President Donald Trump sounds “this” close to wearing a #FreeRocky t-shirt. The head of state has come forward to go off on Sweden for refusing to release A$AP Rocky over a controversial alleged attack.
Trump went to Twitter Thursday and didn’t hold back on letting loose on the Sweden prime minister.
According to reports, a Swedish prosecutor has charged Rocky with assault related to a Stockholm incident.
The 30-year-old — whose real name is Rakim Mayers — has been in custody since July 3, following a confrontation in the Swedish capital on June 30. The rapper’s lawyer, Slobodan Jovicic, has maintained he was defending himself after being assaulted and that his client is innocent. “We think it was self-defense, but the prosecutor has chosen to go with the injured party’s version,” Jovicic said, adding that his client is “very disappointed” that the prosecutor has “chosen to go with the other party’s version” of events.

A$AP Mob’s A$AP Ferg went to Instagram Wednesday and spoke on Rocky’s behalf in light of all the support he’s received since getting locked up.
This week, the man who allegedly provoked Rocky’s camp did not get charged.
The man involved in an altercation with A$AP Rocky that led to the rapper’s arrest and detainment in a Swedish jail will not be charged after he was “suspected of molestation and assault,” Swedish prosecutors announced Monday. Along with investigating the rapper, the Swedish Prosecution Authority also launched a preliminary investigation into two men who had been following Rocky prior to the incident. (Rolling Stone)
