Things were not Gucci
A Lil Pump show ended up abruptly after a fan threw a water bottle at the “Gucci Gang” rapper. After being hit with the bottle, the 17-year-old rap star challenged the bottle chucker before tossing something of his own back, the microphone.
“That was you? You think you’re funny?” he yelled before slamming the mic down into the bottle thrower. “Come up here and do that sh-t p-ssy.”
After the throw security quickly escorted Pump off the stage and remaining security guards hopped into the crowd to fight with the trouble-starting fans.
While there were plenty of fans who were shocked at the outburst and quite a few were disappointed over missing the rest of the show, the internet mainly seems concerned with Pump’s throwing motion.
“Threw that mic like a li b-tch,” wrote Twitter user @joshiwea. “We know u soft lil pump stop actin.”
“Go and look on YouTube see when T.I got a water bottle thrown at him he ain’t storm off stage or throw the mic,” wrote user @Cash_Chosen1. “Tip was ready to fight lil pump cut the tough guy act u ain’t throwing no hands.”
Pump later took to his social media to explain why he acted the way he did and to apologize to his Connecticut fans who didn’t get a whole show.
“Sh-t ended because some stupid ass n-gga thought he was funny and he threw some sh-t on stage, and he got his a– socked,” said Pump. “B-tch, don’t you ever try to do no stupid sh-t while I’m performing you f–king dumb a–. Get your stupid a– socked. F–king goofy. I’m sorry to everybody the show got shut down or whatever. I’m gonna make it up to y’all. I love y’all.”
Though the earworm-producing rapper hasn’t shown the same penchant for fighting as some of his SoundCloud peers, his latest scuffle is eerily similar to something that happened to XXXTentacion earlier this year.
X was crowdsurfing at the Rolling Loud festival when a fan reached up and hit him. X beat him in the head multiple times with the microphone before the fight could be pulled apart. And just like Pump, he went on social media to defend himself.
“If you see footage of me punching somebody in their face at my show, it’s because he punched me in my face. I don’t know if they have it on camera but I got punched in my face while I was performing. So I responded and punched him in his face to protect myself. So, I’m letting everybody now. I’m beating time from now and letting everybody know. I got punched in my sh-t so I punched him back in his sh-t.”
The fight was X’s second at a concert. He punched a fan in the face at a smaller venue for a similar reason.
“I just know it’s people hating pretty much,” he told TMZ about that fight. “People just being haters. At the end of the day like, to be 19 years old and have this amount of success…there’s going to be a lot of problems. It’s not something I wasn’t ready for. So I mean, I’m just gonna take it like a man and be a man about the situation and do what I gotta do.”
