Having fans is a beautiful thing. The sheer love and admiration for the talent possessed by others has created entire industries' worth of stars. Unfortunately, there are also many dangers that come with being a highly recognizable celebrity, especially when your presence so deeply affects people that they cross the boundaries of human decency. Indeed, many stars have been victims of stalkers, public humiliation, and even murders.

Just days after Bebe Rhexa was hit in the face by an iPhone thrown by a fan, Ava Max was slapped by a stage invader during a concert on June 21. Max was in the middle of a performance in LA when a man rushed on stage and swiped at the star, making contact with her forehead before security restrained him. Max responded like a pro and continued dancing, barely missing a beat. "He slapped me so hard that he scratched the inside of my eye. He’s never coming to a show again," she later wrote on Twitter. Luckily, Max didn't sustain serious injuries from the incident, unlike Rhexa who ended up with stitches. The man who attacked Max was removed from the venue and reportedly told security he just wanted to "hold her," according to TMZ.
