A recent incident at the Riverfront Music Festival in Detroit showcased Monica’s real-life superhero persona as she came to the rescue of a distressed fan during her performance.
On July 22nd, the talented singer of “So Gone” took the stage, but the event took an unexpected turn when she noticed a woman being assaulted by another concertgoer, leaving her feeling deeply affected.
Without hesitation, the 42-year-old songstress sprang into action, bravely addressing the male assailant directly from the stage and then courageously diving into the crowd to confront him herself.
Monica firmly admonished the man, saying, “Don’t you hit her like that!” Monica scolded the man, before urging security to kick him out. “Listen, if y’all don’t get that n**** up outta here … Is you out your f***ing mind?”
She fearlessly faced the offender and continued to express her outrage, stating, “You don’t hit a lady like that! Unacceptable behavior.”
The audience quickly rallied behind Monica, offering their full support for her decision to take matters into her own hands. Encouraging chants of “Get his ass out of here!” echoed from fellow attendees.
Upon her return to the stage, a visibly upset Monica apologized to her fans for the momentary disruption, as reported by the Detroit Metro Times.
“I want to apologize, y’all. That shit triggered me,” she told the crowd. “I seen him punch that lady in the face, I lost my fuckin’ temper. I apologize y’all. I apologize from the bottom of my heart.”
