Pink fan arrested after bomb tweet

WENN

A teenage Pink fan is facing criminal charges after he joked about bringing a bomb to the singer's Australian concert on Sunday.

The 16-year-old boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was ejected from Pink's show at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne after posting the message to his Twitter account as Pink took to the stage. The tweet, which has since been deleted, read, "@Pink I'm ready with my Bomb. Time to blowup #RodLaverArena Bitch."

Staff at the arena identified the boy from his Twitter profile picture and he was arrested just 10 minutes into the concert. The boy was later released from police custody and is expected to be charged on summons, according to Australia's Herald Sun.

His sister has since spoken out, telling the publication the tweet was an innocent reference to Pink's song "Timebomb," a bonus track on her latest album "The Truth About Love." She says, "He didn't mean it like that. He wrote it as in one of her songs is called 'Timebomb,' and he forgot to put the 'Time' on there ... It wasn't a prank or anything like that. He told us he was referring to lyrics in a song."

Pink will play seven further performances at the Melbourne arena before concluding her run on July 17.

BOOM!! -- OMG... I going to get arrested -- I said a bad word!  Is this the new society, we live in fear of words?  Do you know this means...,  the terrorist won and they hardly even tried. Are we the worlds freest people or are we highly regulated?
