Styles P recently protected an unknown woman who was being arrested by police in Yonkers, N.Y.
Now this is what we mean when we say protect Black women! Styles currently holds the title of a stand-up guy after a viral video of the rapper defending an unknown woman has made its rounds online.
The video first surfaced on social media on July 12, 2022, thanks to Instagram user @trendykulturee capturing the incident. In the video, a Black woman can be seen tackled to the ground by two white police officers in Yonkers, N.Y.
The woman can be seen and heard saying, “I’m not resisting arrest,” as the officers continued to manhandle her on the ground. The woman who is recording the incident tells the officers that she is recording and shouts at the officers about their harassing the woman.
A few moments later, Styles comes on the scene and shares his feelings about the incident.
“Yo, he’s a b—h,” the rapper yells about one of the officers. He then proceeds to tell the woman to continue filming the incident.
The officers can be heard telling both the woman recording and Styles P to back up.
“Yo keep recording, keep recording,” Styles tells the woman holding the camera.
The rapper then focuses on the woman being detained by the officers, telling her to “loosen up” and “relax.”
“Yo, you're a h-e dawg,” Styles tells one of the officers. You a whole b—h.”
The woman recording can also be heard saying that “she’s a woman” in regards to the officers handling the detained woman in a rough manner.
The officer then gets up and proceeds to tell Styles to “back up” to which the rapper responds, “I’m going to back up, don’t touch me.”
As the officer continues to walk toward Styles, the rapper tells the police officer that he’s acting scary. The officer then questions Styles' claims about his being scared, which prompts Styles to call out the officer for telling him to back up while still coming toward him. Styles then yells and tells the woman recording to keep recording him as the incident continues to escalate.
“Your partner is a b—h,” Styles tells the officer with his hands up. “He slammed a girl for no reason and she’s on the floor.”
The woman recording also calls out the officers for mistreating the woman and accusing them of only being rough with women instead of men.
Styles also made it a point to say that the cops are not from around Yonkers and feel the need to use excessive force because they’re scared.
It’s no secret that officers have been known to use excessive force which has led to severe injuries and deaths of multiple men and women of color. There’s no telling why the woman was being detained, but the video clearly shows that the force used was unnecessary.
Black Twitter has since praised Styles P for doing the right thing and confronting the officers for their blatant missteps during the interaction. At this time, it's unclear what crime the detained woman committed.
