Canadian rocker Avril Lavigne confronted a topless protester while she was on stage introducing a performance.

The singer attended Monday’s Juno ceremony.

The topless woman had a message on her back that read “save the greenbelt”. It is believed the copy references a housing development planned by the local Ontario government.

The BBC reports that in November, the Ontario government issued new regulations to remove 7,400 acres of protected Greenbelt land and open it up for housing, with 50,000 new homes set to be built by 2025.

Before confronting the protester, Lavigne finished her speech.

After finishing her speech, the singer told the woman to “get the &*#@ off” the stage. Seconds later the woman was escorted off stage by a security guard.

Later on, when the singer made her acceptance speech after she received the TikTok Juno fan choice award, she said: “Now, nobody try anything this time. I’ll (mess a woman) up.”

Local Canadian pop star The Wknd was one of the major winners on the night. Nickelback was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
