Avril Lavigne curses at crowd after Rays baseball game
Avril Lavigne cursed at the crowd at the beginning of her performance after a Tampa Bay Rays game at Tropicana Field Saturday night.
It’s reported that a technical problem caused her microphone to malfunction. When the crowd started to boo, Lavigne hurled a few F-bombs and other obscenities at the crowd, trying to explain that technical difficulties happen at a live performance--especially at a baseball field.
The embarrassed Tampa Bay Rays apologized to their fans in a statement on Sunday. Rays spokesman Rick Vaughn stated:
“The Rays demand profanity-free performances from all of our concert performers and we are extremely disappointed by the language used in last night’s show. It’s not consistent with the family-friendly atmosphere that Tropicana Field is known for.”
