Rapper Spectacular Blue Smith Charged With Battery Of Walt Disney Employee After COVID-19 Joke [Mugshot]
Spectacular Blue Smith, the Love & Hip Hop: Miami star and CEO of Adwizar, is set to appear in court after allegedly punching a Walt Disney World cast member after he took offense at a COVID-19 joke that the Florida rapper made while on line for a theme park ride. Spectacular went on social media to blame his arrest on racism.
According to the arrest affidavit, while the rapper entered a line for Disney’s Animal Kingdom, he reportedly faked a sneeze and then uttered “coronavirus” audibly, thus prompting an employee to ask him to leave the line. Spectacular refused, which then led to an altercation where the employee was punched at least twice after blocking entry. The rapper was arrested on scene and charged with battery while the Disney employee was taken to the hospital.
After being arrested for the incident, Spectacular took to Instagram to set the record straight. Later writing in his story that his arrest had to do with his wealth and race. “The more success you have as a black man, the bigger target you are,” he claimed. “The media will put out a one sided story even without facts, because they love demonizing our culture and bringing us down. It’s sad.”
Spectacular then continued, “However, when you know your rights, you know that you have the right to remain silent and a right to have a lawyer present before giving a statement. With that said, there’s 2 sides to every story and since this story is bigger than me and the color of my skin, I’ll wait till my attorney gives the green light.”
