Just like Action Bronson, Earl Sweatshirt is protective of his stage and the people who try to bum-rush it.

During the Sydney, Australia stop last night at Max Watts on The 2015 Ready To Leave Now Tour, a fan thought it would be funny if he tried to hug Earl from the back. Nope. That shit isn’t gonna fly, fam.

Someone from the crowd caught Earl handling the kid with a mean left hook that immediately took him down. Afterwards, Garrett Stevenson of Trash Talk reportedly helped Earl literally kick the fan off stage. He gave him a body blow with his foot for good measure.

Moral of this story? Don’t mess with Earl.
