Flying Lotus took a moment out of his new tour debut to show support for his friend William Bensussen, aka The Gaslamp Killer. A woman named Chelsea Elaynne recently accused the latter of drugging and raping her and a friend, sharing a detailed account of her allegations via Twitter.

Flying Lotus played a song by the accused during his recent concert at the Hollywood Forever Cemetry before taking to the mic. "The Internet is a fucking liar," he said. "Ain't nobody judge and jury but the fucking law." The crowd then chants FlyLo's real first name, "Steve."

Billboard Dance has reached out to Flying Lotus for comment. Watch the clip and read Elaynne's full accusation below.
