Josh Rogin, a reporter with Foreign Policy magazine who attended the party late Sunday, tweeted:

    “Lupe Fiasco just got thrown off stage here at the Hamilton Live after he went on an anti-Obama diatribe mid set.”

Rogin added:

    “So Lupe played one anti-war song for 30 min and said he didn’t vote for Obama … and eventually was told to move on to the next song … Lupe refused to move to the next song so a team of security guards came on stage and told him to go.”

Another attendee at the StartUp RockOn event tweeted a similar story, saying, “things going terribly wrong at @lupefiasco performance.” The Daily Caller reports that it isn’t the first time the rapper has been vocal about his dislike for President Obama.

I'll just leave this like this and say nothing since every time I do say something I get attacked.

And then people wonder why I don't want to write here.

7:54 AM PT: Fine!

Since Inauguration is a proper noun this week it is capitalized. Since it is the modifier of the word party I capitalized that word as well. That does not mean it is the official Inaugural Ball.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
