Alt-Folk Singer Michelle Shocked Tells SF Audience 'God Hates Fags', Inspires Mass Walk-Out
Alt-folk singer Michelle Shocked is making headlines after reports she went on an anti-gay tirade during the second half of her show at San Francisco club Yoshi, Meow Online reports:
Michelle Shocked, known for living up to her surname, cleared out San Francisco club Yoshi’s last night, and shut down the venue, after she went on an anti-gay tirade, which she summed up by saying, ”You can go on Twitter and say ‘Michelle Shocked says God hates fags.’”
Matt Penfield, onstage live-tweeting the performance for Shocked was, well, shocked.
“Eerie foreshadowing at Michelle Shocked show,” Penfield said. “before the show she talked about how ‘people seem like your friends then they turn on you.’”
Her first set was “all cool. 2nd set, she got up went full hate speech,” he tweeted.
Shocked's Facebook page describes her as "your average anarchist skateboard punk rock born again Christian."
Last night she tweeted: "Truth is leading to painful confrontation #shortsharpshocked".
Video of the incident has yet to appear online.
