UK rapper Loyle Carner was being praised on social media last night after kicking out a member of the crowd who was reportedly shouting sexist remarks at a female support act.

The crowd member was reportedly saying things about the support act’s breasts and, in a video from his gig at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, Carner can be heard saying: "Fam, you need to get the fuck out".

Carner tweeted after the show saying:
