Afroman says he's headed for inpatient anger management rehab and is remorseful for viciously striking a woman at his concert Tuesday.

Afroman went on "TMZ Live" and said he was wrong to do what he did, but then he blamed a heckler and the girl who was onstage for being there.

Check out the video ... it's interesting. Afroman clearly regrets what he did, but thinks the blame is shared.

The full interview is on "TMZ Live" on TV, and Afroman tells us it's not the first time he's gone after a fan ... he did it in December in Cincinnati.
