Lupe Fiasco Kicked Off Stage at Obama Inauguration Lupe Fiasco Obama Slander

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 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.

Things going terribly wrong at @lupefiasco performance during #SURO. Kicked off stage, bashing obama.

#SURO slammed by @lupefiasco’s nonstop, anti-obama rap. Corporate sponsors scurrying.

A statement from one of the concert’s sponsors:

Disappointed that an artist took opportunity to use an event celebrating innovation/startups to make a political statement. #StartUpRockOn

UPDATE: Here’s the full statement:

Lupe Fiasco performed at this private event, and as you may have read, he left the stage earlier than we had planned. But Lupe Fiasco was not “kicked off stage” for an “anti-Obama rant.” We are staunch supporters of free speech, and free political speech. This was not about his opinions. Instead, after a bizarrely repetitive, jarring performance that left the crowd vocally dissatisfied, organizers decided to move on to the next act.
