Concert Experience for Aaron Carter Should Concern Central New Yorkers
After Aaron Carter performed a show in Syracuse last week, he was admitted to the hospital. But Central New York concert-goers should be concerned for another reason.
No, we're not talking about a health concern, or anything that would make anyone who was at the show have to go to the hospital. Some concert-goers' behavior is what we should be worried about. Whether you're a fan of Aaron Carter or not, this is definitely something that needs to be addressed.
It looks like some audience members were not gracious fans to the singer. According to Syracuse.com,
"I'm entirely hurt by a so-called fan that I just encountered she wasn't realizing I was listening, she said I look like I have cancer," [Aaron] wrote on Twitter. "This is body shaming. You guys are bullying me...
Whether you think he has a right to be upset, or if you think this is bullying or not, this incident could cause some issues for the Central New York area.
We need to be supportive and humble fans when we have artists and performers in the area. Yes, you're entitled to your opinion, but we still should be careful. Think about all the artists that are connected to Aaron Carter, his mangers and reps, and anyone else in the entertainment business that he could have a "chat" with. What if he mentions his experiences in Syracuse, and it gives us all a bad rep? It may make other artists and bands a little leery to perform in our area.
As for Aaron Carter's hospitalization, it isn't something to be concerned about. He was admitted to the hospital for exhaustion, but has since been released. His girlfriend however, is a little more worried about the situation. She tweeted out that they need to take a little break after all these shows.
And for Carter's experience in Central New York? Even after the mean comments and the hospitalization, it looks like he isn't holding too big of a grudge. According to Syracuse.com,
Carter suggested he wasn't angry in a final note to fans.
"To all those who project negativity, speak cruel words to hurt others. I send you love & forgiveness. Know that all gods children are beautiful, Tall, short thick or thin," he added on Twitter.
Hopefully this incident doesn't make other celebrities and artists hesitant about coming to upstate and Central New York. Otherwise, we could be in a little bit of trouble when it comes to next year's summer concert season.
