Das Racist Kicked Out of the UK

London-based fans of Das Racist got the shaft Monday night when the band was forced to cancel their show at Cargo due to immigration issues. According to a post on their blog, they were confined to a waiting area with a few other parties whose motives for entering the country the authorities found questionable. Apparently, purveying their brand of humorous hip hop is an England no-no.

An update Tuesday afternoon noted that “We were not deported (or removed) because of our ‘political views,’ that was a joke. Maybe a stupid one.” Don’t worry guys, we get it. But the UK authorities obviously didn’t get the “Three brown guys walk into an airport” joke, and for that, we share the disappointment of your English fans.

The tour is not quite over yet. Get ready for double the energy tonight, Luzern, Switzerland!
