One of A$AP Rocky’s fans was arrested Tuesday in Washington, D.C., following an alleged threat to blow up the Swedish Embassy.

Rebecca Kanter, the suspect, laid a bag down near the entrance to the embassy, threw liquid from a glass Coca Cola bottle at the doorway, and shouted “I”m going to blow this motherf*cker up,” reports Page Six.

She returned the next day and yelled at personnel while making statements regarding A$AP Rocky, who is currently behind bars in Sweden.

Kanter refused to leave the embassy, which resulted in her being taken into custody by secret service agents.

Following the woman’s arrest, she was charged with destruction of property and unlawful entry, according to a police report.

Kanter appeared to be protesting the Harlem rapper’s recent arrest by Swedish authorities. A$AP Rocky was charged with assault following a street brawl that took place in Stockholm on June 30.

The “Fashion Killa” rapper has been in jail in the Swedish capital since July 3, although he has maintained that he is innocent.

The rapper posted video footage of the confrontation to his Instagram account, which showed Rocky and his entourage repeatedly asking two males to stop following them.

One of the men allegedly hit Rocky’s security guard in the face with headphones.
