West Coast rap group Odd Future is well known for their reckless behavior on stage. However, one member might have taken things too far in New Orleans this past weekend. According to the Chicago Tribune, Odd Future's Left Brain is being accused of hitting a female photographer during the Voodoo Experience Festival there this past Sunday (October 30).
Apparently the alleged attack happened shortly after Tyler, The Creator, the group's frontman, voiced his dislike for photographers and repeatedly asked them to clear out. They wouldn't budge. At that point Left Brain began pouring water on the photogs and their equipment and allegedly assaulted Amy Harris.
"I have worked many shows before, and I've had to deal with a band flinging water at the photographers, but I never expected this to happen," Harris told Chicago Tribune.
However a rep for the group tells another story. "There simply is no truth to the accusation floating around the Internet," the rep told Billboard. "It's no secret that Odd Future has a love/hate relationship with photographers at shows. (It's) simply because they are given access the group wishes their fans would have instead. After telling the photographers to clear out multiple times (as they've done before) Vyron (Left Brain) took a swipe at a few cameras, NOT people. To manipulate the situation to insinuate an attack on a woman specifically is careless and manipulative."
Harris has declined to press charges against Left Brain or the group.
