Jack Harlow is calling for a police officer to be fired after graphic footage showed the officer grabbing a young woman by the neck after one of his shows.
Jack Harlow Wants Cop Fired For Assaulting Fan
In a statement shared via Instagram with a brief clip of the incident in question, Harlow explained that the footage had been brought to his attention by a fan and that he chose to use his platform to bring it to light.
“I told the world to help me identify her so I could find a way to give her a hug and give her as many tickets to as many shows as she wants,” Harlow said. “But that’s not enough and its not a solution to a systemic issue that people who don’t look like me have to face. The next step is identifying this police officer and getting him unemployed as fast as we can.”
“I want this woman, and every black woman that supports me to know—I am so sorry,” he said, as seen in full below. “I want you to be protected and I want this guy to lose his job so fucking fast. I love you. Let’s find this officer.”
In the footage, a young woman is seen alone outside on an unnamed street in an animated confrontation with two police officers. The woman is waving her hands, yelling, and steps forward to get up in the officer’s face. The officer responds by grabbing her neck and pushing her away. The officer then grabs one of her hands to restrain her from waving them. The young woman is unharmed and continues to argue with the officer.
Fans on social media are giving Jack the co-sign and showing him love for bringing light to the issue.
As of this publishing, the officer has not been identified.
