Joey Bada$$ cancels three upcoming shows.
For weeks now, scientist’s have advised everyone to wear protective glasses while they are watching the solar eclipse to prevent loss of vision. Despite their warnings, Joey Bada$$ decided to take the rebellious route and watch the solar eclipse without any protective eyewear.
In a series of now deleted tweets, Bada$$ wrote, “Am I crazy for watching the eclipse today w no glasses? I’ve sungazed before and afterwards saw colors for a whole day. I didn’t die tho. This ain’t the first solar eclipse and I’m pretty sure our ancestors ain’t have no fancy eyewear. Also pretty sure they ain’t all go blind.”
Ironically enough, less than 24 hours later, Bada$$ hopped back onto Twitter to tell his fans that he would be canceling three upcoming shows on Logic’s Everybody’s tour, “Due to unforeseen circumstances, my Cleveland, Chicago & Toronto shows on the #EverybodyTour are cancelled.”
Joey didn’t provide an explanation for the cancellation, but fans are speculating that he may have injured his eyes from watching the eclipse. However, the “Front & Center” rapper posted a photo of himself on his Instagram wearing protective glasses, the caption of the photo read, “solo eclipse.”
Joey’s reps have yet to release a statement on the cancellation.
