Victoria F’s Ex Chase Rice Just Held A PACKED Concert In The Middle Of A Pandemic, And It Was Not For The Right Reasons

His "The Bachelor" drama doesn't hold a candle to this mess.

If you're a fan of "The Bachelor," there's no way you've forgotten Chase Rice — the country artist who surprised Pilot Pete by having dated one-on-one concert attendee, Victoria F. Now, Rice is back to making headlines, and this time it's actually serious.

The singer held an outdoor concert over the weekend, and the video he posted to his Instagram story makes it clear that COVID-19 precautions were NOT in effect during the show.

The footage shows a large, packed crowd of fans standing shoulder to shoulder with no signs of masks or social distancing. According to the venue, they reduced their maximum capacity from 10,000 to 4,000, and less than 1,000 people were in attendance at Rice's Saturday night show. Still, they were reportedly "unable to further enforce the physical distancing recommended in the signage posted across the property" and are looking into "alternative scenarios" to prevent this from happening at future shows that they currently have booked for this summer.

Fellow country star Kelsea Ballerini took to Twitter to express her disappointment in Chase Rice's decision, calling him "selfish enough to put people's health at risk."

Unsurprisingly, Rice has expressed his dislike for quarantining and other COVID-19 precautions in the past, posting an original song to his YouTube channel called "Dear Corona" back in mid-March. The song, through which Rice speaks directly to the coronavirus, includes the lyrics: "We're gonna show up, hold our drinks high, sing the songs 'bout trucks and beer. You're gonna be met with a big f**** you 'cause you ain't welcome here."

Tennessee is one of many U.S. states that has seen an alarming increase in COVID-19 cases. On the Friday before Rice's concert, the state confirmed 1,410 additional cases, setting a new record for the most positive cases within one day and making it the worst week of the pandemic in Tennessee so far.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
