3:35 PM PT – G-Eazy has just shown tremendous support for A $ AP and posted our story with a strong message: "Facts. This is the sad truth. .. The difference between me and Rocky's treatment and process in Sweden raises two concepts that go disgustingly hand in hand: white privilege and systematic racism. "
He continues," Let's call it the way it is just should not sit behind bars my heart goes to my brother @asaprocky and his team we are going for all of you #JusticeForRocky #FreeRocky. "
11:34 PM PT – Jada Pinkett Smith estimates the situation, having apparently only learned something about G-Eazy's experience in Sweden compared to Rocky's … saying: "Sweden has understood the message clearly, trust me … we got it. "
As A $ AP Rocky rotted in Swedish for weeks without charge for a crime in prison You wonder how another rapper – a white rapper – is accused of the same crime and spent more than a nanosecond behind bars before he can go his merry way and leave the country.
You can recall a story that TMZ published a year ago in May when G-Eazy was arrested in Stockholm after being beaten by a security guard at a club and dealt with a $ 100 Schein coke had snorted.
G-Eazy was arrested for assault drug possession and drug use. There was no video about the attack, but the prosecution allowed him to complete a deal a day and a half later. He pleaded guilty to violent resistance, a crime of violence against official and illegal drug possession. His verdict – a fine of $ 10,000 and a parole. He was also instructed to pay the guard $ 900.
That's it … G-Eazy was allowed to leave the country, not a must, no fuss.
Now compare that to A $ AP. There is VIDEO to the attack – actually 2 videos, the other is the alleged victim which first attacks Rocky – but prosecutors and the judge have been holding him in jail for more than 2 weeks "investigate" further and decide if he will be charged. As we reported, the prosecutors falsely played their hand on Friday and said he was being charged.
A $ AP faces six years in prison for alleged attack. G-Eazy spends less than two days behind bars.
And one more thing. Remember, Snoop Dogg was arrested in 2015 in Sweden after being torn from his car because the police thought he had driven under the driver's influence. He had to pee in a cup and was released after the police discovered he was clean. Snoop, who was there for a concert, said it was a DWB case and he would never return to the country.
