Lupe Fiasco Removed From The Stage After Blasting Barack Obama!

Lupe Fiasco Kicked Off Stage Anti Obama Rant Inaugural Concert

Rapper Lupe Fiasco has never had a problem with speaking his mind — and last night was no exception!

Lupe, who's from Chicago, performed at an unofficial inaugural ball on Sunday night and managed to turn a weekend of Barack Obama-centric celebration into one of criticism!

After performing his song, Words I Never Said at StartUp RockOn's concert, Lupe was reportedly rushed off the stage, after the crowd of Obama supporters became furious!

One line of Lupe's track reads:

[Rush] Limbaugh is a racist, Glenn Beck is a racist. Gaza Strip was getting bombed, Obama didn't say shit. That’s why I ain't vote for him, next one either."

Though, the song is about two years old by now — you'd think the event promoters would have known that something like this could've occurred!

Not only that, but Lupe has never been one to hold back what he's REALLY thinking!

After the whole incident occurred, the event's promoters released a statement explaining:

"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."

Somehow, we don't think having an artist who openly has stated in the past that Obama is the "biggest terrorist in the United States of America" was the BEST choice for an inaugural event!

And, while we too support freedom of speech, maybe the promoters should've done a little more research!

Where's Kanye?! LOLz!

    Stop the crap, Perez. You don't support free speech. Whenever someone says something you disagree with you go out of your way to tar and feather them. You're such a freaking hypocrite you filthy ape.

    Um do they think we're stupid? CLEARLY he was kicked off for his disagreement w Obama. I am so sick of these darn Liberals. If you even THINK of criticizing him you are hammered. Good for Lupe for speaking his mind.

    BRAVO! Lupe Fiasco and ESPECIALLY…KRS-ONE deserve honors for revealing just who Obama is and how he works for the European Banking controlled 'New World Order'. Perez Hilton your new name is 'Finkelstein'.

    Good for him!! It's sad how black Americans are vilified if they even dare say anything negative about Obama.

    Sounds like they're back-pedalling. Free speech not allowed?

    What ever happened to freedom of speech? I guess when libs allow our 4th and 5th amendment to get shat all over and now attacking the 2nd, i guess they just don't value rights. While the 1st amendment may protect us from jail or fines (to an extent) it does not mean the public can "deem" what they find unacceptable and then create consequences for that person. Asstwats.
