Killer Mike’s holiday season was briefly interrupted with some unpleasant news. On Monday (Dec. 27), the activist revealed that his Atlanta barbershop, the SWAG shop, was targeted in a vandalism attack. The Run the Jewels emcee shared a photo of the business marked with words like “Trigger Warning 2,” “Dave Grohl,” “Druce Wayne” and “Killer Mike” while calling out the alleged assailant.

“A mentally disturbed white man who calls himself ‘Druce Wayne’ did this to our shop downtown,” he wrote in a lengthy caption. “He lives in the delusion he is Kurt Cobain, and somehow, I am involved in a conspiracy to keep him silenced. I am angry and beyond upset.”

Noting that physical damages of his business can be fixed, he focused his attention on Wayne’s mental wellness, calling on the man’s loved ones to accept his offer to help.

“I know I can fix this physical damage BUT this man’s mind is terribly broken. If u are from OKC and know his family or friends please DM so u can get him some help,” wrote Mike. “I will for sure make sure we get this fixed, and I encourage all to check on your mentally ill loved ones because the world may not be as understanding as me. Love and Respect.”

Unfortunately, the vandalism at the SWAG Shop marks the second time one of Mike’s barbershops was in need of some repairs. Back in February, his shop was riddled with bullets. Per reports, the shop was caught amid a shootout between two Black men in the city, forcing the rapper to push back the date of the shop’s re-opening. Similarly, he turned his attention to the well-being of the shooters.

“Please consider what would have happened if one of y’all actually hit one another. The jail, the lawyer fees, the funeral cost and two Black families loss,” he wrote at the time. “I’m glad y’all cud not hit the side of a barn with a shotgun cuz this am y’all all are alive.”
