Lauryn Hill kicks a fan out of her show: ‘You can get your money and go’

Lauryn Hill performs 'Final Hour' at NYC Bowery

Lauryn Hill isn’t one to take abuse lightly. The singer-rapper recently had a fan kicked out of her show in Chicago, Illinoi,s after she said the person disrespected her. She spoke to the attendee about disrespect before having security throw them out — allegedly after she was flipped off.

“When I get up on this stage, don’t be disrespectful,”  Hill says in a video posted by TMZ. “You can go. Seriously. You can go … I would prefer that. You’re not gonna mess [this] up for the rest of these people. You can get your money and go. I’m alright with that. I’m okay with that.”

Hill was reportedly an hour late taking the stage when the fan began to heckle her.

“I don’t play that,” Hill says. “I don’t need to win you over. You don’t need to win me over. You can go and you can get all your money right back. I do this because I love it, not because I owe you anything. You understand that? You can get on your blogs and you can tweet. You can say whatever you want to. I don’t give a rat’s a–.”
