“This is a tough country… It’s bulletproof, maybe even invincible… It’s definitely blessed..” said Diplo, “We were actually ready 15 minutes later to get on and do a show for everyone in Sao Paulo just as we made sure the medical teams were good… But that’s when thunder and lightning started to pour down as if Brazil started to cry.”
“I will see you next year Sao Paulo because you know we love you”
Added to the Diplo statement, “You can in the second video on my story there was gunshot during the song and some brave security rushed to the side of the truck.. This breaks my heart that someone was hurt during a party..”
“All I can ask God for is that he can protect everyone when we are gathering to celebrate.. We want all our shows to be a safe place..”
“I know that brazil is considered dangerous from outsiders but I have been coming here for twenty years and have never seen this kind of violence violence until today… People tell me that I’m lucky.. in the aftermath, I know everyone is alive but I’m praying for them and I know it’s not going to change the carnival spirit”
