Chanel West Coast was reportedly a raging drunk last night in West Hollywood, when she was arrested for fighting, kicking and punching a cop following a separate brawl with a club-hopping female. Now that the booze has subsided in her system, the stalwart Young Money artist is suddenly an activist against police brutality.
“I was assaulted by police last night for no reason and have bruises all over my arms,” Chanel West Coast cried on Twitter, posting photos of the bruises she allegedly suffered during her tussles. “Police have gotten out of fucking hand in this country!!! This shit ain’t a race issue its a cop issue!!!! Time to put an end to this!!!”
Naturally we did some digging to revisit Chanel West Coast’s prolific thoughts on the McKinney, Texas incident, but unfortunately came up empty. The Los Angeles native is mostly known for her role on MTV’s Ridiculousness as well as public outbursts (see this year’s Coachella).
“I was violently held by 2 huge men cops last night for nothing and have bruises all over my arms…Can someone explain why a tiny 5’3 98lb women needs 2 men officers to hold her down and bruise her arms????? Last night I witnessed police brutality first hand and I’m completely outraged. There are real criminals out there and I’m getting arrested?,” she continued.
Black Twitter didn’t let Chanel West Coast’s bellyaching slide and they let her have it. Check out the bruises and the backlash in the gallery.
