Dua Lipa ‘proud’ of ‘brave’ fans at Shanghai show
Videos on social media show fans being forcibly removed from their seats.
Dua Lipa has said she is “proud” of her fans after some were forcibly removed from her concert in China.
Footage posted on social media shows the fans being ejected, with some suggesting it was for waving pro-gay rights flags or standing and not sitting in their seats at the Shanghai gig.
I just CANT believe it. This is the show of Dua Lipa in Shanghai. All the fans are forbidden to stand out and could only sit on to see the show?!? If you don’t, the guard would use violence to kick u out. It’s unbelievable... #dualipa pic.twitter.com/quITZNLVxU— Ｎｅｏ (@imneo_) September 12, 2018
