Purportedly, she placed a bag down near the entrance of the embassy, threw liquid from coca-cola bottle at the doorway and shouted: "I'm going to blow this motherf-er up."

She returned to the embassy the next day and screamed at personnel and made statements about A$AP Rocky. When she refused to leave the embassy, she was taken into custody by secret service agents.

After her arrest, a police report stated that Kanter was charged with destruction of property and unlawful entry.
