A$AP Rocky has been caught on camera apparently slapping a female fan during a recent show in Sydney.

In the footage uploaded to YouTube, the Harlem rapper can be seen making his way through the crowd at his sold-out Hordern Pavillion show last Friday.

A female fan in a tier above him taps the artist on the head to get his attention. She then greets him by blowing a kiss. He responds with what appears to be a slap to the face.

The rapper has now completed his first tour of Australia, which visited Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth.

Footage of the incident has just emerged and is going viral. And it comes just weeks after another young American rapper got into hot water for his on-tour behavior Down Under.

Odd Future's Tyler, the Creator was filmed hurling a string of abusive words at a feminist campaigner during his show in Sydney, an incident that ultimately caught the attention of local cops.

Women’s group Collective Shout called on the federal immigration department to yank his working visa, which could make future Tyler tours Down Under a whole lot trickier to arrange.
