XXXTentacion Offers Free Concert for Fans After Anti-Rape Event Gets Canceled
The Florida rapper announces to fans that the now-canceled event, which was to coincide with Art Basel in Miami, was supposed to cater to victims of rape, where they could come and tell their stories and support other victims.
"Rape victims can come to this event and tell their stories and help others, and support others who have been through a similar instance," he originally stated. "I ask that if you come to the event you come bearing no type of negative energy and you make sure you come with the full support in your heart to those that have experienced any sort of post-traumatic experience or event."
After XXX shared the address with fans and followers on his social media platforms, the venue reportedly ended up getting spray-painted with graffiti, leading to the event being shut down. The 2017 XXL Freshman is now going to put on a free show to make it up to those that wanted to come out to the original event. The rapper says the performance will happen "sometime this week," and he'll reveal the venue and time in the near future.
Despite the event being canceled, XXX assures fans that he still wants to coordinate the anti-rape event and make sure it runs properly this time around.
The announcement of the original event came a month after the 17 rapper vowed to donate $100,000 to domestic violence prevention programs. This news also comes a week after he went to court for a hearing regarding his domestic battery case.
