Lauryn Hill kicks a fan out of her concert

By  |  116 Comments

Screen Shot 2014-07-26 at 10.50.37 AMLauryn Hill has zero tolerance for “disrespect.”

During a recent concert at the House of Blues in Chicago, the eight-time Grammy winner, who reportedly began her set 50 minutes late, had a heckling fan ejected.

In a video obtained by TMZ, Hill tells the man, who was apparently upset about her delayed performance, “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,” Hill says in the two-minute video. “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 proceeds to instruct security to escort the man out and issue him a refund.

“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,” Hill says. “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 see she hasn’t humbked herself yet! SMDH…why not apologize, and keepnit moving? Why address someone rudely who is a long time fan? Makes no sense to me.

      Agreed. She was an hour late and then had the nerve to be rude when someone complained?

    Obviously, Lauryn Hill has been through enough in her life to have garnered some respect for herself. Delays happen, and this one was most likely unintentional and was therefore excusable.

    If the fan had a big problem with the long hold up of the show, then he could have asked and probably received a refund.

    Good for you. He had no way of knowing what happened to make you late. No one’s perfect.

      I work part time at a venue (as security, not a performer) and Beyonce was performing one night I was there. She was an hour late on stage .. and I found out later from some people who’d been near the stage working that it was a combination of car trouble and traffic that caused the problems. No one is immune from those kinds of problems, including famous singers like her. She and her driver just had to weave through traffic and make it there as best she could, and get on the stage. The show was GREAT too. She and JayZ played until the wee hours of the morning. Just something to share about how these performers get delayed sometimes.

    I don’t blame Lauren . Boy bye, if you’re that upset then leave. She was nice to offer him a refund. People kill me. She don’t have to put up with him disrespecting her. Things happen, get over it. Sheesh!

    He’s not a fan. There were real fans there and we waited and received a GREAT performance. She was very HUMBLED. He was loud and RUDE. Beyoncé and Jay tour ” on the run” had no opening act and they were late coming on too but their concert like Lauren’s was worth every penny, no complaints from me. Good Job Lauren Hill.

    I totally agree. Lauren should not have been late … but I do have issues with someone heckling any performer for any reason. Talk to someone in the venue about an issue like that, or wait until she’s done performing and ask to speak with her .. but to interrupt someone’s gig and vibe like that. NOT COOL.

    She is known for being late. This is very unprofessional of her. I am not sure why people even pay money to see her. Glad the guy got a refund.

    • Lynn Magnuson

      July 26, 2014 at 3:13 pm

      She was being nice giving him one. She just wanted him gone so she could go on with the show … wasn’t trying to screw him over. Usually at where I work, if a fan is ejected like that … NO refund. He’s lucky she’s a nice person.

    Well I always say be on time. What the patron did was rude, but Ms Hill was also rude. She never apologize to the audience and she was more than an hour late, more like 88 minutes late, and that is inexcusable without some kind of reason.

  11. James

    July 26, 2014 at 4:25 pm

    Some of you guys don’t get it…u pay good money to see these artist and the very least she could have done was apologize for the delay…she wouldn’t be an 8 time grammy winner if that heckler wasn’t one of her supporters. ..

    Amen James…. 88 minutes late she should have been humble enough to apologize to all of her fans… then if he still persisted to be rude then excuse him…

    Right On! Upset about the delay? Leave. You don’t make a public nuisance of yourself, causing more of a delay. Sistah Hill proved to be more of a lady than he did of being a gentlemen. Late or not she refused to give up her power. Got my respect. Peace

    I honestly find that to be very uncool for any artist to be late. Being 88 minutes late with that kind of history of being tardy is horrible. Besides she’s washed up, crazy and has no respect for her fans. In my opinion she has a lot to prove and she should be held to a higher standard. The man waited and while waiting had too many drinks thus letting her know being late is unacceptable!

    These diva types are so full of it.If you’re an artist having a show to perform have the decency to show up on time or at least not be over an hour late,thats just taking the piss isn’t it? otherwise why have the showtimes on the ticket or posters for advertising?

    Lauren Hill was paid by the Catholic church to perform around Dec 18-22 in which she asked when would rape or pedophiles be addressed along with her performance. The church paid for one week after the second day that she address these issues for free people started questioning the priests churches, the public and parents. The richest church on earth paid Laren Hill cancelled any more performances refunded money then turned on her money power respect. If people are encouraged to disrespect wonderful black beauties then murder Bill Cosby son for attempting to buy NBC and having the world respect African lives. Now let us pay the less informed pretty girls and boys program them with (dumb vision oh tell lies vision) television distracting instead make the United States watch Scandal which teaches no one can respect a black woman and there is nothing that will not be done for a caucasian man Is this Miss Condelesa Rice and George Bush. I have been told if a movie was made about Mrs Michelle Obama why would you watch it not enough drama facts truth versus fiction. Oh, when the media attacked Bill Cosby with infidelity blackmail and the world found out he had supported the child for twenty-one years I did not read return every dime. Bill Cosby’s only son car did not have a scratch, wallet not a dime missing. This was a stay in your place just like the two times sellected President Obama Air Force One the plane almost crashed into his plane not only do they know where the children are think. Lauren Hill in my opinion taxes was not paid by the Catholic church because she honestly addressed truth to power. So take her away from her children and make her return to the corrupted music industry Cointelpro I R S tax same game different names. Wesley Snipes. You tube Dr. John Henry Clarke or Dr. Barbara Sizemore.

    Sorry for the typos missing periods grammar this funeral all I need to do is to read books like the Browder files by Anthony T Browder, Angela Davis, Stokely Carmicheal or Kwame Toure cause ethnic cleansing gentrification “Twelve Years A Slave.”back let you watch TV show YouTube “Like It Is” Dr.Yosef Ben Jochanan teaching facts not fiction. Lion King is the facts of stealing robbing Libya Mali Ghana today it is bring back our (gold resources)girls/They have been taking these girls for years why was this group so significant. Government relatives caucasian think if England and America make Nigeria like North/South Korea would it not benefit the value of the American dollar. War hides money laundering False evidence appearing real. Protect your mind write books tell your facts or liars will promote lies like Central Park Five read autobiography books.

    I have been browsing on-line more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It抯 pretty value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the internet will probably be a lot more useful than ever before.

    I intended to put you the little bit of note to be able to thank you so much yet again with the wonderful views you’ve provided here. It was simply unbelievably open-handed with people like you to offer easily precisely what a few people would have sold for an ebook to help with making some money on their own, precisely considering that you might have tried it if you ever considered necessary. These good ideas in addition acted as a great way to be certain that some people have similar dreams just like my own to see somewhat more when it comes to this problem. I’m sure there are numerous more enjoyable occasions in the future for many who scan your website.
