Those Who Live in Glass Houses...
It seems like we’re seeing more and more examples of how crazy concerts can get nowadays. We’ve got things like XXXTentacion getting punched in the face, then him punching a fan in the face. We all remember when Kevin Gates kicked one of his fans in the face.
We’re only halfway through the year, and we already have the best one ever when it comes to concert drama. This time around it was a situation that involved rapper Russ and his crew. One fan thought it was a good idea to throw ice onto the stage… think again!
Russ & Crew
Things got a little bit interesting when Russ and his crew got into a recent predicament. With the recent XXXTentacion situations, this doesn’t really surprise us at all.
For those who don’t know… XXX was performing on stage recently when he was absolutely floored by a fan that got on the stage. Around a week later, he was filmed in the crowd, threatening to hit anyone who touched him. A fan put his hand on the rappers shoulder, and XXX gave him a hook to the jaw.
Taking to Twitter
In the video of Russ’ incident, you can see a man looking directly at Russ and the camera man before he does a 180 and lands a huge blow to a fan who was directly behind him. We didn’t know much about the situation or why the guy punched the fan in the first place, but Russ cleared things up a bit on social media.
“If you throw ice and sh*t at me you’re gonna get confronted. Sh*t is not as sweet as you think. Don’t throw a stone and hide your hand,” the rapper tweeted. The tweet was sent as a response to the fan that uploaded the video of the punch, so we know exactly what was going on.
The fans didn’t seem to really know how to respond to the tweet, and there were some mixed feelings as a result. While some fans liked the action, others questioned why he had to go to such drastic measures.
“Ice? He had someone punched for ice, good music but a egomaniac,” one fan tweeted. Another fan said, “Russ didn’t tell his guy to punch him, he said ‘do what you feel is right’ and well we saw what happened.”
It seems like there are two sides of the story. While Russ may not have actually told his buddy to punch him, we all saw how that ended up.
