S8ter Girl Avril Lavigne threw out the first pitch at the Tampa Bay Rays game and preformed at the Ray’s summer concert series for the Memorial Day weekend, but it isn’t her form that is drawing attention but that she shouted obscenities for all of Tropicana Field to hear. The incident occured as the crowd grew restless when Lavigne’s microphone stopped working during her opening song. When the crowd began to boo her, Lavigne shouted out obscenities just as her mic kicked back in broadcasting her feelings to all 25,000 fans.
The Rays released a statmenet saying: “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 is not consistent with the family-friendly atmosphere that Tropicana Field is known for.”
It is not known if the Rays will beef up secruity when the Wiggles come to Tropicana Park next month.
