Busta Rhymes was not very happy with a woman who went out of her way to touch his butt. And the rapper let that be known.
The Incident Was Caught By An Onlooker Who Shared The Video On Twitter
The rapper was spotted by onlookers as he was making his way through an unknown location. The rapper was surrounded by what appeared to be security guards. And loud music can be heard playing in the scene’s background.
As Busta walks along, sporting a navy coat, onlookers record the star on the phones. And some even attempt to get close to the rapper. But it was one woman who got a little too close for Busta’s comfort.
In the clip, a woman is seen walking close behind the rapper. Her demeanor appears to be calm and casual. But then, shockingly, she reaches her hand out to touch his butt area.
The rapper instantly turns around and appears to grab a water bottle from a man standing close to him. Then flings the water at the woman as she walks away with her hand up to her nose — appearing to find amusement in her action.
Fans are left looking at Busta, shocked at the entire incident.

Twitter Users Were Quick To React To The Incident
As the clip began to make its rounds on Twitter, users couldn’t help but react. Some criticized the woman for her actions. While others praised Busta’s amazing aim.
A lot of women feel like they have free range to grope and touch people simply because they’re women. Along with the fact that society has created this narrative that any sexual attention towards a man is welcomed and it’s not. Men get uncomfortable just like we do !

Bc why would she do that. I don’t know why men or women feel so comfortable jumping into other peoples spaces & boundaries and touching people without consent. she lucky that’s all he did. Everybody not touchy-feely.

I'm glad, people need to learn not to touch people if they don't invite you to do so. pic.twitter.com/LLgBtS3Nmo
