Note to self: never throw business cards at Kanye West. A fan at a concert in Washington, USA learnt that the hard way after his antics nearly got the entire section he was standing in kicked out of the concert.

Kanye West is known to be volatile at the best of times and after spotting the cards being flung onstage flew into a rage stopping the concert, part of his series with Jay-Z for their Watch The Throne tour, until he could find the culprit.

West told the audience, “I see it come from that direction… Unless one person raises their hand and says, ‘I’m the one who did it’, all that whole section gotta go. We risking our lives up here, you can’t go throwing s— that we gonna slip on.”

After the culprit failed to own up West ordered security to kick out the entire section, a move that prompted the thrower to come forward very quickly. Security then escorted him from the venue.

Kanye West is coming to Australia as part of the Big Day Out tour in January and February next year. You can watch some footage of the incident below.
