*In Salt Lake City on Saturday night, rapper Lupe Fiasco ended his concert early after being struck by a tomato thrown from the crowd, but not before calling the woman who tossed it a “fat, white b**ch.”
The Salt Lake Tribune reports the incident was sparked when a woman in the balcony at The Depot threw the fruit onstage during his performance.
“I’m gonna finish the show, but if there’ more people like that I need them the f**k out of here,” said Lupe. “I know what she looks like – fat, white b***h. Find her.”
Lupe then demanded that the entire balcony be cleared out, causing fans in that area to shout they were not leaving. The Depot’s staff attempted to empty the balcony, but a few attendees were still on the upper lever several minutes later, so Lupe walked off the stage. The Depot’s manager later revealed that the show was actually near the end before Lupe stormed off.
While some of the people in attendance supported Lupe on Twitter others felt offended by his choice of words directed at a women in the crowd.
The blink-and-you’ll-miss-it moment comes at about 1:12 in the video below, as Fiasco is performing one of his biggest hits, “Kick, Push.”
