TMZ shared the footage, saying in their report on the incident that sources connected with Future believe the attack was racially motivated, having started with Future understandably turning down strangers' photo requests due to travel exhaustion.
From there, a group of as many as 10 men reportedly "erupted in anger" by shouting slurs, among other inflammatory remarks. At this point, the bodyguard is said to have started intervening before eventually being struck from behind.

TMZ said Future was reportedly ready to get involved before his team got him away from the "full-on racist attack," explicitly fearing he could wind up in a situation similar to ASAP Rocky’s detainment in Sweden over a street altercation.
