Smith, who is currently on tour with the American band, was at a drum clinic in the Hard Rock Café in Belo Horizonte, where the local football team are Flamengo's great rivals Cruzeiro.

During the event, a member of the crowd threw the black and red Flamengo shirt onto the stage to mixed reaction of boos and cheers.

Smith then stuffed the jersey down the back of his jeans before throwing it away like it was rubbish.

Most of the crowd roared in enthusiastic tribalism, but a couple of missiles was instantly thrown at the drummer from the crowd.

After the footage was posted online, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter erupted with death threats and abusive messages.

To make matters worse, Smith's band are booked to play Rio de Janeiro, home of Flamengo, on Saturday night.

Realising his mistake, Smith took to Twitter to apologise for his antics.

In addition to the apology, he also donned a Flamengo shirt and posted a picture of himself signing autographs for fans.

In a damage limitation exercise, Smith then visited the club to apologise to the players personally and presented them with Chili Peppers T-shirts.
