XXXTentacion Explains Why He Punched That Fan In The Face [VIDEO]

By Daryl Nelson

A few days ago, we shared a video of XXXTentacion punching a guy in the face at his Salt Lake City show. He jumped on Instagram Live and explained why.

"I told everybody to wait to touch me, do not touch me, and if you touch me, I'm going to fucking punch you in your shit," he said. "I get off the stage, I walk down, the nigga puts his hand square in the middle of my chest. Now I don't know whether he was trying to grab my chain or whether he was trying to restrain me from going into the middle of the floor but either way, if someone puts his hand in the center of my chest, what the fuck am I supposed to do? Am I supposed to let this nigga touch me? Am I supposed to let this nigga assault me? I didn't know what the fuck he was going to do. So ya'll telling me basically fuck my life because I'm famous?"
After getting knocked out in San Diego and having a run-in with a fan, it seems that XXX is over the tour he's on, and he's ready for it to end.
