Rapper Jack Harlow demanded a police officer, who put his hands around a woman’s neck outside his concert venue near Atlanta, to be fired.

Harlow, 23, shared a 13-second video of the Cobb County police officer and the woman’s interaction on social media. 

In the video, the woman can be seen yelling in the officer’s face outside of the Coca-Cola Roxy before he put his left hand on her neck and pushed her away.

“This video came to my attention a few hours ago,” Harlow captioned the video on Instagram. 

“When I watched it I was disgusted by that cop and all I wanted to do was make something good happen for this girl immediately…I told the world to help me identify her so I could find a way to give her a hug and give her as many tickets to as many shows as she wants. But that’s not enough and its not a solution to a systemic issue that people who don’t look like me have to face.”

He went on to call for the police officer in the video to be fired.

“The next step is identifying this police officer and getting him unemployed as fast as we can,” he added. “Assaulting a young woman and putting his hands on her neck is sickening.”
