Bjork gig outburst draws criticism

Rex Features

Bjork has upset some Chinese fans by shouting "Tibet! Tibet!" during a gig in Shanghai.

The singer ended her song 'Declare Independence' with the chant, referring to China's continuing rule over Tibet.

She has used the track, which includes the line "Raise your flag!", to give her backing to various political causes in the past.

However, Chinese fans have voiced their disappointment and concern at her comments on internet message boards.

One wrote on Chinese website Sina: "If she really did this, then this woman really makes people throw up."

A British fan who watched the show said: "The atmosphere was very strange, uncomfortable compared to the rest of the concert."

The incident has not been commented on by the state-controlled media in China.
