At a concert in Australia over the weekend, Earl Sweatshirt punched a fan who violated his “personal space.” In the video above, the fan comes up by behind Earl mid-song and wraps the rapper in his arms. The MC turns around and hits him twice before security shows up and throws the kid unceremoniously off the side of the stage, adding in a few kicks for good measure. The fans all seem to enjoy the violence. Earl wrote on Twitter, “keep your hands to yourself and don't sneak up on niggas in the middle of soul bearing.” “I'm not a tough guy!!” he added. “I don't like my personal space breached just like you. [J]ust respect niggas out here man not just me respect everybody.”
