I don’t understand why people do this sort of thing in the first place, but I especially don’t get it when the victim is a celebrity. Celebrities have security. Security that’s going to be more than happy to whip your ass at a moment’s notice. Adam Levine Attacked by Sugar Bomb while greeting fans after Maroon 5 Performance at Jimmy Kimmel
Video of the incident shows a man emptying a bag of white powder into Levine’s face, leaving it and the singer’s sweater half-coated in white.
Levine, 36, who released the a disco/funk track called Sugar earlier this year, appeared to glare at the man before security quickly whisked him away.
“It looked like he wanted to fight the guy,” witness Laura Tijerina told CNN.
“I think this guy had it planned. It was a brown bag with tape around it, which was weird. I just saw powder everywhere. It was just so quick.”
Levine was unhurt, but a group of uniformed guards quickly tackled the suspect, who was reportedly arrested on suspicion of battery.
“He he he he he! His song is called Sugar and I dumped sugar on him! Get it? I’m so funny!”
