There is a video starting to make the blog rounds this morning of Joseph Edgar Foreman, aka 'Rapper' Afro-man, laying down a devastating right-hook to a woman who got onstage during a free concert in Biloxi, Mississippi, and began dancing with him in the middle of his guitar solo.
Foreman was obviously arrested for assault but has since been released on a $330 bond.
He claimed he was unaware as to if it was a man or a woman, but that he instinctively reacted to someone invading his stage. You can see video of the incident above, but trigger Warning: It vividly depicts a woman being punched in the face.
Afroman is best known for his early-millennium hit “Because I Got High,” probably being played inside a frat house near you right now.
So what do you think? Do musicians have the right to attack audience members who get onstage without permission, (it's happened to me many times over - see video below at 08:20) ...or, do you think Afro-man was taking this way over the line?
