During a Memorial Day Concert, popular reggaeton rapper Don Omar experienced something that is unusual during his performances: he was booed.
According to Univision.com, the auditorium in Los Angeles exploded with jeers and boos as the rapper walked off stage to end his concert at 9:40 PM, merely one hour and three minutes removed from its 8:37 PM start time. The concert was marketed as a “special” event for his MT02 Underplay Tour.
According to Terra.com, assistants working at the show were surprised by the short duration of the performance which included classic Don Omar hits such as “Dale Don Dale,” “Pobre Diabla,” “Cuentale,” and “Ella Baila Sola.” Univision.com adds that many fans were calling Don Omar a “thief” because they felt that the cost for the concert tickets merited a longer performance than they received. There was no indication of what tickets cost by Univision.com.
“The lack of professionalism” as dubbed by many in attendance at the concert, according to Terra.com, is only the latest in a series of controversies surrounding the Puerto Rican rapper. In September 2007, Don Omar, whose birth name is William Omar Landrón Rivera, was briefly detained in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia due to a legal dispute after cancelling a concert in Bolivia. A Bolivian concert promoter sued him and some of his management claiming that Don Omar had defrauded them for $70,000 USD upon the cancellation. The rapper’s response was that the company putting together the concert had not sent him airline tickets on time.
Don Omar is also banned from appearing on Latin American network Univision after his marriage with Univision weathergirl Jackie Guerrido fell apart. According to Latina.com, Don Omar and Guerrido were in constant battle at Univision studios and the rapper was banned from the network for “defending his marriage.” During the tumultuous divorce, Don Omar sent threatening messages to Guerrido over Twitter.
