Shawn Mendes Initially Denies Fan An Autograph, Convinced It Will Be Sold Online

Perhaps Shawn Mendes is a little too protective of his fans.

Footage obtained by CelebsGo shows the Canadian superstar getting into a heated verbal altercation over an autograph request.

Shawn goes on the defensive off the top of the clip, telling an older male fan “These are my fans and I do everything for them.”

“So why can’t you sign for them?” the unidentified man asks. “Because people like you,” Shawn passionately responds. “You sell the signatures! What’d you just tell me?”

Fans nearby seem to back up the singer-songwriter, with one voice from the crowd saying the man “implied” he would sell the autograph.

As the video continues to roll, the man claims the signature is for his sister, to which Shawn asks him to “swear to God” that’s true. The “Mercy” singer continues to challenge the fan, asking him to call his sister to prove he won’t be profiting from the exchange.
