An opportunistic Labor supporter has targeted Scott Morrison at a private media event, angering the prime minister as he attempted to film their exchange on the sly.

The young man was ejected from the event in Penrith on Tuesday night after yelling at Mr Morrison, telling him he was "a disgrace".

Video of the incident was later uploaded to TikTok by the man involved, 20-year-old Adisen Wright, who describes himself online as a "political activist".

In the video, he begins by asking Mr Morrison for a photo, who questions if he's in the press pack.

Mr Wright tells him he "lives up in the mountains" and was invited by a friend who worked behind the bar.

He then says he has one question for him, addressing him as ScoMo.

But with the camera still rolling, Mr Morrison interrupts, saying: "What's going on there? No, why is it recording?"

A woman attempts to intervene before Mr Morrison exits the conversation and walks away, before Mr Wright unleashes his verbal spray.

"ScoMo, across the river here, across the Nepean River, people lost their houses and they were burned! You're a disgrace.. you are a disgrace!" he shouts, before being swiftly ushered away.

He is taken outside by a man who tells him he is a police officer, but pleads his innocence, saying he has done nothing wrong.

He claimed on TikTok he was being detained following the incident, writing: "Help me."

NSW Police told Yahoo News Australia the man was issued a move-on direction and "left the venue without incident".

Mr Wright's social media accounts show he is an active Labor supporter, while his TikTok shows multiple videos mocking Mr Morrison.

Mr Wright states he is fighting for climate action.

Close to 15 per cent of the Blue Mountains area, more than one million hectares, was burnt in the 2019-20 bushfires, according to the Department of Agriculture, Water and Environment.

It is the latest incident where Mr Morrison has been approached by angry voters.

Last week a pensioner at a Newcastle pub told Mr Morrison he was "sick of your bull****" in a tense exchange while a woman filmed the pair in a selfie video telling him he was the worst prime minister Australia has ever had.
