Bulldog Bash was last night. Flo Rida was supposed to be the headliner. But Flo Rida didn’t care about that. He didn’t show up. He single-handedly broke Bulldog Bash.
Flo Rida isn't here— FWtCT (@mstatesports) October 8, 2016
What trash music am I going to get drunk to then
And of course, Twitter reacted to this atrocious act against Mississippi State students wanting to get intoxicated and party. People were not too easy on Mr. Flo Rida.
Pell was more than happy to become the main event last night. The dude is an artist that is currently doing all he can to grow and improve, and this was the perfect opportunity for him. He appreciated Bulldog Bash, unlike some people. We love you, Pell.
Shout out to @official_flo for letting me headline tonight! @MSUBulldogBash set up something beautiful!!!!— Pell (@PELLYEAH) October 8, 2016
And now, I present to you, the best of Flo Rida’s mentions:
Raise your hand if you've been personally victimized by @official_flo pic.twitter.com/fKq2TSXhaU— Erin Blake (@e_l_blake) October 8, 2016
(Flo Rida isn’t that good tbh)

I would also appreciate Flo Rida paying my tuition
@official_flo either needs to come to the game and perform the national anthem or he needs to pay my tuition. Your pick flo rida— Mary-Will King (@MaryWillKing) October 8, 2016
Flo Rida is indeed a fake “Florida”

And ultimately, this is the question that everyone needs an answer to:
.@official_flo is it bc it wasn't your house— Britt Reynolds (@brittkelso) October 8, 2016
As a whole, I still enjoyed my evening. But it’s frustrating to see this situation take place when it’s possible it could have been avoided. Flo Rida never gave a rhyme (see what I did there I'm funny please laugh) or a reason for why he backed out. And, at the time that this was written, there was no official statement about the situation other than this tweet from the student association.
Unfortunately, Flo Rida will not be coming to Bulldog Bash. Please stay for the rest of the event and check out Pell! He's going live NOW!— MSU Student Assoc. (@MSU_SA) October 8, 2016
For the most part, I agree with Evan here. Though this particular instance was likely something that was out of their control, it is their responsibility to put on a show with an artist that is here.
Though I'm not fully blaming them (97.5% of the blame should go to Flo Rida) I do believe that a small portion should fall on the student association. Hopefully the contract, or whatever agreement made between the SA and Flo Rida was set so that no major amounts of money were lost on this.
@MSU_SA s/o to you guys for for ruining the biggest weekend of the semester— Evan Ertel (@eertel904) October 8, 2016
@MSU_SA don't expect students to go to your events. Next time you schedule act, make sure they're actually cool with playing— Evan Ertel (@eertel904) October 8, 2016
This whole Bulldog Bash has been a weird one. From an initial plan of trying to relocate the concert to campus (which would have likely not been great) and now to this, it certainly has not been the best Bash in MSU history.
