Avril Lavigne has apologized to the crowd of more than 24,000 attending baseball game between Tampa Bay Rays and Cleveland Indians. The pop punk rocker offered the apology after landing in hot water for throwing expletive rant during her concert at the game.
"We just had so much fun tonight and we want to take the tirade out and say thank you to the Tampa Bay Rays!" the "What the Hell" singer said for disturbing "the family friendly atmosphere" of the gig at Tropicana Field. "I'm truly sorry if anyone was offended by my language."
Beside Avril, announcer Rusty Kathy and Rays' spokesperson Rick Vaughn have also said sorry for the incident. "That's not what the Tampa Bay Rays are about," Rusty said to the crowd. Rick chimed in, "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."
Avril got furious after she was booed by audience when her mic didn't work during the performance. She reportedly snapped at the crowd, saying the technical problem "f**king happened on a baseball field."
Before singing live, Avril tossed out the first pitch of the baseball game. She tweeted later in the evening, "I just threw the opening pitch and playing a concert after the game! Fun :)."
