Mumbai: Indian-origin Canadian musician A P Dhillon, who is celebrated worldwide for his music, recently irked fans while performing at the Coachella music festival held in USA recently. The singer-songwriter shared a video of his performance on Instagram and captioned it, “Brown Munde have left the dessert (sic)”.

A section of his fans were irritated as the video showed the singer breaking his guitar as part of his performance. Many people criticised his action and said it was unbecoming for an Indian to ape other artists who broke their guitars on stage after their performances.

“Though it is part of rock culture where the guitarists break their guitars on stage after the performance, Dhillon being an Indian doing something like this is totally uncalled for (sic),” wrote one person on X, formerly Twitter.
One user wrote: "Respect the things which brought you to this stage. It’s completely your and your loss (sic)." Another user wrote, "Ban gaya cool (Did you become cool) (sic)?" A third user commented, "And you think doing this looked good (sic)?".
