Avril Lavigne had to deal with a topless protester who rushed the stage while she was introducing a performance at the 2023 Juno Awards on Monday (March 13) in Edmonton, Canada.
As Avril was introducing AP Dhillon, a woman joined her on stage and threw off her shirt. Wearing pink pants and a matching bandana, the stage crasher left her chest nearly totally exposed, with only a pair of pasties covering her.
After ignoring the woman, Avril turned and told her off. “Get the f-ck off,” she said. “Get the f-ck off, b-tch.”
It appears she was protesting a development plan in Ontario. She had phrases such as “Save the Green Belt” written on her.
According to Billboard, Avril referenced the viral moment when she returned to the stage to claim the Fan Choice Award. “Now, nobody try anything this time. I’ll f-ck a b-tch up,” she said.
Marvel star Simon Liu, who hosted the show, praised Lavigne for “handling that topless lady like a champion.”
The Weeknd won five awards and bring his total of Juno Awards to 22, which puts him in second place on the all-time Juno leaderboard. [Read More]
