Wifisfuneral was allegedly jumped during XXXTentacion's set at the House of Blues in Houston Wednesday night. In social media footage of the incident, the Florida rapper is seen leaping into the crowd during XXXTentacion's set for a quick crowd-surfing session before reportedly being attacked by unidentified members of the audience:
XXXTentacion briefly halted the show in an effort to identity those responsible, but the attempt proved unsuccessful, according to Rolling Loud Fest co-founder and Wifi manager Tariq Cherif:
Wifisfuneral also posted about the incident on Twitter, calling out the "pussy ass" individuals who jumped him. He also clarified that the jumping was not a result of his crowd-surfing. "I was actually set up," he claimed.
Wifisfuneral had performed earlier that night, marking the inaugural night of XXXTentacion's Revenge Tour. According to a rep, Wifi has since been treated and given the go-ahead to resume his touring obligations. The tour continues Thursday night at Gas Monkey Live in Dallas.
In an exclusive statement to Complex, Wifi said he had been targeted by a group of people in Houston who also allegedly jumped other audience members:
Let me clarify: I was targeted by a group of old man hater goons who had been acting shady the whole night. I found out from fans that these pussy-ass n*ggas robbed and jumped some fans earlier in the night and seemed like they were looking to fight someone the entire show. Fuck them though, we good and we still lit. See you soon, Dallas!
