Tour support act describes incident as "sexual assault" on Detroit rapper
Following yesterday’s news that Danny Brown received oral sex onstage while performing in Minneapolis, the rapper has been defended by his friend and tour support Kitty Pryde, who described the situation as “an actual sexual assault”.
The incident took place at a concert in Minneapolis, Minnesota last Friday (April 26) where Brown was appearing at the Triple Rock Social Club on his ‘The Old & Reckless’ tour. Reports suggest that Brown spent much of the show being groped by fans on the front row until one took things a stage further. The unnamed girl reportedly flashed the rapper before performing fellatio on him. Brown continued to rap throughout the experience.
Writing a lengthy blog post on Noisey explaining what happened that night and attempting to contextualise the incident, fellow rapper Pryde wrote: “I’m mad that a person thought it was okay to pull another person’s pants down during their performance in front of about 700 other people. I’m mad that a person thought it was a good idea to perform a sex act on another person without their consent. I’m mad that nobody made her leave. I’m mad that Danny had to actually wonder what he was supposed to do at that point. I’m mad that when I went home and said I had no respect for that girl, I was attacked for being a ‘slut-shamer’ (after literally leading a girl to his hotel room at 3am at her request) and, even more outrageously, for being jealous of the girl who sucked his dick.”
Detailing her own experiences of the Minneapolis concert, Pryde continued: “I’m mad that when two dudes pulled my pants down onstage, other people got mad too, but when it happened to Danny the initial reaction was like one big high-five. I’m mad that people are treating ‘The Thing’ like it’s some legendary event. I’m mad that even though they know exactly who the girl is, nobody in the media will even talk to her.”
Continuing, Pryde described the incident as a sexual assault, writing: “Anybody who is exaggerating this tale to climax is also a lying fool, and to call it a blow job is even going a bit far because it was probably the fastest thing I’ve ever seen. ‘The Thing’ was not a thing that Danny facilitated — it was an actual sexual assault, and somehow nobody gives a fuck about that but me.”
After hearing reports of the evening’s event, Kendrick Lamar sent Brown an incredulous message via Twitter: “@xdannyxbrownx u really just got the head on stage stanny???” Danny Brown, replied: “
