Zoinks! Looks like a party got rowdy over the weekend at a nightclub party hosted by Jermaine Dupri and Diddy.
According to People magazine, shots were fired during SoSo Def Summerjam, an event in Atlanta attended by over 3,000 people including Usher, Nelly, Gabrielle Union and Larenz Tate. One security guard was reportedly wounded.
Police said a few guests were upset they had to pay extra money to get into the party’s VIP section and one of them pulled out a gun and began firing.
What possesses people to bring guns to a party where everyone else is simply trying to have a good time? I wonder what goes on in their head as they get ready to leave the house:
“Cologne? Check. Deodorant? Check. Beretta M9 pistol with hollow point bullets? Check. Ladies, here I come!”
Or they call up a friend like:
“Hey man, do you mind if I borrow your Smith and Wesson XVR revolver? It’ll look really cute with this top I’m wearing to the club tonight. Dude, I know I still have to return your AR-15 semi-automatic rifle from the other night, but I promise to give them both back on Monday.”
(I play a lot of Call of Duty on Xbox 360, so don’t judge me. )
