What kind of bullshit led up to the famed rapper's detainment?
He got restrained by the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agency after he was told to get off the hoverboard.
I guess they didn't realize he was an entertainer.
They slammed him face first into the ground and took the hoverboard.
Many figured that the CBP and Los Angeles Port Authority took it a little too far.
The CBP released a statement in regards to the event.
"CBP officers are conducting their critical national security mission while facilitating the entry of legitimate travelers. An uncompliant passenger or any disruptive behavior could put many at risk in this highly secure area. Privacy laws prevent CBP from discussing specific cases."
So Wiz went to social media to let the public know that police brutality exist. It affects him.

So any thoughts on the matter?
Do you believe that this was a form of police brutality on the part of the CBP?
