British singer Ed Sheeran, who has been supporting Taylor Swift on her US tour, responded to the Westboro Baptist Church who picketed one of the venues, to tell it to “keep your homophobic views to yourself”.
Sheeran, 22, who was supporting Taylor, 23, tweeted following members of the church showing up at a Kansas City venue with placards.
He said: “Keep your homophobic views to yourself, it’s 2013.”
Prior to the concert, the church released a statement calling Swift “the whorish face of doomed America”.
The church previously tweeted PinkNews to say that God sent the killers in the suspected terror killing in Woolwich, London, because the equal marriage bill passed its third reading in the House of Commons.
