Desiigner Throws Punch at Heckler for Calling Him Future
Since the very beginning of his commercial career, Desiigner has been dogged by folks claiming he was a Future rip-off. While it was probably flattering at first, it's easy to see how it could get annoying, and Desiigner let loose his frustrations over such comments after one fan shouted the Atlanta rapper's name at him during a recent concert. After absorbing too much trash talk, the rapper attacked.
According to TMZ, the G.O.O.D. Music artist was in the middle of a show when one attendee began calling him a Future knockoff. In video from the incident, we can see a man call Desiigner Future. From there, the 2016 XXL Freshman asked him to clarify before he threw a punch at the heckler. The punch missed, but there's a good chance the message was sent.
This video surfaces in the midst of a rough couple days for Desiigner. Traveling from Denmark to Sweden for his ongoing European tour this past Monday, the rapper claimed that a Scandinavian Airlines flight attendant threw him off the plane for no apparent reason. He addressed the situation during a session of Instagram Live, and by the end of the session, he called for fans to boycott the airline.
In a statement given to The Blast, Scandinavian Airlines claimed that "persons" (aka, Desiigner) had behaved in a manner that threatened their crew and other passengers. Desiigner has yet to speak on their statement.
