On Friday night, pop debris Aaron Carter discovered that when you reportedly run your mouth to say racist things, the recipient might be there to take you out of the race! I have no idea what that means, but if you’re going to modify “Bye Felicia” into “Bye Felipe” and direct it towards a gentleman of Hispanic origin, it might lead to fisticuffs! Meth usage can’t shield you from a beating!
The former Trumpette was performing at the Loony Bin in Bradley, Illinois (oh, that’s gonna need a band-aid) when some activity in the audience during his show irked him. Hey, don’t you know who he is? Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff used to fight over him! (Oh, 2004. We barely knew ye.)
The opening act, ILL State, had just wrapped and a member of the band was goofing, grabbing people’s cellphones and shooting video as Aaron tried to perform.
An eyewitness tells TMZ Aaron had security remove the guy, and as he was getting dragged out you hear Aaron say, “Bye Felipe,” a take on “Bye Felicia.” We’re told the guy, who was Hispanic, was taken out of the bar but came back in and allegedly attacked Aaron, damaging his computer and a speaker in the process.
It’s bad enough when your alleged big mouth gets you a beatdown, but then your Acer gets damaged! Those things are like $200 bucks! Multiple people reportedly rushed the stage and you can see Aaron being hustled off by a bodyguard (Aaron Carter has enough money to afford a bodyguard?) in the video below. Witnesses say Aaron was bloody, and taken to the hospital.
Fans of the Backstreet Boys who also worship their related acts like Aaron and Lou Perlman’s death in prison shouldn’t despair. Hollywood Life reports that Aaron took to Twitter that night to assure his fan
s that he’s A-OK and free to resume his side-gig of coming up with clever racial slurs.
Now checked out of the ER, he’s tweeted up a storm to assure his fans he’s okay and claimed he did not in fact make any racial remark. “I’m still standing,” he tweeted and announced he had “checked out of the hospital.” He wrote that despite multiple injuries, he did not get knocked out during the brawl.
Aaron posted a picture of himself cuddling with his dogs as he rested in bed after his ordeal. “Chillen w my boys before I finally get to bed… hospitals suck. & so do bullies. My face is still pretty though and untouched,” he tweeted with an upside down smiley face emoji.
Aaron’s “bullies” gave their side of things on the Ill State YouTube channel in the description accompanying the video entitled “Ill State Deals With Aaron Carter’s Racism.” (Who knew so much drama could go down on the Midwest busted pop star underground circuit?)
While Carter was performing, one of the Ill State members was in the crowd at the front of the stage enjoying the show. As he was conversing with friends Carter decided to comment on the lack of attention to him. Carter continued with a cocky attitude and continued it by telling him to leave and saying, “Bye Felipe”.
In my favorite part of this story, Aaron tweeted this in what looks like an effort to demonstrate that he’s not racist:

In other words, this is what Aaron is trying to say: “How can I be racist? Queen Bey once playfully leaned against me in 2004 when I was 12 and slightly relevant! Some of my best friends are the biggest artists in the world who are black and would now mistake me for the Orkin man’s apprentice who looks like he might be rifling through the homeowner’s dresser drawers while his boss is spraying for bugs.”
