Sir Elton John seems to be a fighter when it comes to respecting the rights of women.
During a live performance in Australia over the weekend, Elton John fought for one of his female fans when security reportedly manhandled her, HuffPost reports.
The singer, who is on the Aussie leg of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour did not hold back when he spotted a fan being escorted out of his show in Perth.
The 72-year-old interrupted his set to demand the fan was returned to her seat “immediately”, labeling the security guards “c***s” in the process.
“Hey, you two security guards with the girl, fuck off,’ Elton can be heard saying in a video that’s been shared by fans at the gig. Let her up here immediately, come on, you c***s. Morons, both of you, morons. You don’t treat girls like that. Leave her alone you turds.”
The fans threw him applause as appreciation for him stepping into the situation. However, he sang the next song and then immediately apologised for his rant, but said it’s something he’s really passionate about.
It’s not the first time Elton has stopped a performance to have a go at someone. Last year, he ended up telling a fan to ‘fuck off’ before storming off stage during a show in Las Vegas.
Born Reginald Kenneth Dwight, Sir Elton Hercules John is an English singer, songwriter, pianist, and composer who has sold more than 300 million records, making him one of the world’s best-selling music artists.
