VIDEO: Rapper Watsky attempts 30 foot stage jump, fails terribly
Sometimes when the music hits you, you become lost in the moment and do things you end up regretting later.
Rapper George Watsky was performing at Alexandra Palace during the Vans Warped Tour, thought it would be an awesome idea to stage jump from a 30 ft high lighting fixture into the crowd.
As soon as Watsky jumped, the crowd moved to the side to avoid the impact.A woman suffered a broken wrist and another man was injured and hospitalized. He was taken to the hospital and released. According to his open apology on Facebook, he sustained a few ‘nicks, bruises.’
Watsky admits he has no reason for jumping into the crowd other than being caught-up in the moment. He writes, “I have no excuse for my actions, and the only way I can explain my mindset is that it was a huge overreach in the heat of the moment.”
Watsky will continue with his other tour dates, but he will not be launching himself into any more crowds.
