In a bid for relevancy, Aaron Carter is telling everyone who will listen why exactly he got punched in the head this weekend.
The former teenybopper — whose greatest claim to fame is having dated Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff, maybe at the same time — was attacked after a concert in Illinois. According to Perez Hilton, ILL State, a Hispanic musician, punched the 29-year-old twice for taunting him by saying, “Bye Felipe.”
Fans jumped to Carter's defense when media outlets criticized him for being racist.

Yea that warranted getting assaulted & battery and punched twice in the head and still not knocked out. 🤔 https://t.co/qwhDC9S9g1— Aaron Carter (@aaroncarter) February 18, 2017
But also? He can’t be racist because he has Mexican friends, okay?
And a 100% Mexican manager and she is basically my adopted mom. And my ex girlfriend Myra 3rd generation Mexican https://t.co/KobUn5nNHF— Aaron Carter (@aaroncarter) February 19, 2017
“[I have a] 100% Mexican manager and she is basically my adopted mom. And my ex girlfriend Myra 3rd generation Mexican,” he wrote, even though we all know Myra did not ask to be dragged into this.
I also learned Spanish so I could speak with her parents who weren't fluent in English. https://t.co/KobUn5nNHF— Aaron Carter (@aaroncarter) February 19, 2017
It’s also common knowledge that the best way to convince people that you’re not racist is to remind everyone you have a vague grasp of another language, so he continued: “I also learned Spanish so I could speak with her parents who weren’t fluent in English.” BYE, AARON.
This isn’t the first time Carter started drama for no reason. In 2013, he made up a fantastical tale about being beat up by grown men who happened to be New Kids On The Block stans. That’s literally the best thing he could come up with.
Ignorance really is such sweet bliss.
