A Shrewsbury art and design student who was booed off the stage on ITV's Britain's Got Talent has hit out at people who put his performance on video website YouTube.
David Williams, 21, of Pool Rise, Shrewsbury, said his moment to shine in front of judges Simon Cowell, Piers Morgan and Amanda Holden had not gone as planned. But his performance on Saturday is now on the website - accompanied by harsh comments.
People have claimed on the site that he is a danger to children and should not be allowed on television.
Mr Williams performed a dance but the judges pressed the buzzers and he ran off stage only to be dragged back by presenters Ant McPartlin and Declan Donnelly.
He said: "On the website, people are saying I'm a cry baby and I'm an embarrassment to Shrewsbury. There are about four or five different versions.
"The comments are written underneath the videos. My friend told me about it and I looked at it on Sunday night.
"These comments are making it painful for me. I have already had a lot of grief from people who saw me on television.
"I watched myself on Saturday. My nerves just kicked in. I did not think anything about it. I thought I would just try my best.
"Unfortunately, there's nothing I can do about the YouTube comments. I'm going to try to complain to the site. The comments are horrible.
"Maybe I should not have gone for it in the first place," he said.
Britain's Got Talent is a search for Britain's next best amateur talent act, featuring singers, dancers, comedians, variety acts, and other talents of all ages.
Mr Williams took part in the auditions at Birmingham's Hippodrome. He featured on the same programme as Shrewsbury-based strongman Stuart "Goldcrusher" Goldsmith, who also failed to impress.
