Action Bronson Landed in the Hospital After Feasting on Whale Blubber

The rapper was in Alaska sampling local delights when he had to undergo emergency surgery. 

Action Bronson will most likely not be ordering seafood any time soon. While shooting an episode of the VICE web seriesF**K, That’s Delicious in Alaska, the rapper was munching on Bowhead whale, Beluga whale blubber, and raw caribou meat. He then landed in the hospital where he underwent emergency surgery.  [Update below]

The details surrounding just what the surgery was for are fuzzy, but we reached out to his publicist for some info and got: “No comment, but he’s fine.” Action tweeted similarly earlier today, so it looks like he’s on the mend. Stick to burgers, Bronson!

Update (8:19 PM):  According to Bronson’s publicist, “The emergency surgery was due to complications from ongoing hernia issues from Bronson’s powerlifting days. He’s doing great and is in good spirits.”
