It looks like a disgruntled fan decided he wanted to assault Big Sean. On Friday (Feb. 17), at a meet-and-greet autograph signing in Queens, N.Y., the Detroit rhymer was slapped in the face by an unidentified man.
Although the assault wasn't captured on video, footage has surfaced of the culprit being arrested by police. During the arrest, the man yells "You p---y, n----!" and shouted out Birdman. As police officers escorted the man out of the building in handcuffs, he told Sean to "tell Jay Z what's up."
Of course, after the incident the event was canceled and police dispersed the huge crowd standing outside waiting to see the G.O.O.D. Music rhymer.
Although Big Sean took a small L, he bounced back. The rapper appeared uninjured and in good spirits. He left the area in an awaiting vehicle and waved to the fans before driving off.
No word on why the man wanted to assault the "Bounce Back" rapper.
