Dua Lipa was reduced to tears this week, when she watched fans at her concert being brutally dragged out by police – for waving a rainbow flag. Videos have emerged showing the incident which took place in Shanghai, China.

Dua Lipa can then be seen tearing up after the altercation, telling her fans that she wants to create a “safe environment” for them, and that with “only a few more songs. [I] would love in these last few songs for us to really, really, really enjoy ourselves. How about that?”

Lipa later issued a statement saying she was “proud” of her fans:

“I will stand by you all for your love and beliefs and I am proud and grateful that you felt safe enough to show your pride at my show. What you did takes a lot of bravery. I always want my music to bring strength, hope and unity. I was horrified by what happened and I send love to all my fans involved.”
