Rapper ASAP Rocky is fighting for his life. He's currently locked in a Swedish jail and is facing up to 6 years in prison for getting into a street fight.

Now the rapper is in additional jeopardy. He's also caught in the crossfire of a debate about where he stands with women and the feminism ideology.

Rocky, born Rakim Mayers, was arrested in Sweden for fighting, Rocky claims that he was defending White women who were being groped and harassed by drug addicts.

When Twitter learned that Rocky is claiming that he was defending White girls - many Black feminists went off. They are now calling the rapper a colorist, fraud and fake feminist.

To prove their point, Black Twitter feminists are bringing up Rocky's past comments on darkskinned women, Black Lives Matter and his association with the alleged rapist Ian Connor.

Here is what is being said on social media:

On Friday, a Swedish court ruled that A$AP Rocky, whose given name is Rakim Mayers, poses a flight risk following his arrest for an alleged assault. For the next two weeks, the rapper will be detained in a Stockholm detention center while authorities conduct an investigation into the incident, in which Rocky and his companions got into an altercation with two men on the street on Sunday.

“So a few drug addicts are not my fans. We don’t know these guys and we didn’t want trouble,” the rapper wrote under one of the two Instagram videos he posted of the scuffle. “They followed us for 4 blocks and they were slapping girls butts who passed. Give me a break.” Under the other, Rocky wrote, “Hits Security in face with headphones then follow us.” According to the New York Times, a video clip published by Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet allegedly shows the rapper hurling one of the men to the ground.
