After releasing a public apology to supporters for attacking a fan during a San Antonio concert last weekend, rapper Paul Wall has said he is not worried about the victim.
According to Wall, the man he attacked with a microphone did not represent his fan following.
Rapper Paul Wall is never ever going to apologize to the guy he blasted with a microphone this past weekend ... because according to Paul, "He ain't my fan. I'm not worried about him. We caught up with Paul in Calabasas yesterday, where he told us the reason he decked the bird-flipping concertgoer in San Antonio was because, "A**holes get outta line sometimes." (TMZ)
This week, Wall released a statement revealing his deepest regrets to fans.
"I want to sincerely apologize to my San Antonio Fans as well as Paul Wall Fans worldwide for allowing myself to become distracted during my recent performance at the Low Low Car Show in San Antonio, Texas," he said. "My goal as a live performer is to always provide my fans with a great show experience and I apologize for temporarily taking my eyes off that goal. We all learn from experiences both good and bad. I will learn and grow from this incident and be a better person, artist and performer as a result." (XXL Mag)
