Macaulay Culkin and The Pizza Underground: Booed Off Stage in England!

Macaulay Culkin probably wishes he spent this weekend home alone.

At least then he could have just worn his Ryan Gosling shirt in peace.

Instead, however, the actor and his band The Pizza Underground, performed as part of the Dot to Dot Festival in Nottingham, England. Much to the chagrin of those in attendance.

This Velvet Underground cover group scarcely got through a few tracks before the audience booed and actually threw beer bottles on stage.

Culkin tried to joke about the rude behavior at first ("Why are you throwing those?" hr asked. "I'd rather drink them."), but the unruliness would not stop.

"That's the end of the show," former child star  said with pints flying in his direction. "Goodnight."

The festival's organizers apologized for the incident, telling The Nottingham Post:

"After barnstorming sets at both Dot to Dot Manchester and Dot to Dot Bristol, it's such a shame that some members of the crowd had to ruin what was set to be an excellent show. Hopefully they'll get to play in Nottingham again soon."

And The Pizza Undergroud mostly took this ugly response in stride, writing on its Twitter account soon afterward:

"Thank you so much Nottingham and dot to dot. Sorry that a couple people ruined it for everyone."

Anna Paquin
Anna Paquin won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in The Piano. She went on to play Rogue and Sookie Stackhouse. Not too bad.
