Elton John stops concert to call security guards 'c***s' after they 'manhandle' woman
Iconic musician Elton John stopped a concert over the weekend to lambast the security guards at the event after they allegedly manhandled a woman attending.
While performing in Australia as part of his Farewell Yellow Brick Road tour, John stopped the music while still onstage to criticize one of the bouncers.
WARNING - The following footage contains bad language:
The incident allegedly occurred at the HBF Park Stadium in Perth. Elton John's profanity-laced tirade has now gone viral after footage of his rant was uploaded by concertgoers to social media.
The 72-year-old star can be heard shouting: "Hey! You two security guards with the girl! F**k off! Let her up here immediately … come on, you c***s ... Morons, both of you, morons. You don’t treat girls like that. Leave her alone you turds!"
Per British tabloid newspaper The Metro, Sydney Morning Herald, Channel 9 presenter Louise Momber witnessed Elton John's contrition afterward, and he allegedly apologized for his language and behavior.
Momber commented: "He was so angry. He said he can’t stand violence against women and had to say something. ‘He sang the next song and then immediately apologized for his rant — but said it’s something he’s really passionate about."

The acclaimed singer-songwriter has never been one to mince words or hold back his feelings. While performing in Verona in Italy this year, he commented on the United Kingdom choosing to leave the European Union as part of the 2016 referendum.
Elton John stated: "I’m ashamed of my country for what it has done. It’s torn people apart … I am sick to death of politicians, especially British politicians. I am sick to death of Brexit. I am a European. I am not a stupid, colonial, imperialist English idiot."
