DaBaby is one of the most in-demand rappers at the moment, so popping up for a performance at FREEWATER Block Party In New Orleans is pretty normal and cool overall. What’s not cool is a 10-ton security guard coldclocking an overzealous female fan in the middle of his set.
If you look at the video above provided by TMZ, it’s pretty clear that the fan landed the first “blow” in what appeared to be an attempt to grab DaBaby for a flick. Overall, the security guard didn’t need to get that rough with someone three times smaller, but it could be argued that he was doing his job in protecting the Charlotte-bred rap star at all costs. The show, which boasted a lineup that included RL Grime, Rico Nasty, and Shordie Shordie amongst other acts, was shut down after this according to TMZ’s account. Police weren’t called and therefore no one was arrested in relation to the incident. The girl did have to pick herself up and carry both her face and her shame out the door, unfortunately. Harsh isn’t even the word.
Was security just doing his job or was this excessive force? Watch the video then sound off with your thoughts over on our Facebook and Twitter!
