Shawn Mendes Refuses to Give Man Autograph for Fear He Will Sell It (Video)

Shawn Mendes Refuses to Give Man Autograph for Fear He Will Sell It (Video)

Shawn Mendes is totally sweet to his fans. He spends hours posing for pictures with them and trying to be the absolute best performer he can be for them.

That’s why a new video of Shawn refusing to give an autograph to one man seems to be upsetting some people.

Still, upon watching the video in its entirety, Shawn isn’t being unreasonable at all — he is simply being wary that the man will sell his autograph to exploit his young fans.

In the video, a man repeatedly asks Shawn for an autograph for his sister, and Shawn refuses. “Because people like you! You sell the signatures!” he repeats.

Eventually, when the man doesn’t back down, Shawn tells him to call his sister (whom he doubts exists) so that he can confirm it is she who wants an autograph.

Throughout the video, Shawn continues to pose for pictures with other fans, saying, “You guys know what I mean?” They all nod in agreement.

Eventually, he talks to the man’s sister (or someone) on the phone and agrees to sign the autograph, noting that the man got his sister’s age wrong.

“Sorry. I hope you’re cool with that,” he ends the encounter.

While some people are calling Shawn a diva, it is clear throughout the video that he is trying to do right by his fans and make sure that no one is trying to use them. This man may have had a sister, but if he did, the lucky girl got a phone call from her idol too! That’s better than any autograph, right? Win-win!
