A disrespectful fan, felt the wrath of Lauryn Hill. TMZ reports in a concert at The House Of Blues in Chicago, Lauryn Hill was heckled and flipped off by a fan, after being 50 minutes late for her performance. An obviously, frustrated Ms. Hill asked security to remove the heckler and escort him out the building, while returning his money.
Over the mic, Lauryn says to the heckling gentleman,
“You can go, and you can take all your money right back. When I get up on this stage, don’t be disrespectful. You could go … if a little patience is too much. It’s alright, you could go. I would prefer that. You not ‘gon mess up my vibe for the rest of these people. You not ‘gon do that.”
She continues with getting the attention of the venue’s security,
“Excuse me, there’s a gentleman over there who just did something I don’t like, can you please escort him out and refund his money. I don’t play that. I don’t need to win you over. You don’t need to win me over. And you could take all your money right back.”
“I do this because I love it, not because I owe you anything. You can get on your blogs and you can tweet and say whatever you want to, I don’t give a rat’s ass. I do this because I love it,”
It’s ironic, Lauryn is riffing to the fan about respect, but she’s the one almost an hour late for her own concert. She is known for her serial tardiness. However, the heckler should have never took it to that level of disrespect. What do you think? Do you side with Lauryn or the heckler?
