Canadian singer Avril Lavigne made headlines at the Juno Awards 2023 when she was interrupted by a topless female protester while she was on the stage to announce the performance of a popular Punjabi singer, AP Dhillon.

The protester stormed the stage wearing only pink pants with “Save the Greenbelt” written on her skin in black marker. The Greenbelt refers to an area in Ontario, Canada, that has been targeted by industrial development projects.

Avril responded audaciously to the sudden development, telling the disruptor to “get the f*** off, bitch” before security removed her from the stage.

During her acceptance speech for the TikTok Juno Fan Choice Award later that night, Avril made light of the situation by saying, “Now, nobody try anything this time. Or the Canadian will come out of me, and I’ll f*** a bitch up.” Avril also thanked her fans on Twitter for her win and joked about the incident, adding “P.S. – ‘Get the f*** off, bitch!'”

Meanwhile, despite the disruption, desi fans were thrilled to see AP Dhillon perform Summer High, becoming the first Punjabi singer to sing at the Juno Awards, held in Alberta, Canada.
