First Kim K. had to deal with flour in her hair and now Lupe has to dodge tomatoes.

The Chicago rapper stormed off stage Monday night in Salt Lake City after a heckler tossed a tomato his way while he was performing “Kick, Push.” It happens a little over a minute into the video here:

Lupe responded by asking fans to come out of the balcony for their safety, which they reportedly did not do. Then, in a turn of events that pissed off feminists, he called the lady out of her name, equating her to a female dog. He also took to twitter to defend his stance. It wasn’t wrong to call her out, he said. Rather, it was wrong of her to toss the fruit.

I’m no fan of curse words. However, why do faux fans feel the need to toss food?

Full disclosure: Fiasco has been associated with Wrapports LLC, the parent company of the Chicago Sun-Times.
