Whoa! Things got taken TOO far at a Skate Maloley concert when, what was supposed to be an enjoyable evening of music, turned into a vicious nightmare! The scary fight that broke out in NYC’s Webster Hall involved fans, security, and even the rapper himself. Watch the alarming video footage right here.
A Skate Maloley concert took a turn for the worst on Feb. 20 when an altercation occurred that resulted in fans AND the 21 year-old getting beaten up! Once the argument turned violent, security intervened and was forced to stop the show. Now fans are petitioning for the iconic concert hall to be shut down due to how security handled the incident — including their alleged brutal treatment of the rapper. Find out here exactly what went down!
Skate was in the middle of his hip-hop act at the East Village venue when security apparently wanted to stop the show after a fight between two young women broke out, according to CBS New York. “[Skate] grabbed like security like off of a fan, and that’s when he got like stomped to the ground,” one fan who attended the concert revealed. “They picked him up and threw him on the ground and starting kicking him,” another fan divulged.

Ouch! But what exactly was Skate doing grabbing at security like that? Apparently, as Skate revealed on Twitter later that night, he was trying to save his fans from getting choked out — by the guards! Sounds like a sticky situation, right? “When Skate finally came out, he had cuts all over him,” a fan gushed. “To see him like crying and get hurt like that — I just like wanted to cry with him.” Aw! What loyal fans you have, Skate.
Clearly Skate’s concert attendees were angry and shocked at how quickly things escalated during the show. So much so in fact that now they’re using social media to wage a war against Webster Hall. An online petition has even been started to shut the venue down in an effort to avoid the next fight and crackdown on security.
Skate is luckily ok and he took to Twitter to discuss the frightening incident. “Never would I have wanted this for my fans. I show nothing but love and peace to everyone I encounter. Tonight the devil was against us,” the artist tweeted. However, some feel that the incident is being blown out of proportion — after all, fights happen at concerts all the time. And so far, no assault complaints, no arrests, and no charges have been filed.
What do you think HollywoodLifers, was this brawl serious enough to shut Webster Hall down?
