Kanye West rebuked a fan who allegedly threw something onto the stage when he was performing in Melbourne on 5 December by repeatedly telling them to "eat shit and die".

The star was in the middle of a set at the Rod Laver Arena when the object was apparently hurled, prompting his freestyle retort.

This was made to sound slightly bizarre by the fact that West had his now trademark Auto-Tune effect turned on. The offender must have felt like he was being ticked off by an angry robot.

Watch the incident below.
