Rapper Killer Mike Arrested at Grammy's After Winning Three Awards and Hitting a Member of the Crowd

It is currently unknown why he was arrested, but the online conspiracy theory is he refused to endorse Biden 3 days ago.

Rapper Killer Mike was arrested at the Grammy's in Los Angeles after winning three awards. "He hit someone in the crowd and it was recorded. So they called the police, showed the video, let him receive the awards and arrested," tweeted Sri Harsha, who was there.

Just before getting taken out of the Arena (formerly the Staples Center) in handcuffs, Killer Mike won Best Rap Album, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.

Killer Mike was heard saying: "Are you serious?" to officers as they escorted him out of the building.

The Conspiracy theory is that he refused to endorse Joe Biden 3 days ago, so the LAPD arrested him. "Rapper Killer Mike two days ago on Bill Maher refused to endorse Joe Biden. Tonight he got arrested after winning three Grammys. There are no coincidences,” tweeted JD Sharp.

"A source told Gardner the arrest was for a misdemeanor unrelated to the ceremony and was “a big nothing.” They arrest him but not illegals; it should be interesting to hear the truth when it's finally revealed.” tweeted Larry.

"FREE my nigga @KillerMike NOW!!! The man is a thought leader having his moment and the dirty ass #LAPD planned this malicious #dirty arrest! I’m so angry they pulled this shit on a successful Black business man, family man, and musician! #FreeKillerMike #fuckthepolice”. Tweeted Jesse Perez.
