Sc_shocked

Michelle Shocked showed up to Moe's Alley in Santa Cruz, which canceled her show over her anti-gay rant. She wore a mask over her head, tape over her mouth, and taped several hastily scrawled signs to the wall before sitting down on the cement and strumming her guitar.

Silenced_shockedThe Santa Cruz Sentinel reports:

The tape across her mouth said "Silenced By Fear." When asked a question, Shocked shook her head vigorously and strummed her guitar while seated on the ground outside popular music venue Moe's Alley. She pointed to a sign inviting people to pick up a Sharpie marker and write on the white disposable safety suit she was wearing.

Earlier in the day, she had tweeted her plans: "Moe's in S Cruz tonight ok? Its an art project 'My Summer Vacation' I want your autograph. Bring Sharpie."

Moe's Alley owner Bill Welch, who talked with Shocked as she strummed her guitar outside his club, had replaced her with bands Beaver Fever and Frootie Flavors.

BTW, this is what she said about Prop 8:

"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...You can go on Twitter and say, 'Michelle Shocked says God hates fags.'"
