Calvin Harris Calls Heckler "Dumb Fucking Bitch" at LIV Miami

Must be lonely at the top for the world's richest DJ, Calvin Harris.

Harris was once an underground sensation -- a favorite among late-2000s hipsters -- thanks to cuts like "Acceptable in the '80s" and "The Girls." Needless to say, he has taken a more pop approach to dance music since then, both as a producer and songwriter for acts like Rihanna and Kylie Minogue, as well as his own solo work. Everybody knows this. Whether or not he's a sellout is up to you to decide.

But one (former?) fan at LIV Miami this past Thursday decided to let Harris know exactly what she thinks of the direction his career is going.

In a video submitted by a LIV patron to Mixjunkies, Harris calls up the fan to ask her what she wants to hear. She retorts back, "Something original." Harris tells her the track he just played is an original work by him.

Obviously frustrated that he couldn't change her mind, he fired back. "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?" (Emphasis ours.)

Ha!

Not sure if that was the best approach. Why even acknowledge her, Harris? You're topping the charts and raking in millions every year.

After the exchange of words, Harris asked that the girl be "removed from the club by David Grutman." (Mind you, Harris asked her to come up and express her displeasure.) But it seems that his feelings were obviously hurt, as the source tells Mixjunkie, "[He] didnt speak in the mic or make eye contact with anyone, and I'm pretty sure he played a new vocal track and said nothing. Bitch killed his vibe."

"If you are coming to a DJ's show, don't be surprised when the DJ starts playing his own music," Grutman told us over the phone.

On his Twitter, Harris has made no mention of the incident.

We've contacted Harris' manager for comment. We'll update once we hear from him.
