Spanish singer praised for ejecting violent fan
A famous Spanish singer has been praised for taking a stance against domestic violence after physically ejecting a fan for bad behaviour.
Alejandro Sanz was performing in Mexico when he saw a man abusing a woman in the front row.
After spotting what was happening, he shouted and gesticulated with his hands that the man should be thrown out.
The singer then stopped his performance and jumped off the stage to man-handle the aggressor towards the exit before bouncers took over.
He then told the audience “Sorry about that but I can’t stand this type of behaviour, especially against a woman” before being applauded and cheered. He also received a standing ovation.
The incident happened during the singer’s concert in Rosario, just one of the dates on his latest Latin-America tour.
The hall was packed with fans who captured his heroics on their mobile phones and it has become a trending issue across Spain.
Followers have praised him for taking a stand.
One tweeted: “Alejandro made the first intervention, let’s hope the police make the next one.”
Another said: “Tremendous as a singer, tremendous as a person.”
The singer also added that he hoped the woman would not be staying with the man following his behaviour.
Alejandro Sanz is an award winning, Spanish pop/ballad musician and singer-song-writer who has won a record 17 Latin Grammys, more than any other Spanish musician in history. He has sold more than 25 million albums world-wide.
