Run The Jewels Slam Sexual Perverts During Glastonbury Set
by Mike Winslow
(AllHipHop News) Hip-hop duo Run the Jewels slammed gig goers who sexually harass women during their performance at Britain’s Glastonbury festival.
Rappers Killer Mike and El-P performed on the iconic Pyramid Stage at the music event in Somerset, England and were keen to ensure none of their female fans weren’t left feeling uncomfortable.
Mike said, “We got one big rule. All the ladies, that’s half our audience, if they didn’t come with you or invite you, keep your grubby hands and little d##k off them.
“We want you to party and meet your future wife so you guys make a baby. But that’s a mutual decision, it’s not you deciding. So if I see you do it we’re going to punch you in your f##king face, over and over again.”
A number of bands have been speaking out about harassment at concerts recently, as officials at Girls Against, a U.K. campaign promoting female gig goers’ safety, have received backing from acts including The 1975, Wolf Alice and Slaves.
Before a raucous set the rap group also told their fans to look out for each other, with El-P stating, “When you’re part of the Run the Jewels community, when you see someone fall down… pick that motherf##ker up.”
Run the Jewels were introduced by U.K. Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn, who received a rapturous reception for a speech calling for a more equal society.
