US President Barack Obama, on a major fund-raising trip to Los Angles, was interrupted by a heckler who declared him as the ''anti-Christ''.

The incident happened at the House of Blues in Hollywood on Monday as Obama was giving a speech.

The unidentified heckler had positioned himself at the front of the stage, directly in front of the president and began shouting just as Obama began speaking, the Daily Telegraph reported.

''The Christian God is the one and only true living God, the creator of heaven and the universe! Jesus Christ is God!,'' said the unidentified man before declaiming the president as the anti-Christ.

Security soon stepped in to drag the man from the theatre as the crowd shouted ''four more years'' to drown him out.

Obama joked about the incident with the audience after the man was evicted by security men, the BBC reported.
