Gucci Mane stopped by a New York City Barnes & Noble on Tuesday (Sept. 19) for a book signing in honor of his latest piece of work, The Autobiography of Gucci Mane.
The event was going great until anti-fur activists verbally attacked the “Curve” rapper. A man approached Gucci, dapping him up and commending him for thinking about going vegan but then told the rapper he “can’t be vegan if he keeps on wearing that fur.”
The man then pulled out a shirt that read “Animal Abuser” and began shouting the phrase. The man was also joined by a woman who had the same shirt as well.
“Shame on Gucci, animal abuser, shame on Gucci, animal abuser,” both shouted before being escorted away from the scene by the rapper’s security. According to TMZ, the two were members of New York Animal Defenders.
As this all unfolded, Gucci stayed calmed and let a security guard handle the disruption. The rapper’s probation was recently ended two years early.
Up next for the Atlanta artist, his upcoming album, Mr. Davis, is set to drop on Oct. 13. Originally scheduled for a September release, the album was pushed back a month.
