RZA told The Associated Press at an event Friday (July 26) promoting the Hulu drama series Wu-Tang: An American Saga that he doesn’t condone violence, but celebrities have to protect themselves, and Rocky is not dangerous or a criminal.
He says he’s “disappointed in Sweden” and “disappointed that a judge cannot discern that this is not a man you hold hostage.”
Swedish prosecutors say Rocky and two others attacked a man there. Rocky says he acted in self-defense. He’s been in custody since July 3.
President Donald Trump has also spoken out against Rocky’s detention.
RZA says if Trump helped, “that’d be a beautiful thing.”
