Apparently some feminist shouted out criticism of Fiona Apple's body.
After close to 90 minutes of Apple and Mills trading off songs and, as they put it, “working sh-t out,” someone in the first balcony yelled out, “Fiona! Get healthy! We want to see you in 10 years!”
Apple, understandably, looked aghast, then hurt, then furious. She unleashed a torrent of vitriol at the unseen member of the peanut gallery. “I am healthy! Who the f-ck do you think you are? I want you to get the f-ck out of here. I want the house lights on so I watch you leave!”
That might have been the end of it -- the house lights did come on, and the shouter did eventually depart -- but the anonymous commenter decided to get one last shot in: “I saw you 20 years ago and you were beautiful!”

What are your thoughts?
I don't know if I could do that, that's why I don't do it. That's why I don't make people pay me ridiculous amounts for a ticket, just so they can see me stop the show and cry like a pathetic fool when someone says I'm fat/thin/whatever.
And that's my point. If you can't handle hecklers, don't perform. That's like being a boxer who faints at the sight of blood. Every now and then a boxer is gonna see blood. It comes with the job. If you can't handle expected problems related to your field, then don't be in that field. Apparently she couldn't, nor could Chappelle. People like that don't belong on stage then.
And if an adult doesn't know how to behave themselves, then removing them from the audience is easy. That's what security is for. But stopping the show or having a hissy fit?
They get paid millions for their "hard work." Least you could expect of them is to be good at their jobs. Very clearly they're not.
Let me know in case you should actually address any of the points in my previous post.
If all you have to say is basically "NO YOU!" then I can't offer you much besides an intellectually proportional "I'm rubber you're glue..."
There are enough women and men out there who "care" about anorexics and bulemics (I guess they're the ones who buy all those tabloids...someone must...) but most of these people would not consider themselves feminists (very few people do). This little stunt looks more like concern trolling.
I haven't been in an audience in years that didn't have its fair share of assholes.
