Brit Awards 2018: Stormzy takes dig at Theresa May, attacks Daily Mail in Brits performance freestyle

Grime star reigned supreme at this year's music event

BRIT Awards 2018: Stormzy calls out Theresa May over Grenfell Tower

Stormzy used his 2018 Brit Awards performance to take a swipe at Prime Minister Theresa May over her handling of the Grenfell tragedy.

Following a stunning performance of ”Blinded By Your Grace,” Stormzy broke out into a politically-fuelled freestyle where he lashed out at May for the way she responded to the tower block fire last year.

“Like yo Theresa May where’s the money for Grenfell?” he spat, adding: ”What you thought we just forgot about Grenfell?”

“You criminals, and you got the cheek to call us savages,” he continued. “You should do some jail time/ you should pay some damages... we should burn your house down and see if you can manage this.”

He also took a dig at the Daily Mail during his performance saying that the publication can “suck my d***”, in response to its persistent attempts to undermine him and his music.

The grime MC had a big night at the 2018 Brit Awards; taking home “British Album of the Year” for his acclaimed debut Gang Signs & Prayer, as well as the prize for ”British Male Solo Artist”.

People took to Twitter to show support for Stormzy following his show:

Another user called him a “national treasure.”

Another commenter said, “Stormzy using his platform to call out important issues such as Grenfell Tower (and telling the Daily Mail to suck one) is exactly how it should be done.”
