NME Awards: Slowthai confronts fan after winning hero of the year

They have loads to offer, starting from songs, performances to jokes, and jibes.

Taylor Swift seems to be embracing her life as a part-time London resident, attending the NME Awards last night (February 12) to accept the Best Solo Act in the World trophy - which, by the way, is a giant bronze middle finger.

Technically, Taylor showed face at the NME Awards before - through a video screen, that is. This irresponsible incident too took place over this time.

Slipping into the event with boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, Taylor got a little more than she bargained for during the evening when rapper Slowthai made some eyebrow raising comments to host and comedian Katherine Ryan before getting into a fight with audience members and getting forcibly removed from the event. This has made him attract a lot of hate and bashing on social media.

A video of the incident shared on social media shows the rapper tossing his cigarette and mic after a heckler interrupts his speech.

U.S. Claims Huawei Has Secret Backdoor Access To Telecom Networks
In ConsumerAffairs' research on the who, what, and where of this case, we found a multitude of telcos that use Huawei equipment. Huawei has never and will never covertly access telecom networks, nor do we have the capability to do so.

He then threw his microphone at the spectator and, after the man threw it back and called him a "wasteman", Slowthai then chucked his champagne glass into the crowd and launched himself off stage, with security holding him back following a brief tussle. The reason behind this remains unknown, but an act of this nature and magnitude is not acceptable from a public personality.

Rapper Slowthai has been criticised for a violent confrontation with an viewers member at the NME Awards. He did apologize for his misbehavior on twitter.

Slowthai has today tweeted an apology for his behavior, stating: "what started as a joke between us escalated to a point of shameful actions on my part. i want to unreservedly apologise, there is no excuse and I am sorry. i am not a hero".

The 25-year-old British musician then continued to drunkenly flirt with Katherine, 36, saying: "Babygirl, I don't want to have to do this to you right now, but everybody - she needs to understand the levels right now". I'm not a hero.

Earlier this morning, Katherine Ryan took to Twitter to write: "He didn't make me uncomfortable".
