Lady Gaga to Russia: ‘Why Didn’t You Arrest Me When You Had the Chance?’


Earlier today Towleroad reported that Lady Gaga and Madonna had been put under investigation by Russian authorities for not obtaining appropriate visas for their recent visits in what is being seen as a veiled warning to artists that pro-gay activism in the country will be punished.

Lady Gaga is now firing back on Twitter:

"Sending bravery to LGBTs in Russia. The rise in government abuse is archaic. Hosing teenagers with pepper spray? Beatings? Mother Russia?… The Russian government is criminal. Oppression will be met with revolution. Russian LGBTs you are not alone. We will fight for your freedom… Why didn't you arrest me when you had the chance, Russia? Because you didn't want answer to the world?"

    GO LADY GAGA! She and Madonna should join forces on this. She is bringing this to light – and YES, if she were arrested then Russia WOULD answer to the world. Too many people don’t even know this is happening – an arrest of a major world-recognized star would put this abuse front and center

    Whether you like her or not you f*cktards who just come here to bash her forget she has a huge following. Have you been to a Gaga concert? It’s the closest thing to a 60’s “love-in” this generation is ever gonna get.

    I think if Gaga, or Madonna, or any Olympic athlete were arrested for gay propaganda (not sex in the streets but actual speech), the condemnation from much of the Western World would be swift and crushing.

    “gaga, pack your bags, head to russia, and let them arrest you. that’s making a statement. a tweet from your mansion in LA falls short.”

    DLAME, your comment falls shorter. You couldn’t even muster a tweet.

    What a lovely gathering of trolls this item has attracted. There’s Jealous Troll, Spiteful Troll, Bitchy Troll, Facetious Troll, Fashion Troll and Homophobic Troll. Lulz anyone?
