Solange and her husband took their son and his friend to see legendary electronic music band Kraftwerk last night in New Orleans, but things got ugly early in the show when four white women told Solange to "sit down now." They then proceeded to throw a lime at her back when she doesn't respond.

After the show, Solange took to Twitter to explain why "black girls/women are so angry" and "don't feel safe in white spaces" while noting that her family was among the very few number of black people attending the show.
