#Roommates, remember when your local news anchor’s warned you to not look at the eclipse with the naked eye? Well, rapper Joey Badass took his chances, like Donnie, and looked up at the blazing sun… and let’s just say it cost him a couple shows.

According to NY Daily News, the rapper bragged about not wearing glasses on Twitter and then a couple days later he tweeted that he was cancelling shows due to “unforeseen circumstances.”

Now it’s not clear if Joey actually injured his eyes from gazing into the sun, but the site claims several people have been reporting eye problems after looking at the eclipse without proper glasses.

“Am I crazy for watching the eclipse today w no glasses? I’ve sungzed before and afterwards saw colors for a whole day. I didn’t die tho, “he wrote on Twitter.

He cancelled a total of three shows, including one in Toronto.
