Kitty Pryde Sounds Off on Danny Brown's Onstage "Sexual Assault"

Any remaining "OMG, no way? That's not serious, is it?" questions about Danny Brown's onstage oral sex fiasco during a recent Minneapolis gig have been hushed by his tour mate, Kitty Pryde, who sounded off via a post at Noisey. Turns out, she's pissed about the fallout in the media and amongst fans, and she's even more pissed at the entitled girl who "sexually assaulted" Brown.

Writes Kitty...

"Ever since it happened the universal respect Danny commanded has splintered into two groups: one side thinking he’s way more awesome than they should, and the other thinking he's an awful misogynist and hack. This bothers me a lot. Him too, but mostly me. I’m mad as hell, to be honest.

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' ... and, even more outrageously, for being jealous of the girl who sucked his d-ck. 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 [this incident] 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. 

I won’t go into detail about the actual events because I was pretty drunk and I don’t want to tell the wrong story. I will say that it happened so quickly that nobody I talked to after the show even knew anything had happened (there was only one photo and no video—how rare is that). I will also say that whoever wrote on Reddit that Danny was "walking around the stage getting girls to grab his d-ck" is 100% false, and to blame someone for their own molestation is a sh-tty thing to do. 

Anybody who is exaggerating this tale to climax is also a lying fool, and to call it a blow job is even going a bit far because it was probably the fastest thing I’ve ever seen. [The incident] was not a thing that Danny facilitated—it was an actual sexual assault, and somehow nobody gives a f-ck about that but me."

For the record, everyone needs a friend like Kitty Pryde. Read her full letter at Noisey.
