Detroit-based rapper, Danny Brown, allegedly received oral sex while he was onstage performing in Minneapolis, and his friend, rapper Kitty Pryde says that he was raped.
I’m mad that a person thought it was okay to pull another person’s pants down during their performance in front of about 700 other people. I’m mad that a person thought it was a good idea to perform a sex act on another person without their consent. I’m mad that nobody made her leave. I’m mad that Danny had to actually wonder what he was supposed to do at that point. I’m mad that when I went home and said I had no respect for that girl, I was attacked for being a “slut-shamer” (after literally leading a girl to his hotel room at 3AM at her request) and, even more outrageously, for being jealous of the girl who sucked his d*ck. I’m mad that when two dudes pulled my pants down onstage, other people got mad too, but when it happened to Danny the initial reaction was like one big high-five. I’m mad that people are treating “The Thing” like it’s some legendary event. I’m mad that even though they know exactly who the girl is, nobody in the media will even talk to her. I’m mad that I get a bunch of emails a day asking me to talk about my best friend’s “misogyny” and “classless behavior”, from people who have heard only rumors and seen only one very blurry and inconclusive iPhone photo.
So now we all sit in this van and play videogames and check our Twitter mentions and don’t speak at all of “The Thing,” because it’s all we’re thinking about and it’s very lame. First of all, accusing me of being jealous is hilarious, because I’m like getting married and whatever. Also I have no qualms with sluts. I love sluts. I’d walk a slut walk if I liked my body enough. Also, does Minnesota really have that little going on that this is the biggest headline they have? The answer is yes, but even so, why doesn’t Ricky Smiley or whoever just talk to this girl? I know why. It’s because everyone wants the option of blaming it on Danny, because people can’t accept the fact that a white girl raped a black dude in front of a bunch of people.
Pryde goes on to say that Brown couldn’t push her off without other rappers questioning his masculinity and that blaming someone for their “own molestation is a sh*tty thing to do.”
Brown, who has gained a cult following for his clever word-play, is also known for his highly sexual lyrics. And in today’s society, that usually leaves the door open for groupies to think they not only have permission to perform oral sex on him, but that it’s expected.
But the fact remains that, allegedly, the sex act was unprovoked and unwanted; and, male of female, that is rape.
There has been no talk of pressing charges and the woman in question has not identified herself.
