A$AP Rocky created chaos when he plowed through a crowd of clamoring fans and jumped over a barricade to gain entry into the Met Gala on Monday, May 1, 2023.

Specifically, some derided the multiplatinum rap star for using a woman’s face and neck to help hoist himself over the blockade at the Carlyle Hotel in Midtown Manhattan that cordoned off the uninvited from impeding the estimable proceedings.

Amid the dramatic entrees — which are the lifeblood of the annual soiree — Rocky’s may have been the winner, and he wasn’t even dressed yet.

The video of “Fashion Killa” emcee channeling his inner Spider-Man made the rounds on Twitter on Monday night into Tuesday morning. 

Much like the webbed-wonder, A$AP Rocky quickly changed into his outfit to accompany his girlfriend Rihanna. The record-breaking pop goddess blew folks away with her Maison Valentino white silk gown. Meanwhile, Rocky almost served as an accoutrement to RiRi’s captivating dress that also showed off her growing baby bump.

A$AP juxtaposed Rihanna’s high fashion look with his urbanized, Karl Lagerfeld-inspired red tartan kilt, thick black belt, white button-down, black tie, and a meticulously tailored blazer. Rocky layered the upscale look with his “keep it streets” designer jeans

Despite the fact that Rihanna mesmerized fashion connoisseurs, Rocky’s mystifying and rather brusque entry remained one of pop culture’s talking points Tuesday morning.
