Dua Lipa says she’s “proud” of fans after some were forcefully removed from her concert in Shanghai, China.
Videos posted on social media appear to show security workers pulling people out of their seats.
It was suggested some fans were ejected for waving pro-gay rights flags at the concert on Wednesday.
Writing on Twitter, Dua appears to reference this, saying: “I’m proud and grateful that you felt safe enough to show your pride and my show.”
Homosexuality isn’t illegal in China, although anti-LGBT attitudes do exist and some have said there’s a recent trend to sideline the LGBT community.

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
