Lady Gaga responds to Westboro Baptist Church, remains classy while doing so

The Westboro Baptist Church (infamous for their "God Hates Fags" protests and picketing the funerals of US soldiers) announced that it would picket Lady Gaga's concert in St. Louis tonight. Here's an exceprt from the message they posted on their website:

Now what type of wicked hypocrites would we be if we did not warn this little false prophetess and all of her over-indulged sycophants that they are each one, individually heading straight to hell in a gender-confused, self-loathing, tone-deaf hand basket and that a gift from the God they hate?"

Always one to take the highroad, Gaga responded with the following on her Twitter account:

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

I completely agree, though I'm really getting sick of the whole 'little monsters/Mama Monster' thing.

People should counter-protest like the guy in this video:

He decided to counter-protest by raising money for LGBT charities and donating it in the WBC's name.

the klan came and marched in my town years and years ago, and people organized a fundraiser that worked like a race, so like people would donate 5 dollars for every 10 minutes the march went on etc all the money was donated to starting a black history section in the local library

Don't. I would hate for ONTD to be associated with these fools, even if it is for the lols or whatever.

m_h_p 18th-Jul-2010 01:12 pm (UTC)
I suggest a WBC-esque 'ONTD LOVES FAGS' sign.
nichtsmuss 17th-Jul-2010 11:28 pm (UTC)

I totally agree with what she's said; I think it's a fine way to respond to their protesting.
ohkimosabe 17th-Jul-2010 11:28 pm (UTC)
I don't like her, but I wouldn't wish that upon anyone (the hateful protesters) she responded really well.
xballet 17th-Jul-2010 11:29 pm (UTC)
well said

everyone just needs to stop giving them attention
