Tyga Cancels Show in Sweden Following A$AP Rocky Arrest

Tyga Cancels Show in Sweden Following A$AP Rocky Arrest

"Video footage shows the assailants following Rocky and his colleagues, even cutting off where they are trying to walk sometimes, while Rocky pleads to them that he does not want any issues".

Swedish authorities have denied these claims, but that hasn't stopped celebs and social media from lending their support.

On Friday, Espaillat, a New York Democrat, said he was pushing to help Rocky come home.

"Several stars, including Shawn Mendes, Cara Delevigne, Nicki Minaj, and more advocated for the rapper's release by sharing the Change.org petition titled, "#JusticeForRocky Demand that Rocky be released from Swedish Officials". A video has surfaced in which one could easily recognize Rocky hitting the two men.

"So every time something happens because I'm Black I gotta stand up?"

A$Ap Rocky has been forced to cancel the remainder of his July (19) tour dates as he remains locked up in a Swedish jail. I can't relate. I'm in the studio; I'm in these fashion studios; I'm in these bitches' drawers. It means roughly: "A person who physically attacks someone or exposes someone to disruptive contacts or exposes someone to other ruthless actions", a rep confirmed with Page Six.

Chris Brown took to Instagram to let his fans know he is supporting A$AP Rocky. A source close to Rocky's situation told TMZ that there had been feces hurled about and left uncleaned as well as food not fit for human consumption. According to witnesses, two men followed the rapper and his crew down a street and accused them of breaking a pair of headphones. That's when the two groups of men started brawling.

ASAP Rocky has been held in Stockholm since 2 July and is under investigation for assault and battery. "Upon being detained, Rocky was denied his request to counsel which is in violation of Article 36 of the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations, to which Sweden is a signatory", the petition said. He was arrested by Swedish authorities and has been held in custody for a while now as they continue to investigate Rocky's charges.
