Calvin Harris calls fan 'dumb bitch' at Miami gig - watch

Scottish DJ hits out at audience member after she asks him to 'play something original'

Calvin Harris lashed out at a dissatisfied fan during a gig in Miami last week, calling the crowd member a "dumb fucking bitch".

The Scottish DJ was midway through his set at Miami's LIV Nightclub on Thursday night (August 29) when a fan began to heckle him, calling him a "sellout" and asking him to "play something original". In the video, Harris is seen responding to the fan defiantly, saying: "That was originally written by me. That's my song."

After a brief pause, a clearly riled Harris adds: "Oi! Why do you come to a fucking Calvin Harris show where Calvin Harris is DJing and don't want to hear a fucking Calvin Harris record, you dumb fucking bitch." Watch fan-filmed footage of the scene above.

Last month (August) Harris topped a list of the world's highest-paid DJs after reportedly earning £30 million over the last 12 months. He played over 100 live shows during that period and is said to earn around £130,000 per performance.

The star recently made chart history by becoming the first artist to release nine Top Ten singles from one album. The album in question, '18 Months', includes hit collaborations with Rihanna, Florence Welch, Tinie Tempah and Dizzee Rascal, among others.
