He revealed on Twitter: "I'm entirely hurt by a so-called fan that I just encountered she wasn't realizing I was listening, she said I look like I have cancer".

Earlier that day, Carter's management team "tweeted" that the singer wouldn't be able to make his Kansas City, Missouri, concert, which was scheduled on July 15, due to "transportation issues".
