Rapper pulled off stage over inauguration anti-Obama rant

submit to reddit

American rapper Lupe Fiasco was thrown off stage by security guards as he performed a 40-minute anti-Obama song during a pre-inauguration event at a Washington, DC, concert hall Sunday night.

­“Lupe Fiasco just got thrown off stage here at the Hamilton Live after he went on an anti-Obama diatribe mid set,” Josh Rogin, a reporter with Foreign Policy magazine, posted on Twitter.

During the concert, the singer played a lengthy anti-war song and told the audience he didn’t vote for Barack Obama, according to witnesses. When he was told to move on to the next song, he refused, and “a team of security guards came on stage and told him to go.”

The incident with Lupe Fiasco, born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco, triggered a storm of comments on Twitter – the hashtag #FiascoGate became popular across the social network.

The Internet community clashed over what happened, with some asking why “it’s okay for Kanye West to diss George Bush, but it’s wrong for Lupe Fiasco to question Obama war policies.”

However, others disagreed that the rapper was justified, saying that anyone “defending Lupe’s actions tonight is an IDIOT. He was paid 2 entertain a crowd. The crowd wasn’t entertained at all.”

Many Twitter users also mocked the fact that the pre-inauguration event’s organizers did not research the singer’s past anti-Obama rhetoric before inviting him to perform.

This was not the first time that the US leader has come under fire from the rapper. In 2011, Lupe Fiasco called Obama – and “the United States of America” – “terrorists.”

    You may be upset as he didn’t deliver your entertainment, only gave life saving knowledge and like blind and deaf sheep did not listen.

    • True

      Santa: Only your govenrment is the terrorist ( your country is beautiful) and you need to act now because Patriot Act and all the Obumba executive order mean terrorism towards all US citizens as well. It is clearly visible now that NWO is a zionists plan to eliminate all who are not willing to become slaves! Now you are being disarmed ( based on massacres which have been both real and staged just for this purpose). You need to get rid of bankers and media bosses, the government will weaken and you will get the rest of those who will not escape (most of them will). USA stands on money and can fall down the same way. Remove the beasty ASAP, because otherwise they will get rid of you in FEMA camps…
