A concertgoer at Pink's show in San Antonio was kicked out after disrupting a segment to protest the practice of circumcision.

During a show on Monday night (September 25), the Grammy-winning pop star was about to perform the acoustic segment of her Summer Carnival tour when an attendee yelled to get her attention.

As the 44-year-old singer - whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore Hart - noticed the protester, she paused and leaned forward to read the message displayed on his phone.

It was then revealed in fan footage posted to social media platforms that the message on his device read: "Circumcision: cruel and harmful."

The 'So What' singer spoke directly at the man after noticing his bizarre statement and questioned: "Oh, you’re making a whole point right now, aren’t you? Do you feel good about yourself?"

He was seemingly galvanized by the acknowledgment, as he kept his phone up and enthusiastically exclaimed "Yes!" in response.

Watch the moment below:

"Are you gonna be all right?", Pink then asked him dryly. "You spent all this money to come here and do that?" At this point, other attendees were cheering her on.

"I'm gonna have to buy a Birkin bag with that ticket money. Get that s*** out of here," she added. The concertgoer then turned around to share his message with the rest of the crowd, who all booed in response.

"He wants all of you to read it. He came here tonight to talk about circumcision," Pink remarked, which prompted the man to react to her words by hollering in the direction of the stage.

Clearly, she had enough of his tantrum as she instructed security to remove him by saying: "Get that cancer out, man," and watched him be escorted from the audience area.

She then quipped that she felt "bad" that the protester "wasted his time tonight".

Interestingly enough, Pink is no stranger to unsolicited opinions about circumcision.

Back in 2019, she slammed internet trolls for flooding her with "f***ing disgusting" comments under a now-deleted Instagram post that showed her then-two-year-old son, Jameson Moon, (now six) without his swim diaper near a pool.

"There's something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there," Pink wrote in a follow-up post. "Going off about my baby's p***s? About circumcision??? Are you for real? As any normal mother at the beach, I didn't even notice he took off his swim diaper."

The 'Just Give Me A Reason' vocalist accompanied the message with a snapshot of her kneeling before a pelican with her son, whose nude bottom half was scribbled out, and daughter Willow Sage, then seven (now 12).

"I deleted it because you’re all f***ing disgusting. And now I’m turning off my comments and shaking my head at the state of social media and keyboard warriors, and the negativity that you bring to other people's lives," she continued. "There is something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Smfh."

The musician concluded by addressing the photo she shared, sarcastically penning: "Here’s a picture of the pelican we obviously caught and abused for hours before dangling baby p***s in its face."
