Avril confirmed earlier this month that she had moved on with rapper Tyga, following her split from fiancé Mod Sun.
However, fans of the rapper and singer Mod Sun do not appear to have taken the news well at a concert in New York City on Wednesday night.
After a fellow rapper finished a speech praising the 36-year-old musician, he ended up yelling, “F*** Tyga,” prompting the crowd to rally.

On video obtained by TMZpeople in the audience were seen chanting the obscene phrase and shaking their fists in triumph.
Meanwhile, Mod Sun (real name: Derek Smith) seemed embarrassed and humiliated at the apparent show of solidarity.
The commotion began with a speech by rapper Travie McCoy, who was joining Mod Sun on his show.
“I just wanted to give all the love I have in my heart right now to a brother, Mod Sun,” he began, before describing how the two met on Melrose Avenue and proclaimed their love for each other.
“I will say this: he is one of the three most loyal motherfuckers I have ever met in my life,” he continued.
After listing all three, he added, “F***Tyga,” before flashing his middle finger at the audience with a wide smile.
After the audience erupted in applause, Mod ran to the back of the stage and climbed up a small rise before hiding behind it.
Avril and Mod Sun got engaged during a trip to Paris in March 2022.
Despite the reported problems in their relationship, a rep for Mod Sun described the split as coming out of nowhere and claimed that Avril ended things while he was away after starting his current tour.
“They were together and engaged for 3 days when he went on tour, so if anything has changed, it’s news to him,” they said.
Cheating was not cited as the cause of the split, but Avril was seen out on a friendly night out with rapper Tyga just as the news broke, though it was reported that they had been friends for some time.
