Following the release of his album in September last year, Professor Green was caught on camera slapping a student during a gig at a University fresher’s ball in October.

The gig took place at Durham University with a member of the audience allegedly hurling abuse at Green during his performance. In the clip Green can be seen approaching a member of the audience at the Student Union Welcome Ball. Seconds later he appears to hit out at the person before walking away and saying, “That’s what happens if you call me a cunt, but are we gonna have a fucking good time tonight or what?”

A spokesperson for the rapper confirmed that an incident took place, telling The Metro: “During Professor Green’s live show at Durham University on Friday night, a student verbally abused Green repeatedly and then went to strike him. Green reacted. The student was subsequently escorted out from the venue for being too drunk. Green carried on the show to perform his full set.”
