Singer Badly Drawn Boy abused fans at a British music festival at the weekend, unleashing a foul-mouthed rant that prompted some people to walk out.
The 42-year-old indie rock singer, whose real name is Damon Gough, was headlining at the family-friendly Northampton Music Festival, north of London, on August 6 when he began trading insults with the crowd shortly after taking to the stage.
Gough made derogatory comments about Northampton and swore throughout his set, prompting audience members with children to shout at him.
At one point Gough told the crowd he was having "the worst year of my life".
Video of the performance was posted online after the festival.
One video shows Gough throwing his tambourine at the crowd as they boo while another shows him telling a lady: "Look I just had a relative of mine die the other day so f--- you, you c---".
In another video, audience members can be heard calling for an official apology.
Engineer John Townsend, 34, told the Daily Mail he was one of hundreds of fans who walked out of the event.
"At one point he targeted a woman who was with her young daughter and called her a ‘c---’," Mr Townsend said.
"It was just horrible, he looked drunk and dishevelled and obviously didn’t want to be there."
Audience members voiced their anger on social media after the festival.
"Had an awesome time at Northampton Music Festival, left a little early due to Badly Drawn Boy’s horrendous language at a family event," Sarah D tweeted.
"Don’t think he’ll be invited back after today’s performance."
Matt Round wrote on Facebook: “Badly Drawn Boy was nothing but an embarrassment. What a shame.”
"Watching the footage of Badly Drawn Boy dying on stage the other day. He's like a tramp that somebody handed a guitar and pushed on stage," Plush Cthulhu tweeted.
