More Celebs including Justin Bieber, and Diddy call for A$AP Rocky‘s release from Swedish prison.
A$AP Rocky‘s imprisonment seems to still hold tight as more celebrities take the stand to rally for his freedom. The Black American rapper who on July 2nd was arrested and detained in Sweden is yet to be released.
Reports of the ‘inhumane conditions’ in which he’s being held has caused an uproar. His manager in an Instagram post, spoke about the treatment the rapper is currently facing. He wrote;
” The conditions of the facility are horrific and include 24/7 solitary confinement, restriction of amenities for the most basic of human functions, lack of access to life sustaining food as well as unsanitary conditions. Sadly, it appears the prosecutor of this case is looking for his own recognition by trying to make a name for himself based on Rocky’s global fame. ”
The change.org petition that was started to push for his release now has over 400,000 signatures and counting.
A great number of celebrities are now speaking out in support of the rapper and shining a light on his unacceptable arrest. Among them are;
Justin Bieber, who posted an image of the petition and wrote;
” We’re with you bro, Go sign this petition!! #freerocky ”
” Stand in support and request Rocky’s release from Swedish officials!. ”
” Support each other, This could be you Tomar #freeasaprocky ”
“ I performed in Jamaica before and when I got off the stage I was surrounded by police with guns drawn. They were ready to take me to jail b/c they said I forgot to bleep a couple curses… I could make one mistake & go to jail in a diff country where women have no rights. #FreeAsap “
