According to Rich Homie Quan it was a matter of self-defense not assault when he introduce his five fingers to the face of a concertgoer in a viral video clip that's making the rounds on social media.

During a July 4 performance in Racine, Wisconsin the XXL Freshman was on stage when someone apparently grabbed his arm and started pulling him from the stage.

The BET Award nominee swung back. His rep told TMZ that they believe the fan was a would be thief who was trying to steal Quan's watch prompting his reaction.

Quan explained, "The person that tried to rob me was not one of my fans. My fans are loyal to me. I did what anyone else would do if they were being robbed."
