Justin Bieber, T.I., 2 Chainz, G-Eazy & more famous friends are sharing a petition urging Rocky’s release.
Following the creation of a Change.org petition on Tuesday demanding A$AP Rocky's release from a Swedish prison, countless celebrities have taken to social media to advocate for the rapper's freedom.
Friends and fans alike have generated a social-media storm with the #JusticeForRocky hashtag and accompanying petition, including Shawn Mendes, Kris Jenner, Nicki Minaj and Bhad Bhabie.
Rocky, who was arrested July 3 following an altercation before his performance at SMASH festival, is reportedly being held in a cell next to a feces-hurling inmate and sleeping on a yoga mat, according to TMZ.

Some of you may have heard about this case, while some of you haven’t. Last week, @asaprocky and two people from his crew were arrested in Sweden after an altercation with some people that had approached him and his team on the street in a provocative way. Since the arrest, Rocky has been placed in solitary confinement around the clock, that being only one of many inhumane conditions he is currently being held under. You can read more about this in the link in my bio. In my opinion, the treatment he’s getting is uncalled for, although I don’t want to speculate into what reasons or agenda Swedish officials may have for treating him this way. And I’m definitely not speaking out to condone or support any form of unprovoked violence. Hopefully, the people who were on the other side of the altercation are cared for and doing well. I can’t say that Rocky and I have the longest of relationships, but recently we made a song together that is supposed to come out soon. I was looking forward to sharing this track with the world, especially Rocky’s fans and all of you Walkers out there, but this is definitely not my focus when writing this. I know for a fact that neither Rocky or anyone in his corner are looking to get any special treatment in this case. That’s not my point either. I simply want to use my platform to shed light on a situation where someone is being treated unfairly. Hopefully, me trying to raise awareness can help to bring #JusticeForRocky, by him and his crew members getting fair treatment.
