Lupe Fiasco removed from stage following comments at Obama inauguration show – watch [View all]

Source: NME

Rapper Lupe Fiasco was removed from the stage for making anti-Obama comments during a performance for the US Presidential inauguration celebrations.

Fiasco told told the audience at Hamilton Live in US capital Washington D.C. that he did not vote for Barack Obama in the November 2012 election, and proceeded to perform a half-hour anti-war song, reports Complex. When he refused to move on to the next song, a team of security guards came on stage and told him to go, report journalists in attendance.

Fiasco previously described Obama as the "biggest terrorist" in America in an interview with CBS news. In another interview, this time with Philadelphia radio station Power 99FM, he described Obama as a "child killer", saying: "On one hand, you have someone who is a great speaker, but kills little children – our President… I'm talking about ordering a drone attack. Ordering drone attacks that go and kill mothers, innocent bystanders, children. Militants too, but the collateral damage. You're responsible for that, too."

All of which raises the question of why Fiasco was booked to perform at a celebration of Obama winning a second term in the first place.
