Akon: From girl-humping to boy-hurling

R&B “artist” Akon doesn’t seem to have learned from his past on-stage debacle. The Poughkeepsie Journal reports that he had one of his security guards hunt down a boy in the audience who supposedly threw something at the performer. Brought onto the stage at a Fishkill concert, the boy was plopped down in front of Akon…who picked him up and hurled him back into the crowd:

Fishkill town police are looking for the KFEST concertgoer who on Sunday was plucked from the crowd by a security guard, directed toward headlining musician Akon and then hoisted by Akon on the singer’s shoulders and hurled back into the audience.

Detective. Lt. John Berlingieri of the Fishkill Police said talks have been held within the department regarding the possibility of questioning Akon about the incident, which occurred during Fishkill-based WSPK (104.7 FM)’s annual KFEST concert at Dutchess Stadium.

“We’re trying to identify that kid, just to find out whether or not we have any kind of criminal offense,” Berlingieri said. “We are looking to speak to him. No victim. No crime.”

WSPK General Manager Jason Finkelberg said, “Certainly, we’ll cooperate with anything they need from us.”

A message left with the publicity department of Akon’s record label, Universal Motown, was not returned.

During an April 12 concert in Trinidad, Akon was videotaped simulating sex with a girl invited onstage as part of his act. After the video was circulated widely on the Internet, it was revealed that she was 14.

As a result of that incident, Verizon pulled out as a sponsor of Akon’s recent tour with Gwen Stefani, with whom he appears on the hit song, “The Sweet Escape.” Akon, whose latest album “Konvicted” has sold more than 1 million copies in the United States, said in a statement at the time that he was sorry for the incident. But he also said he did not know the girl was underage.

Finkelberg said he and members of his staff discussed “the Akon issues, the history,” prior to KFEST.

“We did our due diligence,” Finkelberg said. “We talked to everyone we could find. We were comfortable with the show.”

Yeah, but how do you think that boy is feeling?

Here’s the video:
