Yesterday, Azealia Banks performed at the 2013 Listen Out Festival in Melbourne, Australia. Unfortunately, though, her set was cut incredibly short (i.e. 90 seconds into her set) because a “fan” chucked a can right at her, which caused her to throw her mic and storm off stage. A statement has since been released regarding the incident:

“Azealia Banks was forced to cut her set short last night at the Listen Out Festival in Melbourne on 5th October 2013. This was as a result of a member of the audience throwing a full can on beer at her on stage. The incident made Azealia and her stage crew feel unsafe. Banks would like to apologize to those fans in the audience whose experience was affected by the behavior of one individual.”

Well, we don’t blame her. In fact, judging by the footage above, we commend her for her quick, cat-like reflexes. Apparently this is the second time to have happened in the past two weeks, the first time at the Listen Out Festival in Sydney. Watch it go down above.
