A$AP Rocky has some die-hard fans. One in particular seems to love him so much she got arrested last week. After threatening to blow up the Swedish Embassy in Washington, DC. Rebecca Kanter was taken into custody by the secret service, reported Variety.

Kanter showed up at the embassy’s entrance where she placed a bag down, threw liquid from a glass coca-cola bottle and yelled “I’m going to blow this motherf***er up,” according to an affidavit.

Listen to GHOGH with Jamarlin Martin | Episode 54: Frederick Hutson, PT 2 Part 2: Jamarlin talks to justice-tech pioneer Frederick Hutson, who founded Pigeonly to create communications products for inmates and their families. They discuss how he raised capital, the importance of focus, and spending too much time perfecting the product before launch. They also discuss Jay-Z’s blueprint for parting ways with team members via his break-up with Damon Dash.

Though police issued a “Be On The Lookout For” (BOLO) Kanter, she wasn’t arrested until the next day after she entered the embassy, began cursing at personnel about A$AP Rocky, approached a student group and kicked over a tepee and coffee table, the affidavit continued. She was charged with destruction of property and unlawful entry.

Rocky has been held in custody by Swedish authorities since July 3 due to his alleged participation in an assault. However, the popular MC has maintained his innocence. He posted a video of the incident to Instagram in which he referred to two men they repeatedly asked to stop following them as “a few drug addicts.” The footage shows one of the men hitting Rocky’s security detail in the face with headphones.

The report also states before her arrest Kanter complained on social media that her attempts to bring attention to Rocky’s plight wasn’t “breaking news.” Kanter is not the only one who is advocating for Rocky’s release. Tons of fellow celebrities, fans and even President Donald Trump have asked Sweden to release him.

His trial began Tuesday.
