Post Malone responds to fans' concerns after video emerges on social media
The rapper Post Malone has responded to fan concerns about his general wellbeing, after a video that appears to show him stumbling around the stage at one of his performances emerged on social media.
The footage shows the 24-year-old musician losing his footing and falling to his knees, before being left to stumble and crawl around the stage. Many fans were concerned that Post's behavior was down to either drug or alcohol abuse.Take a look at the video that left the rapper's fans so worried in the first place:
For instance, one Twitter-user commented: "You can’t sit there and tell me that this is normal behavior from Post, it’s not and the man needs help before something bad happens to him. Whether it’s alcohol or drugs, he’s not using them for fun anymore, he’s abusing them. it’s too much now, people are worried. [sic]"
However, at a recent performance on his Runaway tour, at the FedExForum in Memphis in Tennessee on Friday, Post was quick to clear up the fact that he wasn't overdoing it and was feeling just fine, thank you very much.
Speaking to the crowd, Post stated: "I'm not on drugs! I feel the best I've ever f***ing felt in my life. And that's why I can bust my ass for these shows and f***ing fall on the floor and do all that fun s**t."
However, he also thanked his fans for looking out for his mental health, and added: "For anyone that's concerned here, I appreciate the love and the support, but I feel f***ing fantastic and I'm not doing drugs."
Indeed, Post might be feeling a lot better (and more generous) than most of us have hitherto given him credit for. For instance, he was recently seen handing out a whopping $50,000 in cash to crowds while partying at a nightclub.
