Kanye West is no stranger to causing a stir, and it seems some of his fans are great at stealing the spotlight — the wrong way!

A brutal fight broke out in the mosh pit during the Hip-hop icon's performance at Rolling Loud in Los Angeles, with the disturbing video capturing an alleged transgender woman battling it out with a man.

The viral footage of the brawl shared on X showed what appeared to be a trans woman in a sheer lingerie-style top and jeans throwing hands against a male concertgoer.

It is unclear what started the dispute, but people could be seen trying to hold back the trans woman, but they pushed them off to attack the other party.

Safe to say, this wasn't the best move on their part as the man came packing with stellar defense moves, quickly pushing back against the trans female.

The woman took numerous fists to the face and quickly became a battered mess — yet they kept holding their own and coming back for more. Despite the blood gushing down their face, the trans female refused to give up.

Other Concertgoers Seemingly Enjoyed The Show

As the brawl progressed, the crowd surrounding the fighters seemingly split into three groups. The first appeared to be enthusiastic fans, who excitedly cheered as they watched the fray while others tried to separate the duo.

Meanwhile, a few actively supported the trans woman and went as far as pushing them to continue fighting while shouting "WorldStar." Their chants might have influenced the prolonged fight, which got incredibly violent.

The trans woman continued to get increasingly battered by the man, from frequent punches to getting repeatedly flipped over and thrown onto the ground. Despite turning into a bloody mess, they refused to quit and kept coming at the man.

Ye's Music Saved The Day

Surprisingly, the duo eventually stopped fighting when Ye's powerful rapping skills echoed through the mosh pit. The crowd seemed to remember why they were there in the first place and began dancing to the music.

The battered trans woman was no exception as they dropped their beef with the man to participate in the Rolling Loud festivities — with blood streaming down their face. It is unclear if any arrests were made or how bad the person's injuries were.

Nonetheless, it is safe to say Ye saved the day, but the internet had other ideas. The viral video received mixed reactions from fans, with some trolling the trans woman while others sympathized with their plight.

Just days earlier, Kanye West returned to his infamous social media ways by penning a fiery clap-back at several brands and celebrities. He slammed this group for allegedly trying to destroy him in the past while celebrating those who stood by his side.

"Rich Ty Carti and the supporters that stood by us through everything. This number #1 is for you; it's for the people who won't be manipulated by the system," Ye wrote in celebration of his latest single, "Carnival," hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

The hip-hop sensation continued, "F— Adidas and everybody who works there or with them. Anyone who goes to school with anyone whose parents work at Adidas. Just know they tried to destroy me, and here we are with the number 1 song in the world."

His F bombs also extended to Vogue's contributing editor Gabriella Karefa-Johnson, Hailey Bieber, and everyone who criticized his 2022 "White Lives Matter" T-shirts. In Ye's words:

"And F— everybody at the fashion houses that sided with Gabby and Hailey Bieber. F— each and every one of yall. And it's f— Drake for taking [Lil] Durk right at the beginning of the Vultures role out. I'll come back to y'all if I think of more f— you's."
