Rapper Lupe Fiasco was thrown offstage and escorted off the premises of a Washington, D.C. concert hall during a pre-inauguration concert Sunday night, after going on an anti-war, anti-Obama rant, according to concertgoers.
Josh Rogin, a reporter with Foreign Policy magazine,tweeted late Sunday, “Lupe Fiasco just got thrown off stage here at the Hamilton Live after he went on an anti-Obama diatribe mid set.”
“So Lupe played one anti-war song for 30 min and said he didn’t vote for Obama,” he continued, ”and eventually was told to move on to the next song…Lupe refused to move to the next song so a team of security guards came on stage and told him to go.”
That’s it? The man said I didn’t vote for him because he’s a hypocrit? A tirade is now a 5-second lyrical number? Incredible.
The article said it was 30 minutes and that he refused to stop when asked. Does the white house ever look up who they book for these things? they had that korean rapper who said horrible things about the US army and apparently Lupe has said this in 2011 “During an interview with CBS in 2011, he called the president a terrorist. Lupe said, “My fight against terrorism, to me, the biggest terrorist is Obama and the United States of America.” Why would they even invite him if they knew thats hows he felt about Obama? Bush would have never invited Green Day to play at a pre-inauguration concert.
I thought his 30-minutes was OK - it was the 5 seconds afterwards that got him thrown off. At least that’s the way I understood it.
