Future has become the latest rapper to be harassed while on tour overseas. The incident occurred in Ibiza, Spain while he was at the airport, according to TMZ

Several White men approached Future and asked for an autograph, but the rapper declined and said, “not today guys.” The White mob became upset and began to yell racial slurs at Future and his team. Future’s bodyguard, who has yet to be identified, attempted to step in and bring calm to the situation.

However, one of the men in the mob attacked Future’s bodyguard by hitting him the head while his back was turned. Future’s bodyguard was left unconscious as the rapper was rushed away from the scene.

Some on social media have suggested that Future should have stayed to help his bodyguard. However, the rapper likely made a wise decision.

Several weeks ago, A$AP Rocky was involved in a similar incident where a White male approached him and his team. According to video, the White male was clearly the agitator and hit A$AP Rocky’s bodyguard in the head. After the incident, A$AP Rocky was placed in jail. A$AP Rocky could be in jail for six years if convicted of the crime. The White male who started the incident was not charged.

Authorities in Ibiza have yet to reveal if the men responsible for attacking Future’s bodyguard will be charged.
