More Akon Antics

Akon, already facing trial on misdemeanor charges of endangering the welfare of a minor after throwing a fan off an upstate New York stage in 2007, recently found himself at the center of another controversy thanks to an Internet video.

A clip that showed what appeared to be Akon attacking female fans at an August 30th Guyana concert quickly made the rounds.

Akon’s publicity company released another clip shot from a different angle that appears to show the women were accidentally pushed off a small platform as Akon tried to gain his footing.

Unlike the original video, it shows the full footage of the rapper pulling one of the women up and holding her after he realized she’d fallen. The concert’s promoter issued a press release denying Akon mistreated fans at the show.
