If you paid to watch an artist perform, you shouldn’t be putting extra effort to disrupt the performance. That includes stepping on stage for no reason. Earl Sweatshirt had to give a fan his just desserts for that reason.
Not only did a fan manage to get on stage, but he also managed to hug Earl from behind. Earl, who was not cool with that at all, escaped his grasp and knocked him out with a left hook. This was during “Hive,” so you know fans were pissed. Trash Talk member Garrett Stevenson helped out (by kicking the fan) to get him off stage.
Earl joins Run The Jewels and Action Bronson as artists who had to take manners into their own hands when dealing with stage trespassers. Do artists have to train themselves to do so because security doesn’t do its job?
