Migos sued over concert stabbing


The members of rap group Migos have been sued for allegedly inciting a riot which led to six people being stabbed at their concert in 2015.

The hip-hop trio’s show at the Washington Avenue Armory in Albany, New York, turned violent when concertgoers started fighting, and six people ended up in hospital with stab wounds that were not life threatening.

The band, Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff, are now being sued over the incident by owners of the venue, who claimed the hip-hop stars agitated the crowd by showing up late, turning up smelling of weed and alcohol, and refusing to honor meet-and-greets which fans had paid for, according to TMZ.com.

In the lawsuit, it’s claim they were “encouraging, cheering and inciting the patrons to fight” and subsequently “caused patrons to be stabbed, robbed, beaten, severely harmed, and injured”. They were allegedly “laughing and egging the crowd on as metal gates were ripped from the ground and thrown into the crowd”.

The owners also claim the Bad and Boujee stars have a history of bad conduct and a reputation for criminal activity.
