    Mister Brown, the violence that you witnessed wasn't actually on-screen...

    I saw mc chris at Dada in Dallas a few years ago. Some guy was jeering the opening act (Piebald, I think?) and mc chris called the guy out and had him removed from the venue. I wholeheartedly agreed with that decision. Purchasing a ticket to a show does not give you the right to be a disruptive ass.

    This is different, though. Tweeting is not being disruptive. Even if you blast expletives, hyperbole, and all-out lies into your feed, you're not detracting from the collective experience of anyone else attending.

    Billed as a "nerd rapper", I'm sure that mc feels very strongly about bullying and people picking on his friends. Sticking up for your amigos is a good thing, but this is a terrific example of a good intention going way too far.

    Sorry, mc... I'm a fan, but you've let me down.
