Avril Lavigne -- Take Me Out to the F*@&%+ Ball Game!

5/29/2011 9:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Avril Lavigne was all smiles when she threw out the first pitch before last night's Tampa Bay Rays game, but she lobbed a few four-letter words at the crowd when a technical glitch messed with her post-game concert.

According to local reports, Avril's mic didn't work at the start of her show ... and she responded to the cavalcade of boos by yelling obscenities at crowd.

Rays rep Rick Vaughn tells TMZ, "The Rays demand profanity-free performances from all of our concert performers and we are extremely disappointed by the language used in last night's show. It is not consistent with the family-friendly atmosphere that Tropicana Field is known for."

Calls to Lavigne's rep were not returned.

UPDATE -- Several of our readers were in attendance last night and point out via our message board ... that while Avril did drop a few F-bombs, they weren't directed at anyone in particular. Her real fans, it seems, enjoyed the show just fine.

She's trapped in her label, she's gotta sing foo-foo songs if she wants a check. But this, this is the real Avril unleashed. *bleeping**bleep**bleep* all you *bleep* and *bleeping* *bleep* is what's really on her mind.

Actually I was there! She didn't direct her language at the crowd she was just being Avril. She put on a great mini concert and smiled the entire time. She was just as cute as she can be! I captured some great video of the show!

Press is press no matter if you are decent or indecent , and with it goes money in her pocket . She might as well be committing armed robbery, or kidnapping on camera . Some people would want to see it. I'm a musician who still believes we gifted people should be good role models !!

What can you expect from a punk no talent reject. It is not her lack of ability to sing that got her where she is. You connect the dots. Ever wonder how many couch auditions that may occurred in the elevation to some of the present no-talent star-"dumb" want-a-bees ? Some of which I have never listen to or cared to. However, to each his own as far as what pleases the ear. Also,to each their own as to how they arrive at the level of entertainment. That is very purpose, that the remote has a mute button and the radon has an off; and on control.

You freakin read neck Americans can't spell. TMZ had it right. The word (through)here is the definition, if any of you own a dictionary. (1) —used as a function word to indicate movement into at one side or point and out at another and especially the opposite side of

So my fine illiterate Americans, TMZ is smarter than you.
