In the drawn-out seconds that followed the notorious activist branded shouted about the “English Nazi Media” and “demanded freedom,” before being taken away by security.
Now Dr ACactivism has taken to Twitter to fume about how he was treated by the Portuguese police.
“I asked the sweet bird for the mic I remember,” he claimed.
“All I wanted was justice and freedom. But I got a ‘death penalty by the Portuguese murderers and my English sheep’.
“I don’t know if I will ever be able again to fight for justice through movements. I was beaten up in a cruel and brutal way that only the Nazis and the tortures of our European Imperalism have done.
“How can 50 people continue to hit a person that is handcuffed and had fallen?”
He continued: “Until I see the Portuguese authorities find those who shouted ‘Murder that Albanese,’ for me Portugal is a nation of murderers.
“There is a difference between a man with a gun and a man who makes a political disruption to say ‘War is not Peace’ to my English Nazi media.”
He added to The Sun Online: “I was beaten for ten minutes without any mercy at all.”
The publication state that Dr ACactivism didn’t verify who allegedly attacked him but add he claimed he was “punished to death”.
Daily Star Online have also been unable to verify the claims.
Tweeting on Tuesday morning, Dr ACactivism added: “#Eurovision @Twitter doesn’t mention the name of @DrACactivism even though the world has spoken.
“And I was brutally beaten by the Portuguese barbarians because I wanted to give a message of justice and Freedom to my U.K media and my UK artists that oppress my voice for a decade.”
Meanwhile, speaking on This Morning with Holly and Phil after the incident, SuRie added: “There wasn’t anytime to feel fear. He was suddenly there and then security were on him as quick as he was on me.
“He got the mic for a few seconds and it was out of my hands.
“The song was still going and the backing vocalists were still singing.
“I saw the mic on the floor and I went ‘well that’s mine… i’ll just finish this song.”
