Jack White laid into the celebrity-filled audience at The Dead Weather's gig at Don Hill's in New York on Wednesday (August 4), labelling them "hip motherfuckers".

The band were playing a secret show at the relaunch party of Don Hill's to an audience who included the likes of Sean Lennon, Liv Tyler, Alexa Chung and Mary-Kate Olsen.

According to New York Daily News, White is said to have taken offence at the less-than-enthusiastic crowd.

"Fuck you, you hip motherfuckers!" he told the audience at one point. "Why don't you rock the fuck out? Maybe I should go grab those free drinks and shove them down your throats, you hip motherfuckers!"

White is also said to have stopped the gig midway through to have an audience member in the front row thrown out because he was taking photos of the band.

However, towards the end of the bands set White did make an apology to the crowd.

"I'm sorry I blew up at you guys earlier," he said, adding: "Thanks for coming out."
