Why is everyone blaming Danny Brown, who was essentially sexually assaulted by a fan when she rushed a stage to perform oral sex on him during a performance? asks fellow rapper Kitty Pryde in a provocative piece at Noisey.

I'm mad that a person thought it was okay to pull another person's pants down during their performance in front of about 700 other people. I'm mad that a person thought it was a good idea to perform a sex act on another person without their consent. I'm mad that nobody made her leave. I'm mad that Danny had to actually wonder what he was supposed to do at that point. I'm mad that when I went home and said I had no respect for that girl, I was attacked for being a “slut-shamer” (after literally leading a girl to his hotel room at 3AM at her request) and, even more outrageously, for being jealous of the girl who sucked his d***. I'm mad that when two dudes pulled my pants down onstage, other people got mad too, but when it happened to Danny the initial reaction was like one big high-five. I'm mad that people are treating "The Thing" like it's some legendary event. I'm mad that even though they know exactly who the girl is, nobody in the media will even talk to her. I'm mad that I get a bunch of emails a day asking me to talk about my best friend's “misogyny” and “classless behavior”, from people who have heard only rumors and seen only one very blurry and inconclusive iPhone photo.
