Alternative rapper Danny Brown is used to performing for crowded clubs, like his sold-out Minneapolis show on Friday (April 26), but he’s answering to a much larger audience in the wake the allegedly X-rated performance.
Music fans have taken to social media, demanding answers from the rapper and posting personal accounts of the concert, where the rapper reportedly engaged in oral sex with a fan in the front of the crowd.
A Redditor who claims to have been at the show described the incident in detail, saying that Brown had been getting close to “random girls” in the front of the crowd throughout his performance, including the woman involved in the incident at hand.
“Then I’m behind her and I start getting pushed against her by the crowd shifting,” the Redditor wrote. “It [was] horrible and I hope you guys will be donating to my future therapy sessions, but also I came back with a story. He rapped the entire time during [it] too.”
Brown’s Twitter followers are using the site as a platform to ask questions and voice their opinions, with fellow rapper Kendrick Lamar even chiming in.

Brown reportedly confirmed that the allegations are true, however his response has since been deleted, according to Minneapolis alt-weekly City Pages.
Meanwhile, some people are outraged at the inappropriate act, while Brown takes their comments in stride by retweeting some of them, presumably to capture some ironic humor in the midst of controversy.

Brown did respond to one question, only saying that the incident is a “rumor” without officially confirming or denying it.

Concert opener Kitty (formerly known as Kitty Pryde) took to Tumblr to pen her take on the incident, which, according to her, did in fact happen. She called it “a problem with inappropriate fans who cross boundaries like crazy,” and defended her tourmate’s actions.
“What is Danny supposed to do? Scream at a girl onstage while he’s performing?” She wrote in the blog post. “…I know him pretty well, so I know he doesn’t wanna f*** up his image by running away from sexual advances from girls…I also know him well enough to feel like he’s probably pretty embarrassed about it. Nobody wants to be publicly exposed and that girl is wrong for doing what she did.”
