Wale Talks to MTV About Raw Altercation

As we reported after Raw this week, rapper Wale got into a physical altercation with a fan during the show in Washington D.C., and after Raw MTV caught up with Wale, who had the following to say regarding the incident:

A random fan reportedly said to Wale, 'I'mma kick your ass. I better not see you here,'" the rapper told MTV News on Tuesday.

"I was like, 'Yo, is this you?' And one thing lead to another, and I just kind of mushed him a little bit," said Wale. "Honestly, if there wasn't kids right there, it would have went a little bit differently, but I just wanted to be conscious of them. It's not to say it was the right decision. But in the moment, you know." "People get it misconstrued," he went on. "Like, 'Oh, you're so butt-hurt.' It's not even that. I come from a place where when we was at the lunch table and n—as was jonesing on each other, I'll respond. I'm gonna have something better, too. And now we've come to a place where, if you respond, you're a bitch. Somebody could say 'F— you' 100 times, if I say 'f— you' back, then I'm a bitch. And people be like, 'You're famous, you shouldn't care.' "

Wale concluded, "I care what people say because I try to be a man of the people. I just don't understand, [in] society, why we champion people like that in this day and age. I remember when people used to admire real people that stand behind their words or are stand-up men. I come from that. I had to address him as such. It wasn't nothing really serious."
