Almost 400,000 people sign petition to demand rapper A$AP Rocky's release
The rapper was arrested in Sweden towards the end of last week.
At the time of writing, close to 400,000 people have signed a petition to demand the release of rapper A$AP Rocky, who was arrested in Sweden last week.
He was arrested following the emergence of footage of a fight between him and his entourage, and two people who appeared to be following him for quite some time.
A petition has since been created to demand his release, which claims that he acted in self-defence and that Rocky and his friends were "physically assaulted" first.
It also claims that the conditions at the Stockholm Detention Centre are "horrendous", and that they include:
"24/7 solitary confinement, restriction of amenities for the most basic of human functions, access to palatable and life sustaining food as well as unsanitary conditions."
The petition was shared by A$AP Mob - Rocky's entourage - on their official Twitter account.
