A teenage Pink fan is facing criminal charges after he joked about bringing a bomb to the singer’s Australian concert on Sunday.

The 16-year-old boy, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was ejected from the “So What” hitmaker’s show at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne after posting the message on his Twitter page as Pink took to the stage.

The tweet, which has since been deleted, read, “Pink I’m ready with my Bomb. Time to blow up (the) (Rod Laver Arena) B**ch.”

Staff at the arena identified the boy from his Twitter profile picture and he was arrested just 10 minutes into the concert.

The youngster was later released from police custody and is expected to be charged on summons, according to Australia’s Herald Sun.

The boy’s sister has since spoken out, telling the publication the Tweet was an innocent reference to Pink’s song Timebomb, a bonus track on her latest album The Truth About Love.

She says, “He didn’t mean it like that. He wrote it as in one of her songs is called Timebomb and he forgot to put the Time on there… It wasn’t a prank or anything like that. He told us he was referring to lyrics in a song.”

Pink will play seven further performances at the Melbourne arena before concluding her run on 17 July
