Reactions to AP Dhillon's new post

AP Dhillon paid a tribute to late Punjabi singer Sidhu Moosewala during his performance at Coachella 2024. In reference to which, a comment read, "But Sidhu Moosewala would have also respected the musical instruments, being an artist, if he was here to see this. So before making loose statements like ‘media is controlled’, you better learn some good manners and values, buddy. God bless." Another person wrote in the comments section, "What a cringe caption lol."

A fan also commented, "You’re justifying wrong things brother. Are you even remembering your culture of how we treat musical instruments? That guitar was the one you held it for your show and it produced the vibration you wanted. After that destroying it was the coolest thing? This is an act of a fool. A true musician loves his instruments more than music. Show some respect, accept it and apologise to yourself, not to us. All we can see is your graph going down. If music gave you the fame, at least learn to respect it."
