Everyone had the same response to the 'bizarre' Kendrick Lamar BRITs performance
It was very strange and people decided to vent on social media.
Kendrick Lamar might be one of the GOAT, but not everything went right with his BRIT Awards appearance tonight.
The rapper won Best International Male Solo Artist earlier in the evening, beating Childish Gambino, Drake, Beck and DJ Khaled to the gong. Then later on, he performed 'FEEL.' whilst standing above a Lamborghini.
Your #BRITs 2018 International Male winner @kendricklamar brought @RichTheKid to The #BRITs 2018 to SMASH IT 💥💥💥 What a performance!

However, a technical problem appeared to delay the beginning of the performance, and despite it being near 10pm, ITV also chose to censor him - meaning that for viewers at home the song felt pretty stilted.
“This is another satire by Kendrick Lamar,” read a screen behind him as he performed. The irony was not lost on viewers.
And people on social media all had pretty much the same response:
Had a full blown argument about who was sitting on the TV remote during the Kendrick Lemar performance because it kept a saying “Audio Muted” 🙈
“YOU MUST BE SITTING ON IT!”
“IT MUST BE UNDER YOU ITS NOT UNDER ME!”#BRITs #BRITs2018

Are ITV taking the piss with the audio mute through most of Kendrick Lemar’s performance. How sensitive is society if you can’t have a few swear words in a song.

Everybody slagging-off Kendrick Lemar's Brit Awards performance, should try standing above a Lamborghini being smashed up whilst incoherently muttering swear-words! #britawards

Dear Kendrick Lemar - I’m sure you’re very talented but I don’t understand your stop start musical set on #Brits - it had me very concerned something technical had gone wrong. And did your mother not tell you it’s not cool to swear.
Love concerned of Stockport x
