Bad Bunny’s Team Say He Didn’t Approve Coachella Harry Styles Diss
While Bad Bunny himself declined to comment, a representative for the Puerto Rican superstar told Rolling Stone the rapper did not approve the on-stage visual that appeared to shade Styles during his set.
Additionally, Sturdy, Inc., the company that provided the background visuals for Bad Bunny's set, confirmed Bad Bunny did not approve the tweet that was shown during his performance.
"Our intention is to create light-hearted designs that embody Bad Bunny’s personality and amplify the experience he presents as a performer," the company wrote in a statement on their Instagram Story.
"The request from the artist during the visuals for ‘El Apagón’ performance was to use the image only and not text from the tweet, which we take responsibility for and [will] correct for Friday’s performance. These visuals are a celebration of Bad Bunny and his dedication to empowering his native island, Puerto Rico," the statement continued.
Bad Bunny performed "El Apagón," off his album Un Verano Sin Ti, at Coachella Friday (April 14). During the performance, a fan tweet which read "Goodnight benito could do as it was but harry could never do el apagon" was displayed on the screen behind Bad Bunny, sparking rumors of a feud between the two artists.
However, Bad Bunny appears to be a fan of Styles. He performed the U.K. star's song "As It Was" during his "Carpool Karaoke" segment on The Late Late Show With James Corden in March.
Bad Bunny also flashed Styles a hand heart when he attended Styles' Love On Tour trek.
