Music News: Did a Member Of Odd Future Slaps Photographer?

A few hours after allegations hit the ‘net of Odd Future member, Left Brain, “slapping” photographer Amy Harris, the group’s rep tells Billboard.com’s The Juice that there is “no truth to the accusation.” source: billboard.com

“There simply is no truth to the accusation floating around the internet,” Odd Future’s rep tells Billboard.com’s The Juice. “It’s no secret that Odd Future has a love/hate relationship with photographers at shows. [It's] simply because sometimes they are given access the group wishes there fans would have instead. After telling the photographers to clear out multiple times (as they’ve done before) Vyron (Leftbrain) took a swipe at a few cameras, NOT people. To manipulate the situation [and] to insinuate an attack on a woman specifically is careless and manipulative”

During a performance at New Orleans’ Voodoo Experience on Sunday (Oct. 30), Odd Future member Left Brain, aka Vyron Turner, reportedly threw water and shoved photographers when Tyler, the Creator spoke on his dislike towards concert photographers for blocking access to fans.
