Dua Lipa breaks down in tears as fans are ‘violently’ removed from concert after waving gay rights flags
She’s a fierce performer with bags of resilience.
Yet was reduced to tears, this week, after fans were forcibly removed from one of her concerts in China.
The critically-acclaimed British star, 23, was seen losing her composure as she entertained crowds in Shanghai’s National Exhibition Centre on Wednesday night.
Footage shared on social media appeared to show the attendees being dragged from their seats by uniformed security personnel.
Eyewitnesses claim they were ejected for waving rainbow flags signifying gay rights.
As she addressed the ‘violent’ incident on-stage, Lipa appeared visibly upset by the drama.
“I want to create a really safe environment for us all to have fun”, Dua Lipa told the shocked audience as she teared-up.
“I want us all to dance. I want us all to sing, I want us all to just have a really good time.”
She added: “I would love in these last few songs for us to really, really, really enjoy ourselves. How about that?”
Almost immediately fans took to to detail the incident.
“The guards took fans out of the show only because they wanted to stand up to dance with Dua Lipa during her show in Shanghai, China,” said one.
“And unsurprisingly the pride flag was also taken away by guards. Savage. Dua herself was sad on stage too.”
He added: “Actually a friend of mine was beaten red and blue in his arm. F****** animals.”
Another quipped: “It’s 2018, This is not okay. We all need to stand up now, refuse to accept this treatment and make a change.”
