In a perfect world, fans and artists would be able to interact respectfully, and both walk away safely with a few pictures and an autograph.
Unfortunately for both parties, often times interactions with fans can be dangerous. There have been countless horror stories of fan meets going awry.
DJ Soda is the latest artist to have been put in a dangerous situation due to a fan as the DJ revealed that she suffered injuries from a glass cup thrown at her.
On August 3, DJ Soda released CCTV footage of a male throwing something in the direction of the DJ.
The DJ reported she suffered injuries from the glass splinters while also stating that she was in shock.
When I was leaving DJ booth after show today, a guy threw a glass cup to the direction of me leaving and the pieces of broken glasses were splashed to my legs (sic).
So I’ve got a splinter of glass on my right ankle and I’m really in shock with this situation. (sic)

The DJ then warned her fans that she wouldn’t tolerate incidents like this anymore.
I really love seeing my fans close to interact more, but if this kind of incidents happen, I can’t come out to see you guys close anymore.
Please keep your etiquette and manners. (sic)
