Amidst Tour Cancellation Michelle Shocked Tweets She's Not Against Gay Marriage
Michelle Shocked’s remaining shows were cancelled after her infamous anti-gay tirade during a weekend performance in San Francisco, according to Billboard.
Shocked had 11 concerts remaining on her tour, and all but one venue has pulled out, including Colorado’s Telluride Bluegrass Festival.
Shocked made the news earlier this week when she started the second half of her set with comments like, “When they stop Prop 8 and force priests at gunpoint to marry gays, it will be the downfall of civilization, and Jesus will come back” and “God Hates Fags.”
Since the performance, Shocked has been the target of thousands of Twitter attacks and comment boards have lit up all across the country by fans who are disappointed by the artists hate-filled comments.
Shocked took to her Twitter account to respond to the backlash with one tweet saying, “Most don’t even know what my views on Gays are. What is reported to be my views on Gays isn’t.” And in response to some sympathetic fans, she responded with, “Am neither against a woman’s right to choose nor gay marriage. Am a fundamentalist tho.”
