Jamaican American rapper Busta Rhymes is trending after he was seen on video throwing water on a fan who grabbed his butt as he walked through a crowd.
The rapper was walking with his entourage when a woman wearing mustard-colored tights and a denim top noticed him from a distance and followed behind him. The woman is seen bending down before she grabs his butt and seems to puts her hands to her face.
The woman seemed happy to be able to grab the rapper’s derriere as she stood and waited for his reaction, but Busta Rhymes was not accommodating to the invasion of his body, and he turned around with a scowl and threw the contents of a bottle of water at her.
It’s unclear when the incident took place, but the video of the incident went viral on Tuesday, with the rapper’s name trending on Twitter.

Others also agreed with the rapper’s reaction noting that Jamaican men do not like being touched on their butt.
