During the show, the crowd began singing along to "She Will Be Loved." According to People and CHV news, Adam said, “Well, if you want to do my job, go ahead."

Fans were, frankly, very upset.

@TMZ @adamlevine: For you it was just another show on a bad day; for most of us in Chile it was the one-in-a-lifetime chance to see you guys live. I spent more than a month's salary for VIP tickets for me, my wife and kids. Honestly, your apologies are not sincere and just won't do.

@maroon5 lousy show in Viña del Mar guys.. haven’t seen such unprofessionalism in a good while. You should ask your fans for forgivenness.. there are no excuses for doing such a poor job

#Maroon5 Adam Levine en Viña del mar descripción gráfica:

Fuck you #Maroon5, especially Adam Levine. What I thought was going to be the greatest concert ever turned out to be the worst. Don't bother coming back to Chile. We won't miss you.

I love Maroon 5 but shame on you Adam, you can't go to Chile and to insult Viña del Mar audience #Maroon5EnChile

Adam responded to the backlash on his Instagram. "To be totally frank, there were some things holding me back sonically last night, and I let them get to me. It impacted how I was behaving onstage, which is unprofessional and I apologize for that.”

"I struggled a lot and sometimes it’s really hard for me to mask the struggle. For that, I let you guys down and I apologize. Last night wasn’t our best, and for that all I can say is that I’m really sorry."

Well, at least he apologized. What do you guys think of this situation? Let me know in the comments below.
