Joey Bada$$ Cancels Shows After Reportedly Looking at Eclipse Without Glasses [PHOTO]

On Monday (Aug. 21), all eyes were to the sky as stargazers watch the solar eclipse. Apparently, Joey Bada$$ was among those who wanted to witness this scientific event.

However, it looks as if the Pro Era leader didn’t wear any protective glasses needed to watch the solar eclipse. Scientists have warned weeks prior, that staring at the sun without protection could lead to blindness. However, the daring rapper purportedly felt bold enough to watch the eclipse without glasses because his ancestors did it.

“Am I crazy for watching the eclipse today w no glasses? I’ve sungazed before and afterwards saw colors for a whole day. I didn’t die tho,” he wrote in now-since deleted tweets. “This ain’t the first solar eclipse and I’m pretty sure our ancestors ain’t have no fancy eyewear. Also pretty sure they ain’t all go blind.”

Twenty-four hours later, Joey went on his Twitter account to announce that he wouldn’t be performing at three upcoming shows on Logic’s “Everybody Tour.” “Due to unforeseen circumstances, my Cleveland, Chicago & Toronto shows on the #EverybodyTour are cancelled,” he tweeted.

He gave no reason for the cancellation, but many fans are speculating that Joey may have injured his eyes from watching the eclipse without glasses. However, on Joey’s Instagram account, there’s a photo of him wearing what appears to be the protective glasses.

Either way, we hope that Joey Bada$$ is okay. Reps for Logic had no comment on the matter.
