After helping to secure his release, news say that rapper, A$AP Rocky is refusing to thank President Donald Trump and the white house for helping to secure his release from a Swedish jail following his arrest for assault.
Recall that the rapper had been arrested in Sweden and arraigned on assault charges when Kanye West and Kim Kardashian reached out to the President to intervene. Well, he did but it looks like the rapper is unwilling to say thank you.
When Kanye reached out to him then, he had tweeted: “Just spoke to @KanyeWest about his friend A$AP Rocky’s incarceration. I will be calling the very talented Prime Minister of Sweden to see what we can do about helping A$AP Rocky. So many people would like to see this quickly resolved!”
And now it looks like he is angry that there’s been no acknowledgement or thank you from the rapper. A Trump surrogate and pastor, Darren Scott said: “The White House didn’t ask for anything. There were no conditions attached, but my condition and Kareem [Lanier]’s condition was that all I’m asking for you guys to do is say thank you.”
Back then when Rocky was still incarcerated, his manager agreed to say thank you but it looks like he’s dodging now and have stopped replying texts from people affiliated to Trump too.
An enraged Scott said: “All he had to do was do a two-minute call to say thank you. Rocky hasn’t even called us and said, ‘Hey, man, thank you guys. I appreciate it,’ in private. Just in private.”
It remains to be seen if A$AP Rocky will reach out to say thank you. Trump is not the most popular person right now and it will be interesting to see if Rocky will say thank you.
