Odd Future deny that member 'Left Brain' slapped a photographer
Rap ensemble, Odd Future, have denied that Vyron 'Left Brain' Turner slapped a female photographer at a music festival in New Orleans over the weekend.
Turner was accused of slapping Amy Harris at the Voodoo Experience festival on October 30 but a spokesperson for the group says that there is no truth in the story:
"There simply is no truth to the accusation floating around the internet. It's no secret that Odd Future has a love/hate relationship with photographers at shows. [It's] simply because they are given access the group wishes their 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".
The freelance photographer will not be pursuing legal action but she points out that this is the first time that something like this has happened to her:
"I have worked many shows before, and I've had to deal with a band flinging water over photographers, but I never expected this to happen. In the pit, the male to female ratio is about 20 to 1. There were way more men in the pit than women".
