Rapper Kendrick Lamar, upon learning that she knew all the words to his 2012 track “M.A.A.D City,” invited a white female fan to join him onstage on Sunday to perform with him.

But when the fan, named Delaney, dropped the n-word — which was written into the lyrics — he stopped the music and told her to not sing the word.

Another fan tweeted about the incident, claiming that she made him “nervous” because the performance was taking place at Alabama’s Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores and she happened to be white.

Lamar then cut her off, as fans began to boo and shout expletives at her.

“You got to bleep one single word though.”

After she said she was sorry, Lamar gave her one more chance to perform, but she was so flustered that she stared mixing up the words.

Lamar then ended the song: “It’s over.”

But a few on Twitter stood up for her, saying that he if he didn’t want people to sing all the words he shouldn’t write words that some people aren’t allowed to say.
