Badly Drawn Boy told members the audience to “f*ck off” at a gig in Los Angeles on Thursday (December 16).
The singer - real name Damon Gough - launched an angry tirade after stopping his performance four songs in due to sound problems.
Video footage, which can be streamed below, shows Gough telling the crowd at the Troubadour to leave, before branding certain audience members “LA twats”.
“I’m going to play some more songs, I’m trying my best,” he said. “Just f*ck off if you don’t want to be here. F*ck off you LA twats."
He continued: “I’m not saying everyone. I’m just saying the LA twats that need to f*ck off, not the LA nice people.
“We all know that LA’s full of nice people but it’s also peppered with a bunch of f*cking c*nts who need to get a f*cking life.”
Many audience members, who are audibly shocked, left following Gough’s comments, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Badly Drawn Boy is currently touring in support of his new album 'It's What I'm Thinking Pt.1 – Photographing Snowflakes'.
