Paul Wall regrets lashing out at a fan over the weekend during a show in San Antonio, Texas. In case you missed it, a widely circulated video of the incident shows the grill-loving rapper going after a fan at the Low Low Car Show last Sunday after the man repeatedly flipped the middle finger at Wall.
After exchanging a few heated words with the offender, Wall (born Paul Slayton) got fed up with the one-finger salute and hit the man on the head twice with a microphone before security removed the man from the venue, according to TMZ. A contrite Wall issued an apology for the incident on Tuesday, telling XXL magazine that he simply lost his cool and regrets his unprofessional behavior.
“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,” said Wall. “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.”
As of press time, no police report had been filed in the incident.
