Rapper Waka Flocka Flame desecrates Trump shirt at Georgia concert

Well, we know how Waka Flocka Flame feels about the incoming president.

During a Monday night concert at the Georgia Theatre in Athens, the Atlanta rapper spotted a fan wearing a Donald Trump basketball jersey.

After shouting to the fan to throw the shirt on stage, Wacka pulled down his pants, bent over and swiped his rear end with it.

( You can view a fan-shot video of Waka in action, but be warned it is graphic).

The Waka follower, UGA student Kyle Weber, tweeted before the show that he knew it was a risk wearing Trump attire to the concert (his Twitter account has since been made private) but afterward posted that it was, “100 % a concert I won’t forget.”

Waka Flocka Flame has been a vocal Trump opponent since at least spring 2015, when he tweeted an expletive about the business mogul shortly before Trump officially announced his presidential candidacy.

In November, Waka announced that he had severed ties with Atlantic Records after a year-long battle to be released. Among other issues, Waka accused the label of holding back his project, "Flockaveli 2."
