The selfie-taking fan who was kicked off stage by The Story So Far frontman Parker Cannon during a concert in Toronto has spoken out for the first time after the pop punk outfit were banned from the venue for the ugly incident. 

The fan in question is believed to be 21-year-old Bella llic, who told Alt Press via email that despite how nasty the kick looked, she has no hard feelings towards the band. 

"It was all in good fun in my opinion, and it wasn’t even a hard kick, just like a push or nudge," Ilic said.

"I know that I shouldn’t have been up there for that long of time — especially with my phone — but I’m not hurt, and I don’t have any malicious feelings toward the band whatsoever. I laughed when I fell into the crowd and I kept rocking out.

"I still love Parker Cannon, the Story So Far, their music, their shows, everything more than ever. I understand what could happen at hardcore shows, and, honestly, I have been seriously injured before at different shows by the crowd, but I wasn’t injured by Parker!

"I just want to set the record straight that I’m fine and I hope this doesn’t change anyone's opinion on the band, because it shouldn’t! I can’t wait to be at their next show, only I’ll cool it with the Snapchats."

Ilic's comments come after the Mod Club manager Jorge Dias slammed Cannon's actions.

"We are appalled by the actions of the singer," Dias said.

"That was a very cowardly act."
