Pink calls out concertgoer who sought to interrupt San Antonio concert: ‘He came here tonight to talk about circumcision’
A concertgoer to Pink’s 2023 Summer Carnival tour in San Antonio on Monday irritated the singer by interrupting a segment while loudly condemning the practice of circumcision, leading the Grammy-winner to have the man tossed from the venue.
The songstress, 44, who is mother to two children, 12-year-old daughter Willow and six-year-old son Jameson, with husband Carey Hart, 48, was involved in a controversy related to the topic four years ago after Instagram users remarked about her decision to have her son circumcised.
During Monday’s concert at the Alamodome, the Get the Party Started vocalist was in an acoustic segment when a concertgoer yelled to get her attention.
The attendee held up his phone with a message that read, ‘Circumcision: cruel and harmful.’
‘What does that say? Oh, you’re making a whole point right now, aren’t you? Do you feel good about yourself?’ the Just Give Me a Reason singer, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore, told the attendee.

The So What songstress wondered aloud why the attendee spent time and money for the purpose of disrupting her show to get her reaction to the message.
‘You spent all this money to come here and do that?’ the Raise Your Glass artist told the concertgoer. ‘I’m gonna have to buy a Birkin bag with that type of money … get that s*** out of here.’
As the man rotated to show fans nearby the anti-circumcision message on his phone, other attendees booed him.
‘He wants all of you to read it – he came here tonight to talk about circumcision,’ she said.
Pink asked security guards at the venue to escort the man out, musing that she felt bad ‘that he wasted his time tonight.’
The previous incident in which Pink was involved in talk about circumcision came in March of 2019, when she vented that she had received ‘f***ing disgusting’ remarks after posting a pic of her then-toddler son while he wasn’t wearing a diaper at the beach.
She said, ‘There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Going off about my baby’s penis? About circumcision??? Are you for real?
‘As any normal mother at the beach, I didn’t even notice he took off his swim diaper.’

She said that she ‘deleted’ the initial post because of the ‘f***ing disgusting’ feedback she received.
‘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,’ Pink said. ‘There is something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there. Smfh.’
Pink continues her tour throughout Texas with stops this week in Houston at Minute Maid Park on Wednesday, and in Arlington at Globe Life Field on Friday.
