Tim McGraw Says He Feels Bad About Swatting at Fan During Concert

ABC/Eric Gebhart(LOS ANGELES) -- Tim McGraw doesn't feel good about swatting a fan at his show last week, but the country megastar said it's time to move on.

"I reacted in an instinctive, defensive way from my perspective of what was going on," he told ET Canada Sunday. "I think it was an unfortunate situation, I think, all the way around. But it happened. It happened in a split second. It was pure instinctive reaction. I think you just got to move on."

A video posted to TMZ early last week shows the singer walking into the crowd to sing to his fans. When one grabbed at his pants, he waved his hand to get the fan off.

His rep told ABC News after the incident that McGraw "instinctively swatted" the fan away so that his jeans wouldn't rip.

McGraw, 47, told ET Canada, "It is one of those things that happen, nobody feels good about it, but there’s nothing that could be done about it. You are in that position, you are out there, you are vulnerable, things happen and sometimes you react. There’s nothing to be said about it."

McGraw is in the middle of an international tour, which runs until November.
