Rapper 50 Cent has come under fire after he threw a microphone at a female patron, injuring her.
Daily Loud reports, “50 Cent is now a suspect in a battery case after throwing a mic at a woman which hit her in the head at a show.” The incident happened during his performance at the Cryto.com Arena on Wednesday.
In the video making rounds online, Fif first threw a malfunctioning mic mildly. Then, he was handed another one, which did not work. He then launched the second microphone in the same direction, and it hit a patron in the head.
USA TODAY reports that the rapper’s attorney, Scott Leemon, denied claims his client intended to strike a fan. In a statement to the publication, Leemon said he spoke with police about the incident. He said,
“Let’s be very clear, as I told LAPD this afternoon, my client Curtis would never intentionally strike anyone with a microphone. Anyone saying something different doesn’t have all the facts and is misinformed.”
