…and he finished his set.
XXXTentacion‘s nationwide tour kicked off yesterday at the House of Blues in Houston, Texas and made headlines for a reason you might not expect. Supporting act and fellow South Florida rapper Wifisfuneral rightfully took a stage-dove into the crowd during the show, apparently pissing off a few fans by accidentally landing atop of them. Their reaction was totally uncalled for, as a large group of concertgoers allegedly beat Wifi unconscious due to the untimely dive. In the video below, can see Wifi getting jumped and his limp body being passed to the front of the crowd following the attack. The Broward County native took to Twitter later in the evening to assure fans he’s safe and sound, and will still be joining X on the upcoming tour dates. Wifi is a real one, and I’m happy nothing serious happened to the blossoming rapper.
It goes without saying that this should not be happening at concerts; what the fuck were these shitheads possibly thinking? Mosh all you want, throw some punches if necessary, but don’t fuckin beat someone to the ground. That’s absolutely uncalled for and should be met with some serious repercussions. The video below is hard to watch, but will give you a good idea of the severity of the assault.
