.
