US folk singer Michelle Shocked cancels tour after telling audience she ‘hates fags’


Folk singer Michelle Shocked lived up to her surname, as at a gig in San Francisco, she went on an anti-gay rant forcing concert-goers to leave.

During an intimate gig at Yoshi’s in San Francisco, the born-again Christian told the audience she “hates fags” and that same-sex marriage would bring about the “end of the world.”

She later had her tour cancelled, kind-of apologised, and even turned up to one of the venues which cancelled her performance to stage a sit-in. Oops.

In this video, pranksters from the Chick-Fil-A Foundation exchanged a fake coupon for a meal on the condition that they renounced their homosexuality.
