Back in October, YG made headlines when he kicked the-then 17-year-old off stage after he refused to yell "F**k Donald Trump." This weekend, the now 18-year-old Austin Joyner penned a letter to the rapper on Twitter, clarifying a few things, one being that he is not a YG fan, simply someone attending the two-day festival with his friends.
About the night, Austin says, "Most of the crowd had their middle fingers up and were chanting the song along with YG. All I did was stand there. I didn't want to present myself in that way. At no time did I mention anything regarding politics at the festival. As Americans, we have Freedom of Speech, and while I may not agree with YG's hatred towards President Trump, as a citizen, he's allowed to say what he wants. However, he crossed a line when he singled me out for not singing along and tried to humiliate me and get the entire crowd to turn against me in a threatening manner." Watch the letter down below.
