Rising star Steve Lacy is experiencing a taste of controversy. The artist took to Instagram to defend his actions onstage at his concert Monday night in New Orleans.

Steve Lacy took to Instagram to explain his behavior at his concert in New Orleans Monday night.

During his performance, Lacy was forced to dodge objects thrown at him, interrupting him as he sang his recent chart-topping hit "Bad Habit."

Soon afterward, Lacy approached a fan toward the front of the crowd asking if he could hold what seemed to be a disposable camera. Lacy then smashed the object onstage, and walked off.

The incident was captured on a NSFW video by fans who were shocked at the artist's reaction.

A fan captures the moment Steve Lacy smashed what seemed to be a disposable camera on stage, moments before walking off.

"I don't believe i owe anyone an apology- maybe i couldve reacted better? sure. always. i'm a student of life. but i'm a real person with real feelings and real reactions," Lacy wrote on Instagram. "I'm not a product or a robot. i am human."

Lacy, a longtime guitarist for the R&B group "The Internet," has been in the shadows of fame for years, producing for artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Tyler the Creator, and Mac Miller. Recently, Lacy has found global success following the release of his latest studio album "Gemini Rights" earlier this year.

Rapper Kid Cudi experienced a similar issue to Lacy this summer when he ended his Rolling Loud performance early after being bombarded with water bottles by fans, the Washington Post reported.

In an October interview with Apple Music's Zane Lowe, Cudi addressed the incident, saying, "It's supposed to be an unspoken agreement amongst artists and fans, that you're supposed to give the utmost respect and not interfere with the performance."
