A$AP Rocky’s recent moshing experience has been making rounds online lately, and Tyler, the Creator, is getting in on the fun.
It all began this past Saturday when A$AP Rocky, who welcomed a son with Rihanna just a few months ago, performed at Rolling Loud in New York City.
During his set, which started late and was far shorter than audiences anticipated, A$AP Rocky made the split-second decision to stage-dive into the crowd of fans.
While this was probably a major adrenaline rush for all parties involved, it looks like the mosh pit may have been too much for the “F**kin’ Problems” rapper to handle.
While seemingly crowd-surfing and relishing in the moment, A$AP Rocky’s excitement swiftly transformed into visible concern, which was put on full display in a 10-second clip.
Viewers can see fans grabbing at the rapper while seemingly holding him above the ground, and the 33-year-old appeared to recognize that the situation was too much to handle.

“Get him out!” one person repeatedly screams in the brief video.
Thankfully, A$AP Rocky was swiftly taken back to safety, though the internet was just getting started on clowning his reaction.

Eventually, Tyler, the Creator, jumped on the bandwagon and made fun of the situation by changing his Instagram profile picture to a screenshot of A$AP Rocky’s concerned face.

A$AP Rocky hasn’t publicly acknowledged Tyler’s new profile picture, and the Odd Future OG hasn’t further spoken on the matter, either.
However, A$AP Rocky did proceed to speak on his disappointment at how short his performance actually was.
“I am so hurt right now! Last night was supposed to be a turning point in my live shows from the old to new! I will take full responsibility for the circumstances of what led to last night’s show being everything it was and wasn’t,” he wrote in a statement that was shared on Twitter.
“I was unfortunately not able to bring my vision to fruition and I’m hurt about that and I want to apologize to all of my fans and continued supporters,” the rapper added in his mea culpa.
