Roddy Ricch doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to fan interactions, and his latest encounter almost put him in yet another tense situation.
Over the weekend, Roddy was out and about when a fan spotted him and requested a picture. In a video that has been circulating online, the fan asked “The Box” rapper for a photo before attempting to put his arm around him.
As the fan reached his arm over Roddy to take the picture, the Compton native pushed him away before his security intervened. The fan looked shocked and hit a pose while looking back at Roddy, who reluctantly obliged to pose for the shot — with enough distance between him and the fan.
In the background of the video, people can be heard asking Roddy for “one picture” and “a selfie” while the whole interaction went down.

This isn’t the first time Roddy Ricch has had an altercation while out in public. Last December, footage showed Roddy becoming frustrated with paparazzi while handling errands. As the rapper was loading his car up with a baby seat, a determined paparazzo approached him but was cut off by his security.
The burly security guard told the cameraman Roddy was “doing something private,” but he persisted in trying to get the rapper’s attention and kept the camera rolling. The guard politely asked the cameraman one more time to leave, and as he obliged telling Roddy it was good to see him, the rapper flipped his middle finger as a parting gift.
The paparazzo then returned to the other side of the street when Roddy Ricch began to walk towards him, telling him to put the camera down. The man tried telling Roddy he saw him at a recent event, but the Compton native wasn’t having it and continued to plead with him to turn the camera off so he can “talk to [him] like a man.”
“You was the first dude that walked up on me. You walked up on me, bro. Don’t walk up on me, n-gga,” Roddy warned. “This is real life, don’t walk up on me. You walking up on my car, bro. I’m handling my personal business; you walking up on me, bro. This ain’t that. I’m living real life. Leave me the fuck alone, real shit. Leave me the fuck alone!”
Last July, at the Openair Frauenfeld Festival in Switzerland, Roddy’s performance was interrupted by an overzealous fan who rushed the stage.
The fan ran past him and the rapper’s microphone fell out of his hand as a result of the slight push, and Roddy wasted no time confronting them. Two security guards were handling the situation when Roddy started kicking the fan being moved off the stage.
