The Fixer....

In the 1970's, comedian Richard Pryor came out with a album negatively based on the kidnapping of heiress Patty Hearst. The album was extremely derogatory and personally attacked Hearst. Pryor called her a slew of 'vile' names and made fun of her situation.
When Pryor came to the bay area (where Hearst was based) to promote the album in concert. Allegedly, he was met at the airport by a security detail (fixers) from the Hearst empire and was instructed to cancel the show and return to Los Angeles.
The show was cancelled and Pryor returned to Los Angeles, shortly after this incident, the album disappeared from record stores but since then, it has reappeared and you can probably find copies on the internet.
