Addressing the recent spate of people throwing objects at performers on stage, Adele said: “I f—ing dare you. Dare throw anything at me and I’ll fucking kill you.”

During a recent Weekends With Adele show, the singer called out on recent events disturbing Trend of people throwing objects at artists on stage. Artists like Bebe Rexha, Ava Max and Kelsea Ballerini have themselves been hit by objects or fans during recent performances.

“Have you noticed how people are forgetting about show etiquette at the moment? People just throw shit on stage; have you seen her?” Adele asked the audience during her stay in Las Vegas with the sass of a stand-up comedian while brandishing her t-shirt gun.

“I can’t trust you. You dare throw anything at me and I’ll fucking kill you,” Adele joked in a fan-captured video. “Stop throwing things at the artist when you can shoot things at people,” she added, referring to her t-shirt gun. “I saw these people – these people lost their composure, can you imagine that?”

Several artists were unfortunately victims of an attack on stage. At a concert in New York City in June, Bebe Rexha was hit in the face by a phone and fell off the stage, suffering a black eye and a laceration above her eyebrow. The man, whom the NYPD identified as “a 27-year-old man” who deliberately threw the phone at Rexha, was later arrested and charged with assault.

The following day, Ava Max was slapped by a concert-goer who rushed onto the stage during her show in Los Angeles. “He hit me so hard he scratched the inside of my eye. He’ll never come to a show again,” Max tweeted about the incident.

Most recently, Kelsea Ballerini was hit by an object in Idaho. “If you ever feel unsafe, please let someone close to you know,” Ballerini said onstage after the incident. “If someone is pushing too much or you just have a gut feeling, just always report it. Don’t throw things, you know?”
