Queen guitarist Brian May has lashed out at Channel 7 cameraman just moments after landing in Brisbane Airport on a private jet.

The legendary guitarist and his entourage were posing for photographs with fans when he allegedly pushed the cameraman, calling him a “parasite” after politely asking him to stop filming.

“You’ve got to stop that,” May shouted at the cameraman after he refused to stop filming.

“Oh, you’re clever aren’t you?” May said, as reported by 7News.

“What a parasite you are!”

He added, “Excuse me, we said no. Is this going to get ugly? You put this down or else something ugly happens, do you understand?”

May apologised to his fans for the outburst before leaving.


Queen will be performing in Brisbane on Thursday before a bushfire relief concert in Sydney on Sunday, and more shows in Melbourne and Perth.
