After taking to Twitter to tweet the incident as well as his injury, a cut finger, Ocean posted yet another mention regarding the brawl, this time to his Tumblr.

Ocean wrote: "As a child I thought if someone jumped me it would result in me murdering or mutilating a man. But as a man I am not a killer, I'm an artist and a modern person. I'll choose sanity. No criminal charges. No civil lawsuit. Forgiveness, albeit difficult, is wisdom. Peace, albeit trite, is what I want in my short life. Peace."

Frank Ocean is set to perform at the Grammys February 10, wounded finger and all.
