Country singer Luke Bryan slaps ‘insulting’ audience member during concert

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Luke Bryan bent down and slapped a man in the face while performing his single “Move” at the Charlie Daniels’ all-star Volunteer Jam in Nashville on Wednesday.

According to the RollingStone, at least two men were heckling Bryan during his performance. In the video, you can hear the singer clearly say “come on” before slapping him.

After the incident, Bryan continued to sing as if he hadn’t just hit someone.

Security personnel quickly arrived to remove the audience member and the show continued.

Luke Bryan’s publicist released a statement regarding the incident:

A man in [the] front row was making crude hand gestures toward Luke during his performance. It was insulting not only to him, but more importantly to the men, women and families sitting around him who were there to support and celebrate Charlie Daniels and the efforts of raising money for the military veterans – some of who were in the audience. The concert security personnel saw the man’s disruptive actions of the event and he was escorted out.
