At a recent show, the New Orleans singer, who is currently prepping his sophomore album,
“This Thing Called Life”, for a 4th quarter release, called up a female fan on stage, and proceeded to make her supposedly pretty uncomfortable, standing behind her mid-song, and using his left hand to rub on her torso, grabbing at both of her breasts before settling on her right thigh, as seen in the above Instagram clip.
Someone in the audience recorded the incident and once the video hit the Internet, social media exploded! Some users called what he did
Others pointed out that the woman looked “embarrassed.” Some users slammed stans who defended August’s actions by saying the “Hold You Down” singer did nothing wrong.
However, August didn’t seem to care about what anyone said.
On Sept. 28, he posted a screenshot of a photo from Instagram user TaylinAndBailee. “Taylin” appears to be the woman in the video (though the account is now private.)
“Taylin” reportedly seemed okay with what happened that night and she supposedly posted a photo of her on stage with the alleged caption,
“last night don’t owe me anything ft. AugustAlsina.”
August then gave a shout out to “that beautiful young lady” before slamming all his “ignorant” and “weak” haters.
Though some, including the noticeably uncomfortable fan in question, seem to have viewed the act as an unwanted sexual advance, others on Twitter took Alsina’s side and found a reason to blame her, not him.
