The Westboro church that protested at a recent Adam Lambert concert also did so at a Lady GaGa concert. While Lambert responded by saying that “God does not hate,” GaGa warned her fans not to interact with the group of people demonstrating at her show.
GaGa took to Twitter to say to her fans:
“At the risk of drawing attention to a hateful organization, I would like to make my little monster fan aware of a protest being held outside the Monsterball in St.Louis tonight. Although we have had protesters before, as well as fundamentalists at the show this group of protesters are hate criminals and preach using lude and violent language and imagery that I wish I protect you all from.
Their message is of hatred and divisiveness, but inside at the Monsterball we preach love and unity.
My request to all little monsters and public authority is to pay these hate criminals no mind. Do not interact with them, or try to fight. Do not respond to any of their provocation. Don’t waste your words, or feelings, no matter what you hear or see.
You are more fortunate and blessed than they are, and in your heart just pray for them. Although I respect and do not judge anyone for their personal views on any politics or religion, this group in particular to me, is violent and dangerous. I wanted to make my fans aware of my views on how to approach, or rather not approach, these kinds of hate activists.
Be inspired to ignore their ignorant message, and feel gratitude in your heart that you are not burdened or addicted to hate, as they are. X”
Lady GaGa and Adam Lambert have much in common. Not only are they both performers who put everything into their performances and craft, but they also have a shared message of love and tolerance that they impart to their fans and that is evident in their music. Lambert who has been very honest as to his personal life from the beginning, has said repeatedly in interviews, that it is OK to be different, and this is something that his fans have connected to. Lambert encourages his fans to embrace their uniqueness. GaGa was recently awarded a GLAAD award as outstanding artist of the year. While everyone does have the right to their opinion — do you think that it is necessary for any group to actually go to a concert and protest?
