He uploaded a picture and videos to Instagram, writing: "Haven't been slammed and cuffed in a while. That was fun... All because I didn't want to ditch the technology everybody will be using in the next 6 months. Do what you want kids."


A number of social media users have jumped to Wiz's defence, with comments including: "You weren't resisting arrest wtf that's just how they get away with killing so many black kids...", and: "Is this protocol? Yell things that are not happening? You should be building trust and showing honesty."

The Independent reports that Khalifa's representative did not respond to a request for comment.
