TAMPA, FLORIDA: Rapper Nardo Wick has issued a statement following the viral video that surfaced on social media on Tuesday, November 28, showing two members of his entourage knocking out a fan attempting to request a photo.

Wick expressed his anger on social media, claiming that he was "mad" after witnessing a member of his crew critically injure a fan, leaving him with a brain injury.

In an effort to draw attention to the incident, the victim's mother posted on Facebook, saying, "My son wanted a stupid f****in picture with his favorite artist!!! And this is what he gets!!! I am sick to my stomach to think about how this could have turned out!!!!"

Jacksonville rapper Wick expressed his condemnation of the terrible deeds on social media, but he said that he couldn't "control another grown man's actions."

The rapper wrote, "I don't condone what happened to my fan George after my show in any type of way, I expressed to him and his mama how sorry and concerned I was that it happened to him, multiple times before anything was even posted or on the internet."

He added, "I sent his mama my number instantly the night it happened. I was even gone make a post to try to find out who he was before his mama text me."

"I can't control another grown man actions, I ain't know that was gone happen, and I was mad when it happened," Wick continued.

"I tried to stop it as you can see in the video, and if somebody got the longer video you can see how mad I was, I love and appreciate all my fans and don't condone in what happened at all dat s**t ain't gangsta or cool in no type of way," he concluded the post.

Wick took a step further and released an apology video to his fans following the vicious attack.

Moreover, TMZ obtained Instagram messages from Wick to George's mother as well as directly to George adhering to the attack, where one can see the rapper was angry over the horrifying incident.

According to a Tampa Police Department spokesman, the victim is in "critical, but stable condition" and the authorities are actively investigating the incident.
