Pusha T concert fights leave one person in critical condition
Police say that one person suffered “life-threatening stab wounds” after multiple fights broke out at Pusha T‘s show at Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall on Tuesday (11/20) night, Toronto Sun reports. Toronto Police spokesman Const. David Hopkinson told the Sun that the wounded person, who he didn’t identify, arrived at the hospital on his own after the show. Two other people, whose injuries were less serious, were also treated at the hospital, and three more refused treatment.
Hopkinson said someone rushed the stage at 10 PM, appearing to try to attack Pusha T, who says he wasn’t hurt. Push tweeted, in response to an article, “Don’t spread these lies!!! Thats not Pusha -T getting punished on stage…👀” Videos, which you can watch below, show some of the chaos, with liquids (WTHR reports that they were “water, beer and paint”) flying, security getting involved, and Push leaving the stage.
The jury is still out on whether or not the brawl was definitely related to this show being in Drake’s hometown, but it appears that Push thought it was. When he came back out on stage, he played his Drake diss track “Infrared” and said to the crowd: “This n**** pay some n***** to throw beer n****,” he says. “What the fuck is that, y’all know where the fuck I’m from? You don’t even know!”
