Bad Bunny takes fan's phone and throws it away after she got in his personal space

Bad Bunny takes fan's phone and throws it away after she got in his personal space

The singer says he won't tolerate people being disrespectful 'and I will treat it likewise'.

Bad Bunny has hit back at a fan who he claims got into his personal space without respect and consent.

Footage of the singer walking down the street has gone viral and it shows a woman in front of him trying to get a selfie.

While initially he's seen to be smiling for the camera, Bad Bunny, whose real name is Benito Antonio Martínez Ocasio, eventually picked up the lady's phone and tossed it away.

You can see the shocked look on the fan's face as she comes to grips with what just happened.

She wasn't the only person trying to take a snap of the Puerto Rican singer, however she was the one who was closest.

Bunny has since taken to Twitter to explain himself.

He wrote (which has been translated from Spanish): "The person who comes up to me to say hello, to tell me something, or just to meet me, will always receive my attention and respect.

"Those who come to put a phone b****d in my face I will consider it for what it is, a lack of respect and I will treat it likewise."

However, he's copped some criticism on social media for throwing the woman's phone away.

One person wrote: "Why didn't he asked her to not film him? There's no excuse to him took her cellphone and broke it. If it was a man I doubt he would do that."

Another added: "She behaved with the other fan and that she damaged her cell phone without even thinking about the economic situation the girl is in, take off the blindfold and stop trying to justify it."

A third said: "Benito, I love you and I'm always a fan of you, but throwing your cell phone at him like that is going too far, I think, I give you the reason that if we see someone famous we should arrive politely and respectfully and kindly ask for a photo, but perhaps you would have pushed it away or something like that."

Celebrities are regularly get bombarded by fans trying to take selfies without much regard with the impact it might have on the A-lister.

Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has famously said she won't take photos with supporters when she's in the street after suffering a confronting incident.

She told Jessie Ware on an episode of the Table Manners podcast: "I was genuinely walking through an airport and I suddenly started having what I can only believe to be a panic attack brought on by complete exhaustion.

“I was on my own. I was on the phone to my mom saying, ‘I feel like I can’t breathe. I don’t know what’s going on.’"

Clarke then revealed: "I’m there and the tears are coming out. I’m crying and crying, this guy’s like, ‘Can I get a selfie?’

"And I was like, ‘I can’t breathe, I’m really sorry. Just having a minute.’ It was after a few moments like that where I was like, ‘I don’t know how to do this."

So now, the TV star prefers to sign things instead of take pictures.
