Post Malone has responded to fans’ recent concern over his health after videos of the rapper exhibiting some “weird” behaviors during several stops on his “Runway” tour emerged online.
The rapper who is currently on the second leg of his “Runaway” tour, recently sparked worry after footage emerged of him stumbling, slurring his words and rolling his eyes back whilst performing. In response, many fans took to social media to question Post Malone’s health.
Post addressed the rumors at his show on FedExForum in Memphis, Tennessee on Friday night. “I’m not on drugs! I feel the best I’ve ever fucking felt in my life,” he told the audience. “And that’s why I can bust my ass for these shows and fucking fall on the floor and do all that fun shit. But for anyone that’s concerned here, I appreciate the love and the support, but I feel fucking fantastic and I’m not doing drugs.” Watch his statement below.
Before Post dispelled the rumors, fans were creating their own narratives about his health after the concerning videos began to circulate online. One fan wrote on Twitter, “Okay I’m concerned for Post Malone’s health now. This shit is scary. I saw him in November and he wasn’t like this at all man.”
“Guys please, Post Malone has been acting ‘weird’ on stage since a few weeks,” another tweeted yesterday. “I’m not trying to assume anything, but he looks like he’s under drugs. So please, SPREAD THIS VIDEO. We lost too many artists over overdoses. I hope he’s gonna be okay.” Check out some fans’ reactions below.
