Danny Brown and Kitty Pryde are touring the country together, and over the weekend, during a concert in Minneapolis, MN, a female fan in the audience gave Brown a blowjob, all while he continued rapping on stage. Here’s how someone who was in the crowd that night described the argument-stopper:
Okay so this is how it all went down, I was near the front row and all night Danny had been going up to the crowd and having random girls touch his d*ck through his pants. Then this girl in front of me starts flashing him and he goes up to her and grabs her t*ts. Then all of a sudden gets up close pulls his shirt up a little and she start blowing him. Then I’m behind her and I start getting pushed against her by the crowd shifting. (Via)
I’ll refrain from including the picture, but if you want to see it, here you go. Anyway, Vice’s Noisey blog asked Pryde, who we’re not exactly a big fan of, to share her thoughts on what transpired, and what she wrote was actually pretty great and an interesting look at what goes on once a concert is finished.
But we all know what happened last week at our show in Minneapolis, an event that we’re currently referring to in the bus as “The Thing,” because we all kind of want to forget about it. Ever since it happened the universal respect Danny commanded has splintered into two groups: one side thinking he’s way more awesome than they should, and the other thinking he’s an awful misogynist and hack. This bothers me a lot. Him too, but mostly me. I’m mad as hell, to be honest.
It’s obvious that the reason nobody cares is because a girl did it to a boy. I said this on my blog, but I’ll say it again here—I had my pants ripped off onstage, and didn’t know what to do either because being naked in front of 1000 people is incredibly scary and there’s not much quick decision-making happening in your brain during that sort of thing. Now I’m prepared to kick a motherf*cker in the teeth if he touches me at all, and I equip myself with giant boots for that reason. What is Danny supposed to do? The girl was at mouth-to-dick level already and to push her away, he would’ve had to either pushed her face or kicked her, and even the most gentle of either motion would immediately be labeled “abuse” by anyone watching. Guys pushing girls is not a good look when people are taking photos. So what was Danny supposed to do, other than back away, which he did? And if he had figured out a way to gently push the girl off him immediately without looking like he was smacking her in the face, he’s faced with attacks on his masculinity by every douchebro in the building. Yo dude, you don’t want your dick sucked, bro? Are you gay? Haha you’re gay you don’t want girls to suck your dick haha gay dude bro man swag! And that’s a rapper’s literal nightmare. (Via)
There are about a million things going on here — chief among them, what would this story be like if a guy surprised a girl with oral sex in front of a crowd? — and Pryde deserves credit for bringing attention to a small incident that’s part of a bigger issue. Kitty Pryde: Blogger already inspires more confidence than Kitty Pryde: Rapper.
