Fan allegedly beaten up by Odd Future receives cyber threats
Chassan Rasagi claims the rap collective attacked him at San Antonio show
17-year-old Chassan Rasagi filed a police report after he was allegedly attacked by the group after jumping onstage at their San Antonio gig on December 8, where he was thrown back and forth between the stage and the crowd. You can watch a video of the incident below.
Odd Future defended their actions by sending a series of screen-grabs of tweets that they claim are from Rasagi's Twitter account in which he seemingly acknowledges that he threw the first punch, and mentioned the paycheck he would get from suing the group.
Now, according to TMZ, Rasagi is fearing for his life after being on the receiving end of violent threats. Among the tweets sent to the 17-year-old's Twitter account were warnings that he will "get his prepubescent face smashed again" and some fans wished Odd Future "shoved a mic" up his "white ass".
The rap collective have been involved with several other run-ins at their live shows. Last year, 'Left Brain' Vyron Turner denied that he had slapped a female photographer at a festival in New Orleans. A gig in Boston earlier this year was shut down by the police. The group also caused controversy at Leeds Festival after beating a bound and gagged blow-up doll onstage.
