How do you get kicked offstage at an inauguration event? Dis the president. Rapper Lupe Fiasco learned this at Sunday night's StartUp RockOn Inauguration Celebration at the Hamilton Live. Watch security shut him down mid-anti-Obama rant and right after the performer announces he didn't vote for the guy. Twitterati retweeted foreign policy reporter Josh Rogin's firsthand accounts of Fiasco's fiasco, along with comments like, "So much for the First Amendment." In a statement, StartUp RockOn insists it's a "staunch [supporter] of free speech" and denies it was the un-celebratory nature of the lyrics that got Fiasco the boot, but the "bizarrely repetitive, jarring performance." In other words, he bombed. [Source]
