Rapper booted offstage at pre-inaugural party for anti-Obama rant
Rapper Lupe Fiasco was kicked off stage at a pre-inaugural party last night for going on a 30 minute anti-war, anti-Obama rant.
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."
Before you start congratulating the entertainer, here's what he said in an interview last year:
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. I'm trying to fight the terrorism that's actually causing the other forms of terrorism."
When you have a radical president, you are likely to attract radicals to the party. And then there's the underside of pop music; Lady Gaga, the notoriously over sexed, over hyped "singer," will perform at the White House staff ball on Tuesday night.
