A$AP Rocky Dismisses Yams Day Fiasco on Twitter: 'Glad Everyone Got Home Safe'
On Thursday night, A$AP Mob fans left the third annual Yams Day concert -- a celebration to honor the late A$AP Yams -- disappointed after a heated skirmish took place at the New York Expo Center. NYPD abruptly ended the concert and orchestrated an early evacuation to ensure the safety of everyone in attendance.
Rather than sulk in dismay at the early cancellation, A$AP Rocky seemed pretty upbeat Friday afternoon (Jan. 19) on Twitter following the show's fiasco.
"HAPPY YAM$ DAY 2018, THANK YOU TO ALL THE PERFORMERS THAT CAME OUT AND ALL THE PEOPLE THAT CAME TO CELEBRATE THE LEGACY OF A$AP YAM$ [--] GLAD EVERYBODY GOT HOME SAFE," he tweeted.
Many fans were vexed by Rocky's tweet, demanding their money back since the show ended earlier than anticipated. "You don’t think we deserve refunds?" wrote one Twitter user.
"Not cool... refund? Free ASAP show to whoever bought a ticket? We didn’t see ASAP perform," said another disgruntled fan.
The melee reportedly took place backstage, as chairs were thrown. Rapper 6ix9ine was allegedly in the mix, but he refuted those claims with an Instagram post following the show's conclusion. "Nothing BUT the up most RESPECT for this man," began 6ix9ine in his Instagram post dedicated to Yams.
"This is not about me, it's about YAMS. People will always mix my name up with something. This is the internet and this is what comes with fame. All I can do is sit here and explain stuff to you guys. I had nothing to do with tonight's disaster. I went live and posted it so you guys can see. THIS IS NOT ABOUT ME THIS DAY IS FOR YAMS.. Nothing but love and condolences to ASAP."
