Joey Bada$$ Cancels Shows After Tweeting About Watching The Eclipse
He says that the cancellations are due to "unforeseen circumstances."
After throwing a handful of tweets the Brooklyn rhymer Joey Bada$$, the people of the Hip Hop Heads of the board at Reddit have discovered that the musician cancelled three upcoming shows after bragging of looking at the solar eclipse without eye protection.
In the weeks that remain until Monday (August 21) solar eclipse, many warned of the harmful effects of sun-gazing without protection.
Joey reasoning to see the eclipse? If the ancestors did it, then he can also.
"I'm crazy for you see the eclipse today w without glasses? I have sungazed before and after saw the colors for a whole day. I didn't die tho...This is not the first solar eclipse, and I'm pretty sure our ancestors didn't have no fancy glasses. Also pretty sure that not all of them are going blind," Bada$$ he wrote in two tweets on Monday.
Only a day after the eclipse, on Tuesday (August 22), Joey cancelled his sets in the Logic of All the Tour in Cleveland, Chicago and Toronto.
"Due to unforeseen circumstances, my Cleveland, Chicago and Toronto, And is shown in the #EverybodyTour are cancelled," Joey twitter.
Although the rapper did tweet about looking at the sun during the eclipse, a photo went up on Instagram on Tuesday shows him using what appears to be a couple of glasses of eclipse.

The exact reason why Joey Badass " cancelled shows that still it has not been revealed, but if it was eclipse-related, it would not be the only person that had problems. Google searches for "my eyes hurt" spikes only after the event is over.
