Rapper Majesty Da Rebel Interrupts & Scuffles With Reporter During Live Broadcast While Trying To Promote His Music (Video)
Video After The Jump
A rapper trying to build a buzz for his new mixtape took a very unorthodox route and may end up in legal trouble because of it.
Majesty Da Rebel, born Key Jonta Foster, spotted ABC 7 New York reporter CeFaan Kim broadcasting live in Manhattan on Saturday, February 4. He ran up while wearing a hockey mask and put his arm around Kim, while yelling out his rap name.
Kim attempts to push the rapper away from the camera. The two tussle slightly before Rebel pushes Kim to the ground. They both accuse each other of starting the altercation.
Rebel eventually yanks off the mask and continues to argue. The men are eventually separated.
Kim tweeted out video footage of the incident and asked the public for help in identifying him.
"This is the man who attacked me last night during a live broadcast. If anyone has seen him around please give the 7th precinct a call," Kim wrote.
As it turns out Kim didn't need help finding the person he was looking for because Rebel gave an interview to the New York Post, providing them with all of his information and explained why he pulled the stunt.
“The reason I did it was because I knew I’d get negative feedback from it,” Rebel told The Post. “I can always flip that. I saw an opportunity and took the opportunity to promote my video and mixed tape. From the beginning, it was friendly — I put my arm around him, and then he pushed me, grabbed me.
“I’m not scared to deal with the consequences,” he continued. “They’ll probably interrogate me, ask me what happened. White guys bomb video reporters all the time. A black man tries to get air time and then gets beat up by the reporter. I’m gonna do what I gotta do and seize an opportunity.”
