Lily Allen Just Burned a Kanye Flag But Not for the Reason You Think

When you buy a ticket for a music festival, there's a real chance that you might not love every single artist who is performing - that's totally cool and expected. What's not cool at all? Bashing an artist with a very public display of your disaffection, because just because the person you're dissing is a celebrity doesn't make you not a jerk. That was the message that Lily Allen sent fans at the Glastonbury music festival when Lily burned a flag that had a derogatory message about Kanye West emblazoned on it.

Lily was peeved when she saw a fan at the U.K. music festival waving a sign that read "F*** Kanye," and decided to do something about it. Lily took the flag and went over to a fire pit, where she proceeded to burn the offensive flag until it simply read "Kanye." Why did she do it? According to her Instagram page, it was simply a matter of good manners: "Don't got to dinner at someone's house and tell them their food sucks."
Oddly not the first time this summer that Kanye has been attacked in flag form: a music fan at the same festival brought a flag featuring an explicit still from Kim Kardashian's sex tape to the concert with modified lyrics to Kanye's "Gold Digger" underneath it. If Lily saw that, I imagine she might stick that one on the barbecue as well.

Kanye can definitely fight his own battles (he's a pro at shaking off the haters) but Lily's gesture reminded the world that spreading hate at a place where people are just trying to have a good time won't be tolerated by everyone. This is a case of musicians helping musicians, and I hope that if Yeezy sees a Lily-bashing flag in his next crowd, he won't think twice about roasting it.
