The US State Department has weighed in on the treatment of A$AP Rocky by Swedishauthorities after the rapper was arrested in Stockholm for an alleged attack that took place late last month, a report said.
Secretary Mike Pompeo has been briefed about the detainment of A$AP Rocky — real name Rakim Mayers — as the “A$AP Forever” rapper is being held in a Swedish prison pending charges, according to Politico.
“There are certainly some facts about the arrest and detention that raise concerns,” a State Department spokesperson said.
“We expect all governments, including Sweden, to treat American citizens fairly and with respect. We hope to see ASAP Rocky and his colleagues back on tour and reunited with friends and family soon.”
