Kendrick Lamar slammed for inviting white fan on stage then kicking her off


Recommended Posts

KENDRICK Lamar booted a white woman off the stage in front of thousands after she rapped the N-word in his own lyrics.

The woman, named only as Delaney, was called on stage by the rapper and offered the chance to rap beside him at the Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, Alabama.

But when she failed to miss out the N-word from the Pulitzer prize winner’s 2012 hit M.A.A.D. City she was scolded by Lamar and ultimately booed off stage.

Some on social media have claimed the incident was set up by the rapper in a bid to get attention.

The white fan sang the N-word three times as she rapped along to the song’s chorus.

She sang: “Man down/Where you from, n****?’/’F**k who you know, where you from, my n****?’/’Where your grandma stay, huh, my n****.”

The rapper then cut the music saying: “Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, no, no, wait.”

Baffled Delaney didn’t understand what the issue was replying: “Am I not cool enough for you? What’s up, bro.”

Lamar replied: “You gotta bleep one single word.”

Realising the issue Delaney quickly apologised, explaining the slip up came from her being in the moment.

She said: “Oh, I’m sorry. Did I do it? I’m so sorry … I’m used to singing it like you wrote it.”

She asked to stay on stage and Lamar allowed her to remain under the proviso that she leave out the offensive word.

But when a flustered Delaney lost the rhythm on her second attempt, the rapper hoofed her off stage and continued his show.

The event has split social media with people suggesting it was a publicity stunt on the part of Lamar.

Tweeter Joe Vargas posted: "Kendrick Lamar stops his concert because the girl that he brought on stage to sing HIS song says all the lyrics & because she’s white she’s not supposed to say the N word that’s in the song?

“Kendrick can take the L for that. Don’t use the word if you don’t want ur fans saying it.”

Emily Baptista wrote: “This is so stupid though bc people make music for others to enjoy, listen to and even sing.

“So how is it wrong to say what’s in the lyrics when they’re just rapping/singing it how the artist would.

“If they don’t want white ppl to say it, don’t put it in a song.”

But some sided with the star with one saying: “My question for white people. How can you call yourself a Kendrick Lamar fan AND think you can say the N-word at the same time (that’s a question by itself)? Like are you really a fan? Do you not hear what he’s talking about in majority of all his songs???”
