ASAP Rocky Posts Pre-Attack Footage, Claims His Security Was Hit: Watch
In a series of posts to Instagram on Tuesday (July 2), Rocky showed a pair of videos that featured the series of events leading up to the fight that was captured by an onlooker. In the videos, you can see the alleged victim following and attempting to talk to Rocky and his crew for an extended period of time. You can even see the man hitting Rocky's security guard with a pair of headphones.
"SO A FEW DRUG ADDICTS ARE NOT MY FANS , WE DONT KNOW THESE GUYS AND WE DIDNT WANT TROUBLE," Rocky wrote in his caption. "THEY FOLLOWED US FOR 4 BLOCKS , AND THEY WERE SLAPPING GIRLS BUTTS WHO PASSED , GIVE ME A BREAK."
Rocky and his team try to diffuse the situation multiple times in the clips he shared, asking the men and his friend to stop following them and to leave them be. His crew even asked a female fan who approached them to help talk to the guys, and though she did, it did not appear to help.
"HITS SECURITY IN FACE WITH HEADPHONES THEN FOLLOW US," the Testing rapper said in the second clip he shared. "IM INNOCENT. THEY TRYNNA ARREST ME OUT HERE NOW , SMH."
One of the women eventually told Rocky that one of the men had slapped her on her butt, which TMZ initially said led to the fight.
