Now that the commotion has finally died down, let us quickly recap the events that occurred Thursday, and discuss what the ramifications are for the parties involved.

The genuinely entertaining series of events began with a physical altercation between Ian Connor, Theophilus London and A$AP Bari. While at the VLONE pop-up event in Paris, Connor delivered a shot to Theophilus London and was immediately met by a flurry from A$AP Bari. The cause of the commotion ties back to Theophilus London’s comments towards Connor – calling him a rapist.

Here’s a timeline of the key events captured on video:

The squabble ultimately ended with an online war-of-words, where the involved parties took turns insulting and narking on each other over Twitter. Whether or not all the accusations were true, the back-and-forth was not something to be missed. London and Connor both, as an act of revenge, decided to share incriminating old messages, exposing each other’s sexual activities and giving out mobile numbers, in hopes of ruining each other’s lives – and “careers.” Here are some Twitter highlights:

What does this mean for the widely criticized, yet notoriously popular figure? This could be the beginning of the end for Ian Connor. For a cultural personality that hung onto the coattails of famous artists and musicians, association was everything for Connor. Now clearly having lost the support the A$AP Mob, and hindering his relationship with Kanye West – via his close connection to London – Ian Connor not only has no substantial bed of work to fall back on, he now has no one to cosign him. But it looks like Ian Connor has come to terms with his fate. He sums it up with the tweet that swears off everyone, listing out essentially all the important people he has ever been associated with in the past. It’s okay, at least he can still count on the internet to keep him in the news.
