Azealia Banks is known for provoking the ire of many a famous person, but those feuds all seem to happen in the safe haven of the interwebs.

The Harlem rapper's most recent scuffle was with a fan—who lobbed a full can of beer at her head—during her recent set at Melbourne, Australia's Listen Out Festival.

In the video footage caught by a concertgoer, (see below) Azealia, rocking a crazy white-pleather skirt and matching boots, is completely caught of guard as she doges the can, mid-flow.

She then, visibly upset, throws her mic to the ground and storms off the stage.

An official statement from the "212" rapper's camp said the following:

“Azealia Banks was forced to cut her set short last night at the Listen Out Festival in Melbourne on 5th October 2013. This was as a result of a member of the audience throwing a full can on beer at her on stage. 

"The incident made Azealia and her stage crew feel unsafe. Banks would like to apologize to those fans in the audience whose experience was affected by the behavior of one individual.” 

Banks may have an obnoxious Twitter personality, but that's just messed up. A full can of beer to the temple could cause serious injury. 

We're with you on this one, Azealia!
