G-Eazy & Jada Pinkett Smith Call Out Sweden's Perceived Racist Treatment Of A$AP Rocky

Posted by

G-Eazy was arrested in Sweden last year on drug and assault charges, but his situation played out way differently than A$AP Rocky’s current predicament.

After TMZ ran a story calling out Sweden’s seemingly racist actions toward the A$AP Mob rapper, G-Eazy hopped on Instagram and threw in his two cents. G-Eazy admits the reason he was out of jail so quickly is likely due to his white privilege.

“Facts. This is the sad truth… The difference between me and Rocky’s treatment and process in Sweden brings to mind two concepts that disgustingly go hand in hand: white privilege and systemic racism,” he wrote. “Let’s call it what it is. He should not be behind bars right now.

“My heart goes out to my brother @asaprocky and his team. We’re riding for yall. #JusticeForRocky #FreeRocky.”

Jada Pinkett Smith also chimed in via Twitter and agreed with G-Eazy’s sentiments.

“Hold it … G-Eazy got to strike a deal a day and half after possession of drugs and assault charges???” she tweeted on Friday (July 19). “But you’re holding Rocky. We got the message loud and clear Sweden. Trust me … we got it.”

On Friday morning, a judge ruled Rocky will remain behind the bars of a Swedish jail until prosectors decide whether to indict him on the assault charges. They are expected to make their final decision by July 25.

In the meantime, several of Rocky’s peers have showed their support by launching a Swedish boycott, including Tyler, The Creator and T.I.

Rocky was arrested in Stockholm on July 2 after he got into an altercation with a group of men who accused Rocky of breaking his headphones.
