A$AP Rocky Allegedly Slaps Female Fan During Australia Show


After tweets began spreading around the Internet yesterday, a video has emerged of A$AP Rocky appearing to slap a female fan in the face during a show in Australia last week.

In the video, which is on YouTube and embedded below, Rocky has left the stage and is in the middle of the crowd. The woman reaches down from above and taps him on the head, attempting to get his attention in order to blow him a kiss. As he turns around, he appears to slap the woman in the face, and then point his finger in her direction after she recoils away.

The incident occurred during Rocky’s performance at the Hordern Pavilion in Sydney last Friday. It’s not the first time Rocky’s gotten himself into some trouble with audiences—he reportedly cut a performance short last month after an audience member stole his hat, and famously was involved in a brawl with a crowd at SXSW in 2012.

Rocky’s tour of Australia wrapped up with shows in Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth in addition to his set in Sydney.

    Well two people were hitting him the female and some other person it appears the female was tapping him softly while the other person was hitting him rather hardly so yeah he probably got confused and reacted out of anger.
