British-Albanian singer Dua Lipa has published a long statement after fans were forcibly removed from their concert in Shanghai on Wednesday, apparently standing in their seats, or waving rainbow flags in support of the rights of LBTG, according to The Guardian and other sources
In videos posted on social networks, fans are seen as dragged from their seats for safety.
Lipa published: "Last night, I did it for my fans, a promised show, I stood with them, I sang with them and I danced with them, I will join you all for your love and beliefs and I am proud and grateful that you I felt safe enough to show your pride in my show.
"What you did requires a lot of courage," he continued. "I always want my music to bring strength, hope and unity, I was horrified by what happened and I sent affection to all my fans involved, I would love to come back for my fans when the time is right and hopefully see a room full of rainbows" .
In a video posted on Twitter, Lipa is visibly disturbed by asking for calm. "I want to create a really safe environment for all of us to have fun," he told the audience. "I would love these last songs to really, really, have fun." How about that? "
The concert was the second and last appointment of the singer in China on this tour.
While homosexuality is not illegal in China, there have been many reports of persecution and marginalization in China.
