Look, I’m not a huge country fan and even I love me some Luke Bryan. But the country singer, who’s known for being a lover not a fighter, took things to a violent level during his Nashville concert on Wednesday night.
The incident happened during a performance of his song “Move” at the Charlie Daniels’ All-Star Volunteer Jam, a concert and charity event to raise money for veterans. While Bryan was singing, a man in the front row was throwing him the middle finger and, according to People, taunting Bryan as well.
Without even pausing in his song, Bryan simply stepped off stage, slapped the man, went back on stage and continued his performance.
An onlooker caught the whole thing on tape.
Bryan’s rep responded to the incident, and from the sound of it, Bryan isn’t sorry.
“A man in [the] front row was making crude hand gestures toward Luke during his performance,” the rep explained. “It was insulting not only to him, but more importantly to the men, women and families sitting around him who were there to support and celebrate Charlie Daniels and the efforts of raising money for the military veterans — some of who were in the audience.”
Personally, I’m a big fan of the “violence is never the answer” motto, but in this case, fans are applauding Bryan for putting this heckler in his place.

Do you think Luke Bryan was in the right to hit the guy or should he have simply asked security to escort the man out of the concert?
