New Orleans, LA – Earl Sweatshirt lost at least one fan this weekend after he slapped a phone out of their hand. A group of men spotted the Odd Future alum wandering around (what looks like) New Orleans’ French Quarter and attempted to take a video of him. But that’s when things went south.
As Earl approaches the camera, he reaches out and hits the phone, knocking it to the ground. The fan replies, “That’s fucked up, yo. Get the fuck outta here. Fuck that mother fucker.”
The fan tweeted the entire interaction with the caption, “When you want a pic with one of your favorite rappers since day 1 and he’s a dick.”

On Saturday (March 23), Vince Staples, who’s always down for social media commentary, retweeted the video and made a generous offer.
“If you feel disrespected I can get you a fade from the homie just let me know,” he wrote.
Mr. Sweatshirt has yet to address the incident publicly — and probably won’t.
But watch the clip below anyway.
