Big Sean is speaking out after an incident at a CD signing in Queens, New York, on Friday, in which he was allegedly attacked by a belligerent fan, causing the signing to be shut down. Following the incident, Big Sean took to Twitter to refute reports that he was slapped in the face.
“Look I never comment on this type of s**t but they can’t do me dirty and say a fan smacked me or no s**t like that,” tweeted the “Bounce Back” rapper.
“Some guy waited in line in the cold since 10 a.m., bought my CD (and) when I signed his CD and shook his hand he TRIED to hit me off guard,” Big Sean explained in a series of tweets discussing what happened. “The dude was released from a mental hospital last week, has a long record of mental illness and was off his meds. Very serious issues.”
Big Sean concluded by apologizing to fans who had showed up at the signing, explaining he wanted to keep it going “but the store shut it down.”
Video of the aftermath of the attempted attack was posted on YouTube, showing police officers subduing and handcuffing the suspect.
