Someone in the audience recorded the incident and once the video hit the Internet, social media exploded! Some users called what he did “disgusting” and “sexual harassment. Others pointed out that the woman looked “embarrassed.” Some users slammed stans who defended August’s actions by saying the “Hold You Down” singer did nothing wrong.
However, August didn’t seem to care about what anyone said. On Sept. 28, he posted a screenshot of a photo from Instagram user TaylinAndBailee. “Taylin” appears to be the woman in the video (though the account is now private.) “Taylin” reportedly seemed okay with what happened that night and she supposedly posted a photo of her on stage with the alleged caption, “last night don’t owe me anything ft. AugustAlsina.”
August then gave a shout out to “that beautiful young lady” before slamming all his “ignorant” and “weak” haters. Still, some argued that just because “Taylin” was allegedly okay with what August did, it still wasn’t okay to grab a woman like that.
The girl in August Alsina video looked visibly uncomfortable and embarrassed.
