Big Sean is denying reports that a fan allegedly slapped him at a signing on Friday after a video of the incident went viral.
The rapper tweeted about the event on Saturday, saying, “Look I never comment on this type of sh-t but they can’t do me dirty and say a fan smacked me or no sh-t like that.”
He claimed that the fan was waiting in line for his album since 10 in the morning. After he signed the man’s copy and shook his hand, Big Sean said, “he tried to hit me off guard.”
Big Sean claimed that the FYE store in Flushing, New York, shut down the event after the incident occurred, although he claimed he wanted to continue on with the event. The video shows the fan struggling on the ground while police hold him down. Big Sean is seen in the background smiling and looking confused as cops order people out of the store.
The video went viral after a fan shared it on Twitter claiming that the tackled fan had “smacked” the rapper.
