50 Cent accused of knocking out fan
13 September 2004
As Courtney Love will tell you, throwing a mic around the stage can get you
in trouble, if said mic ends up hitting a member of the audience!
50 Cent could again be in the line of fire. According to the News of the World, rap fan Tom Wilshire was knocked unconscious by the mic as the rapper was booed off stage at the Reading Festival.
As previously reported, 50 Cent and his G-Unit band were pelted with a hail of plastic water bottles from rock fans at the festival.
The 18-year-old, from Pewsham, Wiltshire said: "His parting gift to the crowd was to hurl his microphone into the audience. It hit me and my legs went from under me."
