Akon Assaults 14-year old Girl at Concert
« on: April 20, 2007, 05:37:42 pm »
Blogger Afronerd posted a story about how Akon grabbed a 14-year old fan on stage and then practically tried to rape her.  Here is the link:

I think I'm going to be sick.

This is a developing story, so I'll wait for more facts before I form an opinion. I want to know several things though:

1. Is it officially confirmed that this girl is a minor?
2. Was there an age resistriction at the concert?
3. Who the HELL lied to Akon and told him that he can ride the punnany like real Island massive?
4. What does his three wives think of this? Although, I doubt it matters.
5. Has Akon made a statement on the incident?
...Rassclaat.

Good question.

Neither Akon nor his wives have spoken on this as yet.

Thanks zeraze, but questions 1, 2 and 5 are the most important ones. One out three isn't enough to draw a conclusion from, I'll wait for more details.

Well, if it's true...I can just see Mr. Akorn's response...

Reporter:  Akorn...what do you say about these sexual assault charges levied against you.

Akorn:  "I don't even believe in Sexual Assault," he announces. "That's just a movie. Think about it. Ain't nobody thought about nothing about no sexual assault until the Accused came out. Where was all that sh*t before the movie? That's the problem with people - they believe everything they read or see on TV." He slaps my knee and emits a hearty laugh. He's getting excited. "It's no different from Amistad or Rosewood. Everybody thought that was real. That campaign and marketing was incredible. After that, they're getting Oscars. Unless you go to Darfur or Sierra Leone and see what's going down, don't believe everything you're reading or see on TV. Trust me."

Nice, Catch.  I thought it was a real quote for half a beat.

Thanks, man...but after he said what he said about conflict diamonds...could this really be that far fetched?

UPDATE

BET reports that Verizon is no longer sponsoring any Akon concerts after the racy video above:

In related news, the blog, What About Our Daughters?, notes that an online campaign contributed to Akon getting the boot:

Wow, that was quick.

Didn't like his music anyway. Seriously, radio stations play his songs six times in the same hour. No wonder everyone has ipods now.

The older W.I.'s aren't exactly TOLERANT of what they consider "slackness". I could see this turning into a ban on performing in the area once enough of the usual suspects get worked up.

Dude's crazy, but it looks like he was trying to give his audience a show. And what a poor showman he is. I recently read an article where he apologized for what happened but I can't shuffle all or even most of the blame on him. Someone needs to cut that little girl's rass for being there in the first place.
