A$AP Rocky Videotaped Slapping Female Fan
In the latest "rappers being awful in Australia" news: Harlem-based A$AP Rocky slapped a female fan during his show in Sydney.
Watch footage of the slap after the jump.
The fan attempted to get A$AP's attention and blow him a kiss by tapping him on the head but was instead greeted by a very sudden slap from the artist. As Billboard mentions from their piece about it today, this is the second time an American hip-hop artist has displayed some form of abuse towards women while on tour in Australia this summer. Tyler, the Creator verbally assaulted a feminist activist who, as part of the group Collective Shout, had been lobbying for the cancellation of his shows in the area.
Even for A$AP, this shocking moment comes on the heels of some awful and racist "beauty tips" given to The Coveteur on how red lipstick shouldn't be worn by dark-skinned girls.
