(Newser) – Nerdcore rapper MC Chris landed himself in hot digital waters this week, after kicking a fan out of one of his shows for a critical tweet about his opening act. Mike Taylor had been unimpressed with opener Richie Branson, and tweeted, "Dear nerd core rapper opening for Powerglove/mc chris. You're not good enough to pander to me. Better luck next time." He then went out into the lobby and was drinking a soda when he heard MC Chris call out his name.

"I got up, walked back onto the floor and raised my hand," Taylor wrote in a Reddit post about the incident. "He then pointed at me and yelled, 'Security is going to take you the (expletive) out now! That's what you get for talking shit on Twitter!'" Taylor took the story to Reddit, and soon MC Chris was on the receiving end of loads of fan opprobrium. He eventually issued a tear-eyed apology on YouTube, Mashable reports.
