Rapper Lupe Fiasco Thrown Offstage During Pre-inauguration Event After Anti-Obama Rant
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.
A reporter with Foreign Policy magazine, tweeted last 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.”
Another attendee at the event tweeted, “Things going terribly wrong at @lupefiasco performance during
#SURO. Kicked off stage, bashing obama…”
This isn’t the first time the rapper, born Wasalu Muhammad Jaco, has been vocal about his dislike for the president.
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.”
