Was Lupe Fiasco silenced? Or was it just a bad performance?

JAN 23, 2012 – Outspoken rapper activist Lupe Fiasco, started a controversy and debate, after his set "ended early" or he was "silenced and kicked off stage" depending on who you talk to at a recent presidential inauguration event held by Startup RockOn. At first it did seem a free speech issue, but after I looked into it deeper, it seems more that they let him have free speech for 20 to 30 minutes, but the staff saw and heard the negative reaction by the crowd to the jarring and repetitive rap, and asked him to move on to another song. It seems to me at that point Lupe got confrontational, and decided to keep on with the rant. The organizers then cut his mike and dimmed the lights, and he refused to leave the stage; forcing the organizers to physically escort him off stage. Even the organizers, Startup RockOn said in a statement, "We are staunch supporters of free speech, and free political speech. This was not about his opinions. Instead, after a bizarrely repetitive, jarring performance that left the crowd vocally dissatisfied, organizers decided to move on to the next act.” Many though are screaming his free speech rights were totally violated. Watch a video by NowThisNews.com of a few clips of his performance below and see for yourself.
