Pharell Williams' Rep Clarifies His Nazi Salute


Pharrell Williams


'Pharrell is throwing up the 'Star Trek' sign, which is also the sign for his record label, Star Trak,' the rep says about the rapper's hand gesture at a recent concert that provoked controversy.

A spokesperson for Pharrell Williams has fired back at reports suggesting the hip-hop star performed an offensive Nazi salute during a recent concert in Las Vegas, insisting the allegations are "downright silly".

Williams hit the stage in Sin City with his band N.E.R.D for a gig earlier this week, and he upset some fans by allegedly mimicking the hand gesture previously adopted by infamous Nazi leader Adolf Hitler.

Video footage of the incident has since been posted online, provoking further controversy - but the producer/rapper's aides have moved quickly to shoot down claims he acted inappropriately and offensively.

His rep tells TMZ.com, "You can't see it because his hand isn't in the picture, but Pharrell is throwing up the "Star Trek" sign, which is also the sign for his record label, Star Trak. To suggest that he is doing anything else is wrong and downright silly."
