This goes very wrong VERY quickly...
The fan, known as 'Xan' on Twitter, asks Rami: "Can you say hi to my friends?", to which he answers "No, but we can take a picture, is that alright?"

Bohemian Rhapsody fans and Rami Malek enthusiasts have rushed to Twitter to react to the video:
I know Rami is super chill and nice with fans but after seeing this I’m terrified of him lmao pic.twitter.com/TFpYop1y0m— carol îmwe (@carxlinv) October 30, 2018

But no one has made light of the situation quite like the original fan, who is still joking about going on the Ellen Show in LA to meet Mr Malek once again.
im so unsettled does anyone know when he’s gonna be on ellen so i know when to hide in my cave and never get out?— xan 🌾 (@enemyfiIm) October 31, 2018
Rami himself has since reacted to the video, saying: "I am who I am and people can interpret that how they want."
He told E!: "I love the fans, I wouldn't be here without my fans and I try to take as much time as possible."
"Sometimes, when you've been travelling around the earth a couple times, you try to just be protective of your time as a human being."
