An A$AP Rocky fan was arrested Tuesday after threatening to blow up the Swedish Embassy over the rapper’s imprisonment.
Authorities said an initial incident occurred Monday when the suspect, named Rebecca Kanter, shouted, ‘I’m going to blow this motherf****r up,’ after tossing liquid from a cola bottle toward a doorway in the facility, according to an affidavit in the case which was obtained by Variety.
Kanter was detained for destruction of property and unlawful entry after going back to the building on Tuesday to make a scene yelling about the rapper’s imprisonment.
When she would not vacate the premises when asked U.S. Secret Service officials were lead to arrest her.

In her second visit to the embassy, Kanter yelled about human rights and toppled over a display in front of a student group passing through, TMZ reported.
As of Sunday, the New York City native Rocky, 30, has been in custody for 29 days stemming from a June 30 fight in Stockholm that Swedish authorities said was involved in.
The Praise the Lord (Da Shine) artist’s manager acted in ‘self-defense’ in the incident, in which he and two others ‘were harassed and physically assaulted by a group of men in the area,’ his manager John Ehmann said in an July 9 Instagram post.
The ongoing case had drawn attention from the Oval Office, as President Donald Trump last week got involved in the case after Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who have been involved with the White House in criminal reform matters, called it to his attention.

The president took to Twitter Thursday to vent after his overtures to Swedish officials did not get the rapper freed from jail.
‘Very disappointed in Prime Minister Stefan Löfven for being unable to act,’ he wrote. ‘Sweden has let our African American Community down in the United States. I watched the tapes of A$AP Rocky, and he was being followed and harassed by troublemakers. Treat Americans fairly!’
Trump added, ‘Give A$AP Rocky his FREEDOM. We do so much for Sweden but it doesn’t seem to work the other way around. Sweden should focus on its real crime problem!’
