Kendrick Lamar BRITS performance

People are fuming.

Fans were left angry tonight after large chunks of Kendrick Lamar’s BRIT Awards’ performance of ‘DAMN’ track ‘Feel’ was muted.

The ‘Humble’ rapper appeared on stage at London’s O2 Arena, but viewers at home were confused when the performance got off to an apparent delayed start - unsure whether it was an intentional part of the performance or a technical fault on BRITs end.

Things soon got worse when large portions of Kendrick’s performance were muted due to “offensive language”, despite him performing just before 10pm, so after the watershed.

Fans took to Twitter to complain to ITV.

Kendrick also performed ‘New Freezer’ on top of a glass cube as The Rich Kid smashed up a lamborghini with a baseball bat below.

Meanwhile, Kendrick Lamar won Best International Male at this year's BRIT Awards.
