Lauryn Hill being late for a concert is about as inevitable as water being wet.
Nevertheless, the folks who bought tickets to see Hill play last night in Atlanta were extra salty when she showed up at 10:30 PM for a show scheduled to start at 8.
That's because the venue had a strict 11 PM noise curfew, so Hill was only able to perform for about a half hour.
She blamed her driver for the delay.
But the Internet wasn't so forgiving. Just think if Twitter was around in the heyday of Lauryn Hill being late for concerts.

Lauryn Hill is allowed to be late to her concerts. You want a show that starts on time? Go see "Nunsense" or something. — Jake Fogelnest (@jakefogelnest) May 7, 2016

I wrote a paper about Lauryn Hill in the 7th grade and got points off for turning it in half a day late. I should have gotten extra credit. — jonathan frandzone (@NotAllBhas) May 7, 2016

Lauryn Hill wasn't running late. She showed up 30 minutes before her show was to be over only so she didn't have to refund tickets.— Transcends Fatness (@ReeRee_IsOn1) May 7, 2016
