Moment rapper hurls champagne glass at fan before lunging at him at NME awards
This is the moment rapper slowthai threw a drink at a fan before jumping off the stage at the NME Awards and trying to confront him after an awkward acceptance speech with comedian Katherine Ryan.
The video starts with the 25-year-old – real name Tyron Kaymone Frampton – telling the crowd: “NME thank you.”
He then turns his attention to a member of an audience to add: “Thank you for ruining my speech.”
The rapper chucks his microphone off stage before walking back to the DJ set, only to have the same microphone hurled back at him.
Another object is thrown at the Deal Wiv It hitmaker, although it is not clear who throws it.
Slowthai then walks to the edge of the stage and hurls a champagne glass into the crowd.

As the tensions flare, he jumps off the stage and is restrained by bouncers as he tries to reach a man.
The altercation occurred after a heckler interrupted his winner’s speech to allegedly call him a "misogynist" following his awkward encounter with comedian Katherine.
Another video on Twitter shows him looking at the 36-year-old comedian and telling her to “smell my cologne, smells good doesn’t it”.
When she tries to intervene, he shushes her and repeatedly calls her “baby girl”.
“If you want to do something later, see me later,” he tells the comedian.
“She wants me to tend to her flowers.”
Ryan replies: “You are like the hottest guy I’ve ever seen.”
He takes this as a come-on and tells her to “stop playing”.
Trying to end the awkward encounter, Katherine finishes by saying: “Let’s hear it for erm So Hot, he’s So Hot.”
After a Twitter user wrote that she had defused the situation with sarcasm to hide her discomfort, Katherine shared the tweet and added: “He didn’t make me uncomfortable. This is why we need women in positions of power.
“I knew he had lost from the moment he opened his mouth like any heckler coming up against a COMIC – not a woman – a COMIC.
“I was operating 2/10. What a sweet boy. I defused it. Tonight was fun.”
