Big Sean responds to reports that a fan allegedly slapped him at a signing on Friday after a video of the incident went viral.

On Saturday, the rapper took to Twitter where he denied all claims that he was attacked: “Look I never comment on this type of s— but they can’t do me dirty and say a fan smacked me or no s— like that.”

In the video, a fan can be seen struggling on the ground while police hold him down. In the background, Big Sean appears to be smiling yet confused as police order people out of the store. The video went viral after a fan shared it on Twitter claiming that the tackled fan had “smacked” the Detroit rapper.

The 28-year-old went on to detail his version of events, claiming that a fan was waiting in line for his album, I Decided., and that after signing the man’s copy and shaking his hand, the fan, “TRIED to hit me off guard.” Although the “Bounce Back” recording artist claimed he wanted to continue with the signing event, the FYE store in Flushing, New York, shut it down immediately after the incident occurred.

Meanwhile, the manager of the store played coy, telling People, “It was a successful signing. We had a good event.”

In spite of it all, Big Sean took a brief moment to thank his fans for supporting his recent release, writing, “I got the #1 Album in the country currently and am grateful for every listener who got love for me. Everyday a dream come true #IDecided.”
