Pop singer Beyoncé was slapped on the butt by a male fan during her show in Copenhagen on Monday, shocking the celebrity so much that she stopped performang and told the man she would have him escorted out.
Beyoncé was singing “Irreplacable” as she walked by the stage’s edge touching fans’ hands, when one of them suddenly swatted her.
“I will have you escorted out of here,” she said sternly. “Alright?”
The slap was caught by an audience member and displayed to the whole crowd on the big screen over the stage. The show went on without further interruption.
