Tim McGraw Seen Slapping Female Fan In Concert Video

The singer has also released a statement through his reps on the incident.

Tim McGraw has come under fire after a video was posted to TMZ in which he slaps a female fan on the head in the middle of a concert in Atlanta.

In the video, which was posted to the site on Thursday (July 17), the country singer is seen walking down the runway during a performance of “Truck Yeah,” high-fiving fans along the way. A blonde female fan appears to slap his leg, then a bit higher up, before he hits her across the head. She’s then escorted out of the crowd by a security guard.

“Tim was singing out in the audience and someone firmly grabbed onto his leg and wouldn’t let go as he was moving through the crowd,” a rep for the singer told TMZ. “He instinctively swatted to try to keep them from ripping his jeans (which they succeeded at doing!), and so he could get to more fans who could slap hands with him before the end of the show.”
