Odd Future Being Sued By Fan They Beat Up at San Antonio Concert

Rushing the stage with anything but the most benevolent of intent at an Odd Future show is probably gonna land you in some sort of trouble, and that was certainly the case for 17-year-old Chassan Rasagi when he jumped on board at the crew’s San Antonio show earlier this week. Rasagi was beat up by the group and their road crew, though some of those in attendance (epsecially in the video’s YouTube comments) insist the attack was more than provoked by the fan, who may have pushed OF member Hodgy Beats first. (The crowd certainly supported the group in the altercation, chanting “WOLF! GANG!” as it was happening.)
Rasagi does not feel the severity of the attack was justified, however, and is now planning on suing the group for their beatdown. TMZ’s report of the potential suit says claims that “Rasagi suffered lacerations on his head, scratches, and burns to his body during the melee. We’re told he also suffered two seizures.” Hard to imagine how the burns might have occurred, and the video isn’t high-quality enough to tell, but TMZ has pictures of the apparent burns, and…well, you judge for yourself.
A little weird to think that Frank Ocean was once inextricably associated with this group, isn’t it? Now he’s off getting nominated for just about every Grammy possible, and they’re still getting in trouble for brawling with idiot fans.
