On December 28, Jack Harlow performed at the Coca Cola Roxy, in Atlanta. This concert was part of his ongoing Crème de la Crème Tour. The Louisville rapper had another lit show, but now, there is controversy regarding security there.
A video has gotten Harlow’s attention, where two police officers were speaking to a Black woman, who tried to get into the concert. Apparently, she wasn’t able to get in due to police denying her entry.
One of the security guards ended up pushing this woman in her neck area. Harlow is now addressing this on Instagram, as he says he wants to get this woman as many concerts tickets as possible, and emphasized how Black women are unfairly treated by law enforcement.
“This video came to my attention a few hours ago. When I watched it I was disgusted by that cop and all I wanted to do was make something good happen for this girl immediately…I told the world to help me identify her so I could find a way to give her a hug and give her as many tickets to as many shows as she wants. But that’s not enough and its not a solution to a systemic issue that people who don’t look like me have to face. The next step is identifying this police officer and getting him unemployed as fast as we can.”
Harlow hopes to get this officer identified as soon as possible, and to get him removed from his position. Many fans in Harlow’s Instagram comments also agreed that this needs to be done, and they commended Harlow for addressing this incident and using his platform for good.
