P!nk recently had a concertgoer who was protesting circumcision kicked out of one of her shows during her Summer Carnival Tour stop in San Antonio, Texas.
During her acoustic set, a man near the front of the stage held up a message on his phone indicating he was vehemently against the common surgical procedure performed on infants, young boys and men.
According to Yahoo, his message read:
"Circumcision: cruel and harmful."
When the 44-year-old singer discovered his agenda at an inappropriate time and place, she called him out in front of fans, saying:
"Oh, you’re making a whole point right now, aren’t you?"
The crowd member proceeded to shout affirmatively about his lone endeavor.
P!nk continued, asking him:
"Do you feel good about yourself?"
The moment was caught and shared on TikTok, which you can see here.
She put on one hell of a show!!! Even handled booting this man with grace. #pink #concert #summercarnivaltour #alamodome #summercarnival2023 #pinkconcert #sanantoniotx #sanantonio #brandicarlile #fyp
The "TRUSTFALL" singer calmly continued:
"You spent all this money to come here and do that?"
"I could buy a Birkin bag with that type of money."
"Get that sh*t out of here."
The man proceeded to show fellow concertgoers the message on his phone, to which P!nk commented:
"He wants all of you to read it."
"He came here tonight to talk about circumcision."
As the crowd booed and jeered at the man, P!nk instructed her guards to remove him from the venue.
He was promptly escorted away by two guards without incident.
The clip ended with her commenting:
"I feel bad. I feel bad that he wasted his time tonight."
Fans appreciated how well she handled the situation.
This isn't the first time P!nk has faced opposition to circumcision from the public.
In 2019, she slammed trolls who mom-shamed her after she posted an Instagram photo of her son Jameson Moon—who was two at the time—swimming without his diaper.
"There’s something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there," she wrote in the caption.
"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.”
"I deleted it because you’re all f**king disgusting. And now 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. There is something seriously wrong with a lot of you out there."
The CDC, World Health Organization, and the American Academy of Pediatrics claim the medical benefits of circumcision far outweigh the potential harm.
They point to studies showing that the procedure reduces the risk of urinary tract infections and cancer and can prevent the transmission of HIV in heterosexual men, particularly in developing countries.
However, anti-circumcision groups like Bloodstained Men argue the removal of the foreskin of a penis without the verbal consent of a newborn or young male is an unethical and violent act.
But a P!nk concert is not the place to settle that debate.
