Fan Arrested for Tweeting Alleged Bomb Threat at Pink's Concert


Pink


The sister of the 16-year-old unnamed fan explains that the 'bomb' on her brother's tweet is a reference to 'Timebomb', a bonus track that is featured in Pink's new album, 'The Truth About Love'.

A 16-year-old unnamed fan was arrested by local police after tweeting about having a bomb at Pink's concert at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on Sunday night, July 7. "@Pink I'm ready with my Bomb. Time to blow up #RodLaverArena. B***h," the fan wrote in a now-deleted tweet.

The staff at the venue reportedly recognized the boy from his Twitter profile picture and escorted him out before police arrived and arrested him. The boy has been released but is now facing criminal charges, including public nuisance.

The boy's sister has spoken out about the incident. She said that the "bomb" in her brother's tweet was a reference to Pink's song "Timebomb", a bonus track featured in her latest album "The Truth About Love".

"He didn't mean it like that. He wrote it as in one of her songs is called 'Timebomb' and he forgot to put the 'Time' on there... It wasn't a prank or anything like that. He told us he was referring to lyrics in a song," the sister told The Herald Sun on Monday, July 8.

She also said that her family was furious at the security guards, who treated her brother badly. "We don't think it should be going to court because of the way they handled him. They pulled him, they threw him on the ground and locked him up," she continued.
