Country star Luke Bryan was giving a benefit concert for military veterans in Nashville, Tennessee. He was singing “Move”, one of his hits, when he spotted a man in the front row raising his middle finger at him.
A video showed Bryan stepping down and grabbing the man’s right hand while punching him in the face. He then finished the song and the fan was removed by security.
“A man in front row was making crude hand gestures toward Luke during his performance,” his rep said in a statement. “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.”
