Footage has hit the Internet showing Kid Cudi bringing out a fan he mistakenly punched last year during a performance in Canada.
Cudi brought out the fan during the recent Sasquatch Music Festival in Washington.
Kid Cudi made amends with the fan he punched during a concert last year (09) by bringing him onstage at the Sasquatch Music Festival in Washington at the weekend (30 May 10). Welcoming a thrilled Michael Sharpe to the stage, he told the crowd, "Remember that kid I punched in Vancouver? This is him. I brought him out here to hang out. It's all OK, he forgives me."

The victim, Michael Sharpe, recently said an apology took place during the Super Bowl weekend.
Michael Sharpe -- the man who claims Cudi's fist connected with his face during a December show in Vancouver -- tells TMZ the rapper called him up last weekend to finally apologize, and blamed the knuckle sandwich on the a-a-a-a-a-alcohol. Sharpe said Cudi also offered to fly him out to New York for an all-expenses paid weekend -- but so far, nothing is set in stone. (TMZ)
Details on the initial physical altercation spread online in early December.
The Internet is buzzing with a widely distributed video of what happened next. Cudi leaves the stage, climbs up on the crowd barrier and throws a punch. Rumors abound that the person he tagged wasn't the original offending party. A first-person report from the alleged victim is also being widely distributed online. In the story, the victim claims that wallet was thrown on stage by him after it had been returned to him in error and Cudi had said he would take it back if it wasn't his. Whatever the case, the video makes clear that someone was the target of the non-gangsta rapper's rabbit punch. (Kelowna News)
Shortly after the incident, Cudi exited his Monster's Ball tour opening slot for Lady Gaga.
