Diplo offered Brazil his support after a shooting took place during his concert in São Paulo on Tuesday.
The 41-year-old DJ wrote in Portuguese on his Instagram on Wednesday, “I am very sad to know that people were hurt in a moment of joy and happiness like Carnival. I have been coming to Brazil for 20 years and it was the first time that I witnessed any type of violence. But we must not let this end the freedom brought by the spirit of Carnival.”
He also added a message in English to the caption, along with a slideshow of photos from the incident.
“This is a tough country,” Diplo, 41, said. “It’s bullet proof, maybe even invincible.. Its definitely blessed.”
According to The Sun, a man opened fire on a man and a woman attending the street party in an apparent theft attempt.
In pictures, security guards can be seen hovering over the musician to protect him.
Diplo shared that despite the shooting, he and his team planned to continue with the show, but the weather did not permit them to do so.
“We were actually ready 15 minutes later to get on and do a show for everyone in Sao Paulo just as we made sure the medical teams were good.. But that’s when thunder and lightning started to pour down as if Brazil started to cry,” he wrote. “I will see you next year Sao Paulo because you know we love you.”
