Following A$AP Rocky’s detainment in Stockholm, Sweden for his alleged involvement in a street brawl, recent reports revealed that the rapper is being held in “horrific” and “inhumane” conditions at a detention centre.
According to insiders with direct knowledge of Rocky’s situation, he is currently being held in a “disease ridden” facility and is being forced to sleep on a yoga mat with no blankets.
There is said to be a prisoner in the next cell with severe mental issues who slams his head against the concrete wall and throws feces across the prison that are not cleaned up.
It has been alleged that the water is not drinkable and for the first five days of his imprisonment, he was forced to eat only an apple a day as the other food was inedible.
“The conditions of the facility are horrific,” the source says. “Some of the inhumane conditions Rocky and his colleagues are facing at the Stockholm Detention Center include 24/7 solitary confinement, restriction of amenities for the most basic of human functions, access to palatable and life-sustaining food as well as unsanitary conditions.”
“Rocky is now being detained for an unknown period of time until they have a trial and he is having his legal and basic human rights ignored while being forced to live in inhumane conditions — all for acting in self-defense,” the source alleges.
An official from the U.S. Embassy who visited A$AP told his team that, “Walking into that place was like walking into a toilet.”
After reports surrounding the conditions in which he’s being held circulated, loads of his celebrity comrades have taken to social media to petition for his release.
