Never look directly into the sun. It’s just one of those things that everybody knows. Or that’s what we thought at least. But it turns out that some people recently viewed the solar eclipse without protective eye-wear, and one of those people was rapper Joey Bada$$.
“Am I crazy for watching the eclipse today w no glasses?” he tweeted recently. “This ain’t the first solar eclipse and I’m pretty sure our ancestors ain’t have no fancy eye-wear. Also pretty sure they ain’t all go blind.”
Nobody knows what happened to our ancestors, but the internet has a pretty good idea about what happened to Joey Bada$$, because shortly after his incredibly “bright” idea, he unexpectedly cancelled three shows in Cleveland, Chicago and Toronto. Coincidence?
