Hip-hop and R&B crooner Tory Lanez treated his hometown of Toronto with a concert on Wednesday night (July 4) where, judging by a video, dozens of fans came out to spend their 4th of July holiday.
The Memories Don’t Die artist also treated one of them with some vicious blows at the front of the stage, according to footage of a front-row fan interaction apparently gone wrong.
In videos posted by The Shade Room and SFTY News, Tory can be seen towering over the hoard of cellphone-raising crowdgoers. He tells them to throw their hands up, and before you know it, he begins throwing vicious punches at one person in the crowd as the rest of the fans roar in astonishment. Tory falls down into the crowd amid the physical exchange as what appears to be security members rush to the scene.
Currently, there’s no information regarding what provoked such an abrupt altercation nor who the person was that Tory threw the blows at. One thing for sure, however, is that the “Say It” singer isn’t one to back down from anyone—just ask Travis Scott. The Houston rapper and Tory recently settled their tension after a Mala Luna festival blowup that surfaced in a video, showing the Toronto artist confronting La Flame in a heated backstage run-in. Tory had no qualms when he asked whether Travis wanted to “shoot the fade” in the middle of the argument. Thankfully, things never escalated to that point, he’d later reveal in his “Hate to Say” record.
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for his most recent scuffle.
