New York rapper Action Bronson has stepped forward to clear the air on allegations and reports which claim he sexually assaulted a woman during a concert this week.
Bronson jumped onto his Twitter page to set the story straight about an incident he ran into with a female concertgoer in Canada.
“HAHAHAHA SO IM A SEXUAL PREDATOR NOW. A STORY WRITTEN BY A NEWS PAPER THAT IS 90% ESCORTS 10% BULLSH*T.,” he tweeted October 2.
“I DID NOTHING WRONG.”
“HAHAHAH F*CK U STUPID PIECES OF SH*T WIT UR INTERNET BULLSH*T AND UR FAKE FEMINIST TRASH JUST CUZ U DONT LIKE SOMEONE.”
“Let’s get it straight. There was a girl on MY stage while I WAS PERFORMING. She was not brought on stage from the crowd.”
“She wanted me to pick her up like I have done in the past in MTL. She shook her t*ts. I put her down and hugged her.”
“IF THAT MAKES ME WRONG THEN F*CK IT.” (Action Bronson’s Twitter)
Bronson’s issues appear to stem from a published article by Now Toronto.
“During one song, Bronson brought a woman onstage, threw her over his shoulder, put her down in front of him, and proceeded to grope and shake her breast for…like, a long time. Then he tossed her away like a piece of trash. Who was this girl? We never learned. But if you’re Bronson, it doesn’t matter. She served the purpose of giving him a half-stiffy and almost-whole crowd-approval. (It should be noted that she was game to participate.) It irked me that she was a nameless nothing, un-introduced. And yeah, worse things happen all the time in strip clubs and behind closed doors etc., etc. But this was a concert that young people and women and everyone had paid money to attend. Bronson said he fucks with everyone who bought a ticket that night. Well, not everyone.” (Now Toronto)
The writer also dedicated a portion of the post-concert write-up on Bronson’s image.
“But that doesn’t mean Bronson gets a pass for being a pig. If it makes me a hypocrite to detest his cover art, lyrics and onstage antics – and the way he delivers it all without a lick of awareness, apology or humour – and still get behind Danny Brown (for all his controversy), then I’m a hypocrite. (For Bronson fans: he ended up previewing two songs from his forthcoming Bluechips 2, including one with a Tracy Chapman Give Me One Reason sample that sounded really great.) Between sets, I tried to shake the image, and the hurt that hundreds of young people with sisters and mothers and girlfriends were cheering for a woman to be molested and disrespected onstage. But I couldn’t.” (Now Toronto)
Back in August, Detroit rapper Danny Brown came clean on receiving oral sex on-stage during a live concert.
“I don’t know, maybe I had my d**k sucked a lot and I didn’t really understand what was going on because I was working, I was doing my job, so I didn’t really know what was going on until it was too late,” Brown explained. “I don’t know. I think it’s legal, I ain’t pressing no charges. [Did I finish?] No, no, no. No, I kept my composure. I did my thing. Yeah, I was working. To be honest, I be so zoned out while I’m rapping I don’t know what’s going on. Somebody could smack me and I probably wouldn’t even know.” (Shade 45)
