A$AP Rocky Fan Arrested for Threatening to Blow Up The Swedish Embassy in DC
Yeah…that’s not it.
While U.S. officials have taken their time to liberate A$AP Rocky from his Swedish imprisonment, the rapper’s fans are not willing to be as patient.
According to Billboard, on Tuesday, a woman staged quite a scene at the Swedish embassy in Washington, DC, threatening to “blow this motherfucker up” after knocking over some furniture and refusing to leave. It was Rebecca Kanter’s latest and most severe attempt to advocate for the release of the rapper, who has been awaiting trial in Sweden for an assault charge since July 3rd.

Per an affidavit, Kanter also allegedly tossed Coca-Cola at the door of the embassy a day prior and posted about it on her socials, stating: “[Why] isn’t it breaking news that I defiled the House of Sweden last night, that I vandalized the World Bank, that I vandalized the IMF… [why] aren’t I getting press for A$AP[?]” The fan was charged with injuring and damaging property of a foreign government, refusing to depart a foreign embassy, and two counts of refusing to depart a foreign embassy. She was released on a $1,000 bond.

Rocky’s case has been at the forefront of the newsfeed for the weeks since the incident. It even elicited support from the president, who “vouched” for the rapper in discussions with the Swedish PM, Stefan Löfven. No word yet on when he’s due in court.
