Afroman has apologized for hitting a woman during a Mardi Gras stage appearance in Biloxi Tuesday and said he accepts full responsibility for his actions.
“All I want to do is right my wrong,” the entertainer said in an interview with TMZ Wednesday afternoon.
Afroman, whose birth name is Joseph Foreman, was playing at Kress Live when a woman, with no security guards stopping her, walked on stage and started dancing behind him as he was playing his guitar . The rapper suddenly turned to see the swaying woman, and using his hands, hit the woman in the face; sending her backwards to the floor. Afroman had originally said he didn’t realize all the women had not left the stage and he thought it was a man rubbing against his backside. But he told TMZ Wednesday, man or woman, his actions were inappropriate. “Everyone knows I love my fans. I get to shows early just to interact with the people that love my music,” he said.
Afroman, who was charged with simply assault, said he plans to enroll in an anger management class.
