A Physical Fight Broke Out At The Awards Show Taylor Swift Went To Last Night
Taylor Swift called the NME’s the “craziest awards show ever” and damn, she was right. The “Only The Young” singer went to accept her award for Best Solo Act In The World, complete with its middle-finger-shaped trophy, but that wasn’t the most scandalous thing of the night.
Instead, an actual fight broke out after British rapper Slowthai was heckled during his acceptance speech for “Hero of the Year.” Tyron Kaymone Frampton sexually harassed the host, Katherine Ryan, under the guise of a “joke” during the show and when people heckled him over it during his speech, he threw a tantrum.
“Thank you for ruining my speech,” he said while pointing to someone in the crowd and then throwing his microphone off the stage and towards the ground before strutting off. But when a member of the crowd through the microphone back at him as he smoked a cigarette on the side of the stage, Slowthai rushed towards the audience, threw his drink, jumped off the stage, and tried to get in the hater’s face.

For the record, Slowthai has now apologized to Katherine and asked that his “Hero” award go to her as many criticized his actions and questioned his level of inebriation during the event.
(2/2) katherine, you are a master at your craft and next time i’ll take my seat and leave the comedy to you. to any woman or man who saw a reflection of situations they’ve been in in those videos, i am sorry. i promise to do better. let’s talk here.

It shouldn’t have to be said that it’s 2020 and sexual harassment of any kind will not be tolerated, but apparently, for some people, it does. What a shame. Anyway, watch Miss Americana and then stream “The Man.”
