Kid Cudi hits fan and pushes them off stage at concert in Houston? Nowadays, artists’ fans can get pretty rowdy at concerts and do some very bold things when they aren’t impressed with an entertainer’s performance. Pop star Rihanna got food hurled at her on stage at her show in Manchester, England while rapper Lil Wayne issued a threat to a crowd of his fans after one of them decided to throw a beer bottle at him during one of his recent shows. Some artists out there though have built a reputation for attacking their own fans as ASAP Rocky found himself in hot water for allegedly assaulting a female fan. Rapper Kid Cudi recently took matters into his own hands after one of his fans made their way onto the stage with him during his performance in Houston, TX.
Kid Cudi was performing his single “Cudi Zone” decked out in an Iron Man inspired getup with flames going off behind him. And right in the middle of his performance, a man comes out of nowhere and starts making his way across the stage. As soon as Kid Cudi noticed the man on stage, he made his way over to him and started to push him repeatedly until the fan fell off the stage right before security guards rushed over to intervene.
Kid Cudi had a few words to say about the incident as he resumed his performance:
“Not on my watch. It’s been five years. I’ve been waiting.”
This isn’t the first time Kid Cudi has gotten into it with one of his fans as the rapper punched one of them in the face during his concert in Vancouver back in 2009 however things didn’t get to that point this time around.
Peep the clip of the incident below:
