Barbra Streisand pelted with ice during concert

Barbra Streisand was shocked when a concertgoer disagreed with her political views and pelted her with ice while she was performing in south Florida on Monday night.

The music legend was on stage at the BankAtlantic Center in Fort Lauderdale and brought out a President George W. Bush impersonator during one part of her show.

The impersonator jokingly asked her if they could sing a song together, to which Streisand replied, "How about 'Enough Is Enough'?", referring to her 1970s disco duet with Donna Summer.

At that point a disgruntled fan threw ice at the 64-year-old star, according to TMZ.com.

Streisand managed to stay calm and reassured the audience, "It's OK, it's OK."

When fans asked the staunch Democrat to sing a song for the Republicans, she suggested "Send in the Clowns," which reportedly upset another fan, who started to loudly boo the singer.

Both the heckler and the ice thrower were escorted out of the venue, which caused Streisand to quip, "If you want to hear my songs, buy my albums and stay at home," which caused the remaining fans to applaud enthusiastically.
