A rapper who goes by the name “Phora” held a meet and greet with fans at the Hollywood and Highland center on Oct. 8 that had fans lining up early in the morning outside of Shoe Palace . At the meet and greet he bought hundreds of shoes for his supporters.
Many people showed up for this event, so many that at one point there was a stampede and a few injuries. Phora even brought his own private security, but it wasn’t enough to handle a crowd that big. Hollywood blvd and Yucca street were shut down because there were a lot of people in the streets stopping traffic. This was a really big outcome for Phora, because this was the first stampede event that has happened in Hollywood.
