Rapper Loyle Carner Kicks Fan Out Of Gig For Sexist Comments

Loyle Carner, an English rapper, was filmed kicking a 'sexist' man out of his gig.

Performing at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, Carner took to the stage after the support act, Elisa & Srigala.

During their slot, a man in the crowd said something about Elisa's breasts, BBC Newsbeat reports.

"Tartan shirt, with the black hat, you gotta go, for being sexist, you gotta go," the rapper said on stage.

Following Carner's comments, the crowd began to cheer and he claimed the fan needs to 'learn his lesson'.

According to the rapper's Twitter, the offender has been 'banned for life' from the venue, before adding: "That shit will not be tolerated at any show."

University of East Anglia told Newsbeat it has a 'zero tolerance approach to sexual harassment' and it will 'take action'.

The Mercury Prize shortlisted artist was praised for his actions, much like Architects frontman Sam Carter back in August.

The singer allegedly spotted someone sexually assault a crowd surfer, before stopping the show and calling out the guy.

"I've been going over in my fucking mind about whether I should say something or not about what I saw in that last song, and do you know what, I'm gonna fucking say it," the singer said.

"I saw a girl, a woman, crowdsurfing over here, and I'm not going to fucking point the piece of shit out who did it, but I saw you fucking grab at her boob, it is fucking disgusting and there is no place for that shit.

"It is not your fucking body, it is not your fucking body and you do not fucking grab at someone. Not at my fucking show. So if you feel like doing that again, walk out there and fuck off and don't come back.

"Let's keep this going, let's keep this a fucking safe place for everybody, and let's have a fucking good time."
