Azealia Banks Gets A Beer Can Thrown At Her, Ends Her Set 90 Seconds In

Yesterday, Azealia Banks performed at the 2013 Listen Out Festival in Melbourne, Australia. Unfortunately, though, her set was cut incredibly short (i.e. 90 seconds into her set) because a “fan” chucked a can right at her, which caused her to throw her mic and storm off stage. A statement has since been released regarding the incident:

“Azealia Banks was forced to cut her set short last night at the Listen Out Festival in Melbourne on 5th October 2013. This was as a result of a member of the audience throwing a full can on beer at her on stage. The incident made Azealia and her stage crew feel unsafe. Banks would like to apologize to those fans in the audience whose experience was affected by the behavior of one individual.”

Well, we don’t blame her. In fact, judging by the footage above, we commend her for her quick, cat-like reflexes. Apparently this is the second time to have happened in the past two weeks, the first time at the Listen Out Festival in Sydney. Watch it go down above.

    You CAN’t just throw things like that at people. …Rude.

    You shouldn’t throw things at ppl but letting 1 person ruin your set for everyone else is childish. Shes always acted like the fans owe her more than she owes the fans. This girl has always been the worst. Shes as annoying as the girl at a party who lost her phone x 10.

    As much as I can’t stand her persona and online antics, she was well within her right to leave the stage after that. Throwing a full can of beer is dangerous and completely disrespectful.

    She throws too many tantrums
