*Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa are being sued by 17 concertgoers who suffered injuries when the front row railing gave way at their New Jersey concert, sending folks in a 10-foot freefall toward the concrete below.
As previously reported, at least 40 people were hurt when the barrier collapsed at the BB&T Pavilion last week. Several had to be hospitalized; one suffered a fractured spine.
According to the suit, Snoop and Wiz yelled, “Everybody in the mother******* grass bring your ass down here,” right before the collapse, reports TMZ. The plaintiffs say that call caused the stampede, which lead to the collapse.
Three of the plaintiffs were employees at BB&T Pavilion. Live Nation, which owns the venue, is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit. They say the company had made shoddy repairs on the railing in the last year.
