Luke Bryan smacked a fan during a concert in Nashville on Wednesday, Nov. 30 after the man flipped him off during the performance.
Video of the incident, which occurred during Charlie Daniels' all-star Volunteer Jam, shows the country music superstar singing his current hit "Move" while walking around the stage. A man in a t-shirt and baseball cap can be seen in full view giving Luke the ole one-finger salute.
During a small break in the song, Luke can be seen coming down slightly off the stage and giving the man a wallop on the side of the head. He then jumped back on stage and continued singing his song.
Security can be seen approaching the man after the incident.
Just before the slap, Luke can be heard getting a little testy, telling the fan to "come on."
Rolling Stone reported that Luke was being harassed all night with one fan even making a sign that mocked him for wearing tight jeans, as he is known to do.
A statement from Luke's team addressed the mid-song incident.
"A man in [the] front row was making crude hand gestures toward Luke during his performance," the statement, released to Rolling Stone Country, said. "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."
Luke, known as one of the nicer guys in the business, hasn't personally addressed the incident.
