US rapper George Watsky has issued an apology after his idiotic stage dive in London that broke a woman's arm and injured one other fan. The rapper was performing on the UK leg of the Warped Tour at Alexandra Palace in London when he climbed up the stage onto the lighting rig before launching himself feet first into the crowd from a height of about 40ft.

Through a post on his Facebook page, the rapper said: "The jump was not awesome, it was not badass, and it was not ballsy. It turned what should have been a great day for the people who got hurt into a nightmare. It was stupid and wildly irresponsible, plain and simple. I pride myself on trying to put on a good show and always giving 100 per cent energy, but jumping off some high shit doesn't make someone a good musician or performer. I feel fucking terrible. I made a boneheaded decision that got people hurt, and it's extremely lucky it wasn't worse."

He added he was not under the influence of drugs or alcohol when he performed the stunt, and said his health was, "fine, besides some nicks, bruises, and the shame of endangering the crowd."

The Californian rapper said he had been to hospital to visit the two audience members who were injured and also confirmed he would not be cancelling his remaining six tour dates in the UK.

"I will do the shows, as usual I will meet everyone afterwards, and I will NOT be jumping off anything. I am deeply sorry and I promise to learn from this mistake."
