XXXTentacion Punches Fan in the Face at Utah Show
Video footage shows another of the rapper’s tour stops
Repeated acts of violence on XXXTentacion’s Revenge Tour, which include a stabbing, don’t seem to be deterring the Florida rapper from making his shows as wild as possible—even if it means attacking a concertgoer.
Yet another XXXTentacion concert devolved into violence Friday night, as video footage clearly shows a fan being punched in the face by the Florida rapper in the middle of the crowd. Since the tour began in May, XXX and opener Wifisfuneral have been attacked, and XXX has been accidentally tossed into a barrier by security officials.
In the brief clip below, XXX can be seen standing face-to-face with a young fan in the crowd during last night’s stop on his Revenge Tour trek. Seconds later, XXX swings hard at the young man—connecting with his face—then squares up as if he were ready to brawl in the middle of his Salt Lake City crowd.

Regardless of his tour transgressions, violence has been an unavoidable part of XXXTentacion’s narrative. His breakthrough hit, “Look At Me,” blew up just months after he was arrested for allegedly attacking his pregnant girlfriend. Prior to that, he’d bragged about ‘beating up a fag’ during an interview.
Rapper Rob Stone, who some credit the attack on XXXTentacion to, recently offered his insights on the Revenge Tour brawl in San Diego in an interview with Mass Appeal. “He posted my addresses online,” said Stone. “He sent me his tour dates you know? Like San Diego and Santa Clara. He did all that and the tweets, but the real problem was him posting my one-year-old son. That wasn’t cool, and that kind of got San Diego, my home city, to say, ‘Nah, that’s not cool.’
Maybe there should be a Surgeon General’s warning on the back of the tour poster.
