A$AP Rocky Charged With Assault After Allegedly Slapping Another Female Fan
Give some people a little money and they start thinking they’re so important they can go around slapping folks.
According to TMZ, rapper A$AP Rocky has been charged with assault in Philly after he reportedly slapped a female fan during his time at the Made in America festival this past weekend. According to the site, the woman who received a hand to the face was attending the concerts going on during the festival on Saturday, and she says that when A$AP was making his way through the crowd, some eager fans were pulling on his clothes. He clearly didn’t appreciate that, which is understandable. But for some crazy reason, he allegedly turned around and hauled off and slapped the young woman, hitting her with an open hand. It’s not clear if she was doing any of the clothes pulling, but it looks like he assumed she was.
From there, the story gets a little dramatic. The woman claims she was injured during the altercation, saying that she suffered whiplash from the sudden slap and its impact. After making such claims, the District Attorney’s office looked into her case and found there was enough proof to charge A$AP with misdemeanor simple assault. No response as of yet from the rapper, but this isn’t the first time he’s been accused of slapping a female fan.
If you’ll recall, we did a post showing you video where the rapper looks to have slapped a fan. In a similar scenario, in July, while in Sydney, Australia, the rapper was moving through a crowd of fans. In an effort to get his attention, a woman tapped hard on his head, and in response, he reached up and slapped her, then proceeded to point at her in what some would call a “playful” way. The rapper has a history of giving a hand to his fans–to the face that is–so this new scenario might isn’t too hard to believe. Hands to yourself, bruh.
