A nasty brawl broke out this morning as the SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas was drawing to a close.
Spinner.com is reporting that A$ AP Rocky and his crew brawled with drunken fans at a downtown warehouse venue.
The conflict started after A$ AP’s crew, who were there to perform, started stage-diving and crowd surfing. One of the crew member’s doo-rag was snatched off of his head. When he got back onstage the crew demanded it be returned. Someone in the crowd responded by throwing a beer can onstage. At that point A$ AP tried to stop the situation from escalating by warning the crowd not to throw anything else onstage. That’s when another beer can was thrown. A$ AP issued one more warning that if anything else was thrown things would pop off.
Of course a fan threw another can and the brawl ensued with the entire A$ AP Mob of about a dozen people hopping into the crowd and brawling with fans.
Most fans scattered, but a few troublemakers stood toe to toe with A$ AP’s crew.
Security eventually broke up the fight and cleared the venue. One fan reportedly had a gash on their head.
