Steven Tyler shoves selfie-seeking fan on ‘Today’ show: ‘This is live television!’
Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler was seen on camera shoving a selfie-seeking fan during an appearance Wednesday on the “Today” show.
Cameras followed the band as they made their way past screaming fans to the NBC morning show set. One fan jumped out from the crowd and put his arm around Mr. Tyler before the rocker quickly forced him off.
Mr. Tyler was visibly annoyed and appeared to mutter something under his breath as he continued to the “Today” set.
A clip of the incident circulated on Twitter, to which Mr. Tyler explained that it was live television and there simply wasn’t enough time to visit with fans.
No time, bro-this is LIVE TELEVISION! Come to the show if you want an intimate experience 🖐🏼👍🏼 #AerosmithToday https://t.co/t01QU5RwOu Steven Tyler (@IamStevenT) August 15, 2018
