An old video clip of Steve Aoki chucking a cake at a dude in a wheelchair is earning the rounds once more — and when men and women are previously rapid to dogpile him … the outrage ought to cease below.
The Fight Club Video clips Twitter account surfaced a clip Friday that’s taking off ideal now on the fowl app — it shows the famed DJ throwing a pastry out into the crowd (like he commonly does) and hitting a dude who was lifted up in a wheelchair … appropriate in the encounter.
The Twitter account that posted this — which virtually just aggregates and publishes mad clips — explained this incident in fairly ominous phrases … and without any context in any respect. They wrote, “Steve Aoki (DJ) threw a cake 80 ft and strike boy in wheel chair.”
Initial, this is an ancient online video from 2013, when SA performed at the Veld Music Festival in Toronto. And more importantly, this is not a “boy” — AKA, a little one — but relatively … a developed-ass man. He also was not the sufferer of nearly anything, as Twitter is seemingly brief to assume now.
There were some who noticed this — all over again, out of context — and assumed what the Fight Club account floated was correct … and that he’d deliberately aimed to harm this disabled human being. That, or they presumed Steve did not know the harm he may perhaps have inflicted.
Thankfully, that is not even shut to the truth at all … if you observe the complete clip, which Steve posted himself back again then, you can see the man questioned to be hoisted up and required the cake.
Steve simply just obliged, and even snapped a shot with him afterward. So, it was all kosher.
Crisis (and potential cancelation) averted, y’all.😅
