A Pusha-T concert in Toronto closed abruptly on Tuesday night after some concertgoers threw liquids on the rapper and stormed onto the stage, starting an intense fight that ended up closing the whole affair. According to reports, a man was stabbed after the fight, and some media reported that he is now in a critical condition.
The videos of the altercation in the Danforth Music Hall circulated in the social networks immediately after the event, which untied the reactions of "bro, WTF" in the EE. UU Continental and (obviously) parts of Canada.
The disturbance began shortly after 10:00 pm, with some audience members throwing fluids onto the stage. According to WTHR, a mixture of water, beer and paint was thrown on stage during half of Pusha T's performance. The attack seemed coordinated, with a viewer saying that Pusha "was singing a song and just at the bar where it says something similar to getting wet / soaked … about 10 [men] He threw water.
And you thought that throwing a shoe in Fashion Week was messy.
Things only intensified from there, with a handful of people assaulting the stage, falling on the barricades and fighting with the security and crew members of Pusha T. The rapper, who is also president of G.O.O.D. from Kanye West. The music label was not involved in the fight, presumably he left the stage while things got out of hand.
However, Pusha returned to the stage, and like everyone in your group chat, blamed the local hero Drake for the riot.
According to Vulture, Pusha squeezed a little of his label "Infrared", before accusing Drake of paying people to attend the concert "and throw beer."
The police closed the concert shortly after. But, sadly, when the concert ends is when things really turned to the left. As City News Toronto reports, more fights emerged as people left. There are conflicting reports about how many people were injured and how seriously. The City News, citing police, writes that a person was stabbed and is now in critical condition. Another local store, The Hamilton Spectator, writes that three people were hospitalized for injuries that do not threaten their lives.
While everyone assumes, especially since it happened in Toronto, that Drake is somehow behind the attack, it is important to keep in mind that there is no real evidence to indicate it. And if this episode is rooted in some feelings hurt in some bars, I hope we all have clear what terrible, shit and how stupid it is. How fragile must a group of adult donkeys be to even begin this level of drama?
It is not known yet when any of the men involved will leave their feelings.
