Avril Lavigne - Avril Lavigne Angers Baseball Crowd With Profanities Rant

Baseball bosses at the Tampa Bay Rays have apologised to fans after Avril Lavigne staged a profanity-laden performance at a game over the weekend (28-29May11), stating they were "extremely disappointed" by her foul mouth.
The pop star took the stage in Florida on Saturday (28May11) to perform a short set as part of the team's summer concert series, but was left angered when sound problems hindered the beginning of her gig.
The frustrated Sk8er Boi hitmaker finally unleashed on the technicians as 25,000 fans looked on in disbelief.
A Rays spokesman has since issued a statement which reads, "The Rays demand profanity-free performances from all of our concert performers, and we are extremely disappointed... It is not consistent with the atmosphere that Tropicana Field is known for."
Lavigne was also embarrassed by her own behaviour, and before leaving the stage added, "We just had so much fun tonight and we want to take the tirade out and say thank you to the Tampa Bay Rays! I'm truly sorry if anyone was offended by my language."

Wow, what and over reaction, I saw the video of what really happened and there was NO rant on Avril's behalf, yeah one f-bomb slipped out, but she apologized for, she simply expressed that this things happen at live events (technical difficulties with several microphones) in jest. No profanities were directed towards the crowd as the press likes to proclaim. The crowd even cheered her and the audience was clearly in to the show. The press couldn't help themselves and just had to over sensationalize the situation to gain more interest, but after I watching the actual video of what really happened I would say this was a non-event and hardly worth mentioning, . The show went on and the crowd was clearly into the show, I see this as irresponsible reporting on the media's behalf, which really makes me wonder how much we read and hear is actually true. Catch the video and see for yourselves...
