While performing at the Mala Luna Music Festival in San Antonio, TX this Saturday (Oct. 26), YG pulled an audience member on stage, only to then kick him off in an awkward encounter.

As the fan walks onstage, he’s met with boos and cheers from the audience.

“I spotted you out in the crowd, I asked you if you f**k with Donald Trump, you said you don’t know,” YG said to the festival attendee. “So since you don’t know, I need you to make up your mind tonight. I want you to state your name, ‘cause I know your mama, your daddy, your grandmama, your grandfather is watching, I want you to state your name and yell out, ‘F**k Donald Trump.’”

When the fan shakes his head in refusal, YG asks him, “No you won’t? Get his a** out of here! He a Donald Trump supporter, get his a** out of here!” and pushes him toward security to escort him offstage.

The “F**k Donald Trump” slogan emerged from YG’s 2016 song, “FDT,” which appeared on his Still Brazy LP and features a verse from the late Nipsey Hussle. The hit even led YG to naming his 2016 tour the F**k Donald Trump Tour.

YG, along with several other rappers, has been outspoken about staunch opposition to the current POTUS. The “4 Loko” rapper revealed to Vibe that, after releasing Still Brazy, he was even investigated by the Secret Service and was forced to censor some of his political lyrics.

“The Secret Service called in on Universal and was like, ‘Send me the lyrics to YG’s album because we gotta see what he’s talking about,’” he said. “They did the whole album. That’s why on ‘FDT’ on the album, it’s parts of the song that I had to blank out. Then on the next song ‘Blacks & Browns,’ when Sad Boy’s spitting his sh*t—he said some sh*t towards Donald Trump too—they heard that, and we had to either change it or blank it out, so we put the static noise on top of that. But yeah, it was a real situation going on… Ever since John F. Kennedy got assassinated, they can’t have no people promoting kill Trump, shoot Trump, pop Trump, all that. And we had those types of lines up in the song.”

More recently, YG dropped off his 14-track 4REAL 4REAL album, where he targets Tekahsi 6ix9ine on “Stop Snitchin.” The Compton-bred rapper will be making the festival rounds at Camp Flog Gnaw and Rolling Loud later this year.
