Incident at a recent Brad Paisley concert?
Brad Paisley was in San Diego recently for a show and now a woman claims that was was 'kicked out' for the show for breastfeeding, an alligation that both local police and Brad strongly disagree to.
Megan Christopherson was in the pit area of the show back on July 10th along with her 4 month old child! She was then approached by some of Chula Vista's finest and of course people around her had their cameras out, and video was captured where you could hear the police instructing her to either sit in the seats they reserved for her or leave the concert. According to the officers, they were simply worried about the well being of the child, as she was so close to the speakers.
Brad maintains that the police offiers did the right thing. “It seemed to me … it sure seemed that she did the absolute wrong thing.” the country star says. “She’s probably picked the wrong fight.”
Brad, who didn't see the confrontation, reiterates that he had "nothing to do with it!" Even though he nor his people were directly involved in this incident, he did look into the incident and said “From what I was told by the authorities, according to the police it had nothing to do with breastfeeding at all,” he says adamantly, adding, “Nothing.”
The YouTube video which was posted, and Brad saw, has since been taken down. Brad said, “it didn’t look like they were mean.” In the clip, police are overheard saying, “Your child doesn’t have hearing protection on. The crowd is going to start surging forward. Where you’re at, your child can get crushed.”
“There’s no way I would take a 6-month-old — or however old the baby is — into the pit at one of my concerts,” the singer explains. “When my kids go to concerts — and believe it or not, they were there at that one, and they rarely go — they look like Princess Leia, they have these huge earphones. And they’re back at the soundboard. Because even back there it’s 100 decibels.”
Brad does believe that the lady in question is at fault and also hopes that she will take this as a learning experience.
“People are crazy, they do some crazy things and make some bad decisions,” the ‘River Bank singer says. “And that was in every way a bad decision. And I wish she would just learn from this as opposed to pretending to be a victim.”
