The smoke flare was reportedly tossed into the crowd, causing chaos and fans to scatter. Pump and his team, as well as attendees, evacuated. Shortly after, Lil Pump continued on with the show by performing the Kanye West track "I Love It" atop his tour bus. A police spokesperson told the publication that they received a call reporting a "smoke flare inside the venue" at around 9:30 PM.

Lil Pump later took to IG to talk about the incident. "Some dumb ass threw a smoke bomb in the show. F*cked up the whole show [...] Y'all threw three. Whoever the f*ck threw that y'all made me faint in the middle of the show. Bitch," the rapper said.
