As every year, Coachella, the world’s best known music festival began two weekends ago. This 2023, as in each edition, has had some of the most famous artists of the moment for its poster. These are distributed during Friday, Saturday and Sunday, of the two weeks that the event lasts, between the three scenarios with which the valley of Indio counts. Thus the attendees have been able to enjoy during these days singers, among others, as Rosalía, BlackPink, Calvin Harris and, above all, Bad Bunny.
Benito has been the headliner of both Fridays and as it could not be otherwise, he has made his audience dance during both performances. In the second of them he has even paid tribute to Shakira in addition to having guest artists such as Arcangel. However, the first one sparked controversy due to a series of tweets that appeared on the giant screen that was on stage behind him while singing El apagón. Most of the messages that could be read were praising the career of the reggaeton singer from its beginnings until now. Still, among all of them, people noticed a tweet that said that “Benito can do ‘As It Was’ but Harry could never do ‘El apagón’. This comment in which they compared the former member of One Direction with Bad Bunny did not fall very well among the people, so it quickly started circulating on social media.
A week later, Benito has decided not to leave the second weekend of Coachella without apologizing to Harry. During his closing performance on Friday the Puerto Rican captured on the big screen of the stage a big tweet in which you could read: “Sorry Harry. It was a mistake from my team. We love you”. In this way the interpreter of Yonaguni has put an end to the controversy and has managed to return to be Trending Tropic on Twitter.
Before Benito’s public apology his team had already apologized through their social networks for what happened. ” Our intention is to create joyful designs that embody Bad Bunny’s personality and amplify the experience he presents as an artist. The request of the artist during the images for the presentation of ‘El apagón’ was to use only the image and not the text of the tweet, of which we are responsible and we correct it for the presentation of [this] Friday. These images are a celebration of Bad Bunny and his dedication to empower his native island, Puerto Rico,” explained Sturdy.co on instagram. In this way they made clear that the artist never accepted the tweet that was projected during his show.
