Ya Won’t Be Slapping Fans Over Here! A$AP Rocky Gets Dropped From Canadian Music Festival
A$AP Rocky will probably think twice before he raises his hand to slap another female fan. Back in July video footage surfaced of the Harlem rapper forcefully slapping a female fan at a concert in Australia. Two months later, another woman by the name of Lisa Wade came forward claiming that the 24-year-old problem child slapped her at this summer’s Made In America festival in Philadelphia.
“He slapped me pretty hard. My whole neck shifted. I was in shock and couldn’t even think straight afterwards […] He literally slapped me in my face. He looked at me and slapped me. I had a mark. I was bruised. I went to the hospital. I had to leave the concert because I was so upset […] There’s no excuse for a man to ever hit a female… ever. Am I gonna sue him? No, but I want to make sure that he gets prosecuted for this and he gets in trouble because this isn’t the first time that he’s done it and it isn’t the first time that a performer or a rap star has hit someone in the face and hasn’t gotten in trouble for it,” said his latest alleged assault victim who recently pressed charges against him.
Now it also appears that Rocky’s alleged slap-happy ways have also caused him to miss out on a gig at York University in Toronto. According to TMZ, hip hop’s problem child was scheduled to perform at a music festival being held at the university next week, but the student federation pulled him off of the concert expressing that “the event cannot proceed until this matter is resolved.” They were also sure to specify that just because they dropped him from the event doesn’t mean that they believe he’s guilty.
Welp, it doesn’t mean they think he’s innocent either.
What do you think of their decision to pull the plug?
