Pretty Flocko did not like that.

Filipino fans were pretty stoked to watch A$AP Rocky perform at a concert in Manila last night but some went a bit overboard. The American rapper’s performance at the club XYLO in Taguig City was interrupted after someone tried taking one of kicks while he was on stage.

Lawryeng Castro, a party ambassador for XYLO shared a video of what went down on his Instagram account today.

“Check it out here how someone from the audience tried to steal @asaprocky shoe that pissed him off, ruined the vibe of the whole show and kinda forced Prefty (sic) Flacko to end the show so friggin ASAP,” his caption reads.

The video shows A$SAP Rocky sitting on the DJ booth when someone from the crowd suddenly grabs onto his white Nike Air Force and pulls it off his foot.

He was visibly angry and took the shoe back from the fan.

He kept pointing at the unidentified fan as Sheck Wes’ “Mo Bamba” played in the background. He also flexed his index finger repeatedly, motioning the fan to approach him.

At some point, A$AP Rocky says: “[What] the fuck is you doing crawling on the floor, stupid?”

Concertgoer Princess Jao told Coconuts Manila through a Twitter message that the incident happened around 2am today.

Jao said the singer was “super pissed.”

“He wasn’t rapping anymore. I think he called security and his manager too,” Jao said. “He was pointing at the person like ‘come on.'”

Jao said that when the fan, a guy, was being escorted out of the premises by security, he tried to give his whiskey as a peace offering to the rapper. But that was a little too late.

Jao said that the singer went behind the stage after the incident. “We thought he wasn’t going to perform anymore because he looked so mad and pissed already. But he did, eventually. I guess he just composed himself and wore his shoe again.”

She thinks the incident made the rapper cut his performance short. The concert was supposed to end at 5am but instead ended at 3am.

XYLO has yet to issue a statement on the incident.
