Slowthai Hurls Glass And Fights With Crowd At NME Awards

Slowthai Hurls Glass And Fights With Crowd At NME Awards

Rapper Slowthai had to be held back by security at the NME Awards after he hurled a glass at a crowd member and jumped from the stage to fight him.

The confrontation began after the crowd member criticised the 25-year-old for his behaviour towards host Katherine Ryan, calling him 'misogynistic', according to the Evening Standard.

Ironically, the rapper - real name Tyron Frampton - was receiving the Hero of the Year Award at the time of the confrontation, and in a video taken by a member of the crowd, he can be seen saying 'Thank you for ruining my speech,' before tossing his microphone in the direction of the crowd.

Shortly afterwards, the microphone was then launched back towards the stage, along with what appears to be some food. At this point the rapper approached the edge of the stage and hurled his glass of champagne at the member of the crowd, before jumping down to confront him. Security staff can then be seen intervening in the fracas and holding back the furious rapper.

The initial criticism of Slowthai seemingly stemmed from comments he made towards host Katherine Ryan, who he asked to 'smell my cologne', adding that 'she wants me to tend to her flowers'.

Jonathan Dean, of The Sunday Times, condemned his behaviour on Twitter, writing: "Very hard to describe just how much of an a**e Slowthai made of himself at the NME Awards just now and how much Katherine Ryan put him back in his place. It was... excruciating."

Ryan was praised for how she handled the situation, though she has since said he didn't make her feel uncomfortable.


Slowthai also won Best Collaboration for his work with Mura Masa, as well as his Hero of the Year award, which was voted for by the public.
