Singer Flips Off TV Cameras During World Cup Opening Ceremony

Robbie Williams flips off the camera.

The 2018 World Cup is underway in Russia. Before the action kicked off, there were of course the opening ceremonies.

British singer Robbie Williams was one of the performers during the opening festivities. If you're unfamiliar with him, he has had a bunch of No. 1 hits in the UK, including "Radio," "Rock DJ" and "Millennium."

Williams' performance was nondescript until the camera cut to him at one point and he decided to flip the middle finger.

Check it out:

This was...weird to say the least.

We're not sure why Williams decided to do that, but he was certainly clear about it.

Russia and Saudi Arabia are playing in the first game of the 2018 World Cup on FOX.
