Swae Lee Gets Stitches After Being Hit in the Face by Fan's Phone Onstage
A new trend sees fans throwing their phones at artists onstage in hopes of them taking an epic selfie with it. That's what one woman had in mind as she chucked her device at Swae Lee on Sunday night, but he didn't see it coming and the cell phone ended up busting the 23-year-old's lip, making for a bloody scene on the Starplex Pavilion stage in Dallas.
The unfortunate accident took place toward the end of Rae Sremmurd's set, as the pair moved into their Juicy J-assisted smash "Powerglide." "I swear to god I'm going to sue your ass. You just busted my tooth, bitch. Why are you throwing shit on the stage? You're throwing that shit like a baseball and I'm trying to put on a show for y'all," said a bloodied Swae Lee.
After multiple attempts by Slim Jxmmi to restrain his brother, the pair cooled off and finished up their rock star performance. Swae later confirmed that he indeed received stitches for the wound and has backed off his threats by deciding not to sue the fan for her transgression. He is also expected to continue his role on the Dazed & Blazed Tour as planned.
"Just got stitches in my lip and bought some finding Neeemo bandades and Star Wars bandades the tour continues," he wrote to Twitter following the performance. "And I won’t be suing the fan, imma charge it to the game just be more careful. I’m here to perform not [play] dodgeball."
