Kendrick Lamar stops white fan using N-word on stage.
A white woman has been booed at a Kendrick Lamar gig for singing the N-word on stage.
The rapper invited the woman, who identified herself only as “Delaney”, to sing M.A.A.D City during his set at the Hangout Festival in Alabama.
But Kendrick stopped her after she repeatedly used the N-word – which is heard multiple times in his song.
As the crowd reacted angrily, Kendrick told her: “You gotta bleep one single word.”
She appeared not to realise why she had been stopped, and asked: “Am I not cool enough for you, bro?”
The crowd in Gulf Shores, Alabama started booing on hearing the woman sing the racial slur.
She apologised, saying: “Oh I’m sorry, did I do it?”
Kendrick then asked the audience if she should be given another try – and despite many shouting “No!”, Kendrick allowed her a second run at the song.
“Every person can say what they want, there’s freedom of speech, but you have a responsibility,” South London grime artist Yizzy tells BBC News.
“If you use the word… and you’re not of any black heritage, in this modern day world, be prepared to face a backlash.”
