Last year, a fan wouldn't scream "Fuck Donald Trump" at YG's concert and the rapper brought him on stage in an effort to get the fan to participate in the chant.
Now the fan is speaking out.
Austin Joyner, the 17-year-old fan, said that he was humiliated by the rapper after he was booted from the stage.
Joyner explained that while he doesn't agree with the way YG attacks Trump, the artist has a right to say what he believes.
"I didn't want to present myself in that way. At no time did I mention anything regarding politics at the festival. As Americans, we have Freedom of Speech, and while I may not agree with YG's hatred towards President Trump, as a citizen, he's allowed to say what he wants," the young fan said.
"However, he crossed a line when he singled me out for not singing along and tried to humiliate me and get the entire crowd to turn against me in a threatening manner," he continued.
Joyner claims that YG made him a target after the incident. "You put a target on my back that night and made it unsafe for me at the festival," Joyner wrote in his statement. "Thankfully, two security guards came up to me after you kicked me off stage. They advised me to leave because they determined it was too risky for me to stay there at that point."
Ultimately, Joyner said he forgives YG for the entire ordeal.
"It has taken me a few months for me to fully forgive you, but I did not want to respond to the incident until I did forgive," he said. "I forgave you on January 4, 2020. I really don't want to hold on to those type of feelings."
Joyner even believes that one day, YG can make a Kanye West-style transition toward devout Christianity. "I believe that you could even make the type of transition Kanye West has made. In the end, I want you to succeed, and I want you to become the man God designed you to be."
At the show, YG pulled the young fan on stage when he saw him in the crowd.
“Listen, I spotted you out in the crowd. I asked you if you fucked with Donald Trump, you said, ‘You don't know,’” the rapper said. “So, since you don't know, I need you to make up your mind tonight.”
He asked the fan his name and told him to yell out “Fuck Donald Trump.” When he refused, YG kicked him out: “Fuck up outta here. He a Donald Trump supporter. Get his ass up outta here.”
