The most un-Canadian incident in the history of Canada happened last night and the world is still trying to figure out what happened.
Rapper Pusha T – who made some of 2018’s biggest headlines beefing with beloved Canadian rapper Drake – had to cancel his Toronto performance last night after the audience – even by United States standards – became violently unruly.
Who would have guessed publicly dragging a major city’s most beloved modern musician would have such repercussions?
Last night mid-performance at Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall, Pusha was interrupted by a barrage of beer tossed at the stage, followed by – according to multiple accounts – paint and water. The alleged antagonists then rushed the stage, seemingly in efforts to attack Pusha. A fight broke out and three people were taken to the hospital.
Not one to be deterred, after the dust settled, Pusha returned to the stage and told the crowd that the beer-tossers were being paid to disrupt the show, and then performed “Infrared.” Local police proceeded to shut down the show, ending the evening around the 40 minute mark.
The story is currently dominating Toronto’s news cycle, and the streets of Toronto are echoing with a tsunami of “sorry.”
We’ll keep you updated as this story develops.
