In the age of social media, it can be hard to walk the line between lighthearted controversy and PR catastrophe. Levitation Jones (real name Brian Garner) has made remarks that have resulted in the latter. Last night he took to Twitter to request that members of his fan base provide ketamine for his upcoming performance at Aisle 5 in Atlanta.
The tweet (which has since been deleted) quickly found its way to Aisle 5's management, who Garner said asked him to delete it from his account. In a series of subsequent tweets, he claimed that the request had been a joke. "I've been playing my sets super clear headed and not getting high," he wrote. "Been taking myself extremely seriously. Haven't had issues this entire year."
