  1. Two words for Michelle: don’t bother.

    No way! You may be setting up the gay community to receive more abuse. It will take a lot of time for her to prove herself. This is too soon.

      While I doubt she’ll be able to redeem herself, it’s never “too soon” to apologize.

  3. Honey, we don’t forgive people when they channel WBC for whatever reason.
    It’s done, go find someone else to bother with your mess.

    Who is this woman? Why on earth would I want to receive this gobbet of “news” via Facebook?

  5. The damage has already been done by her hateful comments. She should not be given another platform to spout her bile.

    I do hope though the if the LGBT community do turn out for this then they really give her hell.

  6. I think she already clarified her position. Backtracking doesn’t change it.

  7. Is this april fools day ? the joke being gay people who would give this stupid homophobic hag the time of day. You couldn’t make it up, a supposedly diverse city giving this hater a platform and all the garbage associated with it.

  8. You opened your mouth and was very clear and then you followed that up with a rubbish explanation. Your bridge is burned. go away.

  9. Here is one of her tweets:
    @RollingIkeTina Can I tweet the word f-g? Ask others to tweet the word f-g? Can I ask a faggot to tweet the word f-g? Goundrules, please!

  10. Is she going to take along her shovel too so she can dig herself deeper into the hole she dug herself into previously?

    Who the hell is Michelle Shocked?
    I never heard of her before all this hoopla.

  12. I doubt whether she has any idea what her position is, let alone clarify it. Will this car crash ever end?

    What’s wrong Michelle?
    Bank account getting a little smaller?
    Money does funny things to born agains.
    Girlfriend, your 15 minutes are up.

    1. Gene in L.A. 19 Jun 2013, 7:13pm

      How is a free show going to cure a shrinking bank account?

  14. I think the photo alone says it all…there is something seriously wrong with this woman.

  15. Born agains; possibly the worst.
    She is where she is by using lesbians and then she turns against the whole community.
    Put it this way, she never was as good as K.D. Lang. She’s nothing! So put that in your bible bashing / Lordy, Lordy the rapture’s a comin’/ grass eatin’ cotton pickin’ pipe and smoke it.

    Come on. We are generous of heart, surely – if there is something I know about people who are gay they are willing to be generous to others. Let’s give her a chance to redeem herself.

    Isn’t that fair?

    1. She is a poor communicator, that really does not help in her chosen field.

    What Ms. Shocked doesn’t realize is that every time she shakes hands with one of her new fundamentalist friends, they go to the restroom and wash their hands with Purell because they don’t want to catch her “ex” gay cooties.

    How’s it feel being a barely-tolerated pariah in TWO communities, Princess?

  18. Another born again nut job.

  19. Which part of “God hates fags” did Michelle mean metaphorically?! It’s an unambiguous and concise declaration of hatred; no clarification is needed, and I would be insulted to see her given a podium simply for the sake of controlling the damage she’s caused to her own name.

  20. “and to have the chance to really explain what she meant.”

    ie – She can no longer work anywhere, so she need to spin her comments so that they mean the opposite of what she said/meant.

  21. Who cares ?!

  22. I believe the concert has been cancelled .
