ASAP Bari became the butt of several jokes on Twitter after a video of him getting into a physical altercation with someone in his Harlem neighborhood surfaced online, and now he has a response to all the trolling.

In the video that was shared on Tuesday, Bari is seen squaring up with someone on a basketball court in Harlem with a crowd of people hyping up the altercation. Several people in the crowd told the man to knock Bari out while a second person comes into the fight and swings at the estranged ASAP Mob member.

"Dumb ass n***a, come over here doing that dumb shit," one person in the background yelled while ASAP Bari took several punches. More people swung at Bari as he moved around the court and eventually got help from two people that got in between him and the group that threw punches.

The video went viral on Twitter, with many making fun of Bari for getting jumped in his own neighborhood. However, it didn't tell the whole story as the VLone founder eventually issued a response to all the jokes and shared some post-fight footage from the person who seemingly started the fight. 

"Everyday it's something new with me from niggas hating on me to niggas rapper about me the best thing to do is have a great meal and get ready for another pay day," Bari wrote before giving his side of what happened in the fight. 

"This last time talking about it. A n***as stole my chain two years ago out car without me know and I seen him so I knocked him out and his n***as jumped in," Bari wrote. "Would have jump me to after the way I knocked him out. I'm so gangster I was solo with my jewelry on. These the same n***as who put money in my pocket. I'm real Harlem."

ASAP Bari then shared a video of the person who fought him, showing his shirt stained with blood, a cut on his lip, and claiming Bari had a knife. 

Bari wrote as a caption that he only used his hands and shared another video zooming into the person's eye and stating, "The glasses not gone block the black eye." He also shared another picture of G Herbo, claiming the people that fought Bari were "soft as hell" and didn't want to "run up" on him.

This isn't the first time ASAP Bari has been seen on video getting into an altercation. In April, footage of him almost getting into a fight with Lil Uzi Vert surfaced online. And things don't seem to be going well for him with the ASAP Mob. 

Bari dissed ASAP Rocky last year and said his next album is going to be trash. Rocky seemed to clap back at Bari during his performance at Rolling Loud Miami when he changed the lyrics to "Telephone." 

"Call up young lord ASAP Bari, he a bitch," he rapped during his verse of the song.
