Miamians love Pitbull because he is one of their own. One of our own.

But apparently that doesn’t give the rapper a pass to refuse an encore song after performing in front of his hometown audience.

After Pitbull left the stage and refused to come back for an encore during his performance at the Calle Ocho street festival Sunday, his fans turned rabid; booing him, insulting him, flipping him off and throwing things towards the stage to show their disapproval.

Such is the life in Miami.

Otherwise, the Calle Ocho festival was relatively peaceful. I didn’t see any fights. I saw only one arrest. And I only saw one person passed out.

It was a mild one compared to previous years.
