Having an absolute howl watching this downward spiral. In the future, this sign - and his reaction to it - will be raised up as an example of sentient beings standing up for what is right - in a room full of wallowing fuck-tards.

FREE SPEECH!
Yes they might make a rousing musical about it "les misery guts".
Madonna can play the noble protester and Billy Bragg can play the poster - white one dimensional and clichéd.

Has a riot happened before at a Morrissey gig? I may be wrong, but the closest to a riot I can remember is when he flounced off after one song at Liverpool after a vicious assault by a bottle of water.
Kill uncle your 1991 America, loads of riots... you know nowt, tithead

WTF you on about? There were no riots. ZERO riots. Not one. None.

Some decent shows but what are you on about with “riots”?

Pop Singer Morrissey Blamed for Melee : Violence: UCLA and a promoter say he should not have urged the crowd to move in closer. The rush injured 48 people.

On the day after 48 people were hurt in a sudden rush toward the stage at a Pauley Pavilion concert, UCLA officials and a concert promoter blamed English pop singer Morrissey for the melee, saying he should not have urged the audience to move in closer.

Morrissey’s invitation to “get up out of your seats” and “come down here” prompted a massive surge, officials said, forcing people at the front of the audience against wooden barriers near the stage and touching off near-panic.

“He invited people forward,” UCLA spokeswoman Celesta Billeci said. “At the point he did that, everything fell apart. . . . Once an artist does that, it’s a little difficult to stop it.”

Avalon Attractions President Brian Murphy, who promoted the concert, agreed.

“The show was going along wonderfully up to that point,” Murphy said. “This was a crowd that really idolizes the artist. I think they would have done whatever he asked. . . . So when he said come on forward, that’s what they did.”

After the concert was halted, the promoter said that Morrissey agonized about his mistake and whether he should go back out and talk to the crowd.

“He was visibly upset at what had happened,” he said. “It was his decision not to go back on stage because he feared that what was started could not be stopped.”

Immediately after Morrissey summoned the crowd forward, some people jumped on stage to hug him while others trapped below the platform began screaming. Officials escorted the singer and his band off the stage, turned on the house lights and ordered the crowd to back away from the stage.

An hour later, when Morrissey had not returned, officials ordered the crowd to disperse. Outside, angry fans knocked down a souvenir sales tent and stole concert T-shirts and posters, witnesses said.

The concert was the first rock event at Pauley in a decade. UCLA officials said they will investigate Friday’s incident before deciding whether to stage future rock shows.

In all, 22 people were treated and released at UCLA Medical Center for a variety of minor injuries, most of them cuts and bruises, a hospital spokeswoman said. Fire officials said 26 others were treated at the scene.

Seventeen-year-old concert-goer Joan Moriarty said in an interview Saturday that security guards shoved the audience out of the pavilion. On her way out, she said, she saw a campus police officer wearing a riot helmet repeatedly strike a young girl’s back and legs with a baton as she screamed on the ground.

A second police officer grabbed a camera from a photographer recording the incident, Moriarty said, and slammed the camera to the pavement, shattering its lens.

UCLA spokeswoman Billeci, who attended the concert, said she did not observe any violence nor did officers report any. Campus police officials could not be reached for comment.

Morrissey, a founding member of the English cult band the Smiths who went solo two years ago, also could not be reached Saturday.

She asked for it.
She deserved it.

Now where have those phrases been used before?

Morrissey can use the live stage to promote his far right beliefs. A gig-goer who disagrees with those views cannot show her disagreement. She paid entry. I applaud her for making her views known in such an expensive manner.

I hope others are as brave at future shows.

We dont think He is a racist, hes a nationalist that doesnt want to give his paycheck to undeserving illegal immigrants. No one in USA supports unvetted immigration.

It’s not permitted to have those items in the auditorium, so you have to leave. Next.

I was merely responding to someone who said there were no riots when it was documented that there was. I knew someone who was among the injured at the UCLA show. If you don't care, then simply ignore the post. There was also a Depeche Mode riot in Los Angeles around that time.

Fuck Portland? Morrissey's base would let him pee on the first 4 rows and they would love it. He's no different than that other over-sensitive narcissist! He's lost countless fans and guess what? He so ingrown and self involved that when things go wrong he blames anyone but himself. Who does that sound like?

Oh dear, I wonder if he was upset by the protest and the news stories?
Morrissey loves this sort of thing, causing a commotion from the simple utterance of a few choise words. Then the media meltsdown, fair weather friends dissappear...and only true blue oldsters like us 50s and 60s old White boys and girls still kinda love this old boy. You just don't know how really great Morrissey was ...how really great The Smiths and that time of MTV and all the 80's & 90s were. Turning on Morrissey, means you'll be turned on someday too ya know. You gonna miss him when he's gone. Your o.k. Morrissey, thanks for the shows.
