Steve Lacy has responded to footage of him smashing a fan's disposable camera after being hit with the object during his New Orleans show, saying he's "a real person with real feelings and real reactions."

On Monday (24 October) Lacy played New Orleans' Orpheum Theater, and during his show he was hit with an object that appeared to be a disposable camera belonging to a fan in the crowd. After stopping the song to ask people not to throw stuff on the stage, Lacy then threw the object, and he's since addressed the situation on Instagram.

Lacy wrote on Instagram, "My shows been fun as hell! Shoutout to the people not throwing disposable cameras at me and just coming to catch a vibe and connect :) I had a really good time in Nola last night. I hate that the beauty of the connection i have with so many people in the crowd gets lost when something negative happens. I don’t believe I owe anyone an apology - maybe i could've reacted better? Sure. Always. I’m a student of life. But i’m a real person with real feelings and real reactions. I’m not a product or a robot. I am human. I will continue to give my all at these shows. Please come with respect for urself and others please thank you love u."

Last month Wet Leg covered Steve Lacy's "Bad Habit".

Steve Lacy's latest album Gemini Rights arrived in July.
