Slowthai may have been awarded Hero of the Year at the NME Awards on Wednesday night, but he was cast as the Villain of the Internet yesterday.

The Northampton rapper was condemned for his lewd behaviour at the London awards, and particularly for his treatment of host Katherine Ryan. When a member of the audience called him a 'misogynist' and threw a drink at him, he jumped into the audience and attempted to start a fight.

Now, he has apologised 'unreservedly' to Ryan for his 'shameful actions' on Twitter, suggesting that NME should forward his award to the comedian.

"What started as a joke between us escalated to a point of shameful actions on my part," he wrote. "i want to unreservedly apologise, there is no excuse and I am sorry."

Although Ryan had insisted that she was not offended, people denounced the rapper for his actions.

Ryan accepted his apology, telling the rapper - whose real name is Tyrone Frampton - "I hope you know that a bad day on social media passes so quickly."


However, some people are not happy that she apparently let him off the hook so easily.
