Fan Booted From Concert for Negative Tweet [VIDEO]
Freedom of speech came at a high price in the case of a man who was kicked out of an MC Chris concert for tweeting something negative about the performer’s opening act.
On Tuesday, the fan was at the Powerglove and MC Chris show at Union Transfer in Philadelphia. He admittedly didn’t like the opening act and tweeted, “Dear nerd rapper opening for Powerglove/mc chris. You’re not good enough to pander to me. Better luck next time.”
Here’s what transpired after that, according to the fan’s Reddit post:
I walked out to the lobby, grabbed a soda and was sitting there when I heard the crowd went nuts and mc chris started talking, and I heard him ask for my real name. My friend and I looked at eachother confused and heard him ask for it again. I got up, walked back onto the floor and raised my hand. He then pointed at me and yelled, ‘Security is going to take you the (expletive) out now! That’s what you get for talking shit on Twitter!’
The man turned to Reddit and the story gained a lot of traction — or “blew up to ridiculous proportions,” as he put it in a recent Reddit post. Eventually it elicited an apologie from performer MC Chris via Twitter.
@AdmiralMikey I hope you take my apology sincerely. I deserve what I’m getting today and I will adjust my hyper critical attitude I’m sorry

The fan admits that his tweet was “petty” but adds that he only has about 100 follower, many of whom are bots.
MC Chris posted a long apology in two tweets, which he later removed from his Twitter page, but the fan saved and posted on Reddit.
Fans of MC Chris have been thanking him for apologizing on Twitter, while others show gratitude that he kicked-out the negative fan. Whose side are you on? Tell us in the comments.
