VIDEO: Crazy Fan Pulls 'Glee' Star Darren Criss Off Stage During Live Tour
Darren Criss joins a growing list of music performers who took an on-stage spill recently. But Criss' nose-dive wasn't a product of clumsiness...it was a product of a fan's craziness.
During a tour stop in Washington, D.C., Darren was performing "Somebody to Love" with the rest of the cast, and went to the front of the stage to shake the hand of a fan in the front row. The woman then grabbed Criss and pulled, causing him to jump off the front of the stage and into the pit, narrowly avoiding hitting the metal gate at the front of the crowd.
Criss was good-natured about the incident on Twitter later: "To the lady who pulled me off the stage and into the pit tonight: if I ever see you on a stage... keep your wits about ya. Love, Darren :) !" he tweeted.
But there was a hint of annoyance in Criss' next tweet: "btw I'm lucky I didn't hit my head on the gate in front of this lady. Seriously close call tonight... Like, please don't kill me. I'm nice," he added.
A fan in the audience caught video of the incident. Watch the overzealous fan pull Criss down:
