Kesha’s dancers probably gave the best response to Westboro Baptist Church protesters outside the singer’s concert in Lincoln, Nebraska.
The Kansas-based Westboro Baptist Church is known for picketing funerals of soldiers and hate crime victims and anti-gay views. When the group intended to protest at the funeral of the Sandy Hook Elementary victims in December last year, they were stopped and a petition, calling on the government of the United States to officially recognize Westboro Baptist Church as a hate group was signed which became the most popular of all on the White House website, We The People.
The WBC protesters prepared a parody song for Kesha’s single "We R Who We R” entitled, “God Hates Who U R” and played it outside the star’s concert, chanting slogans. Three backup dancers then started an amazing performance on the ‘hate’ song which eventually silenced the ‘hate group’ activists.
People, offline and online, are praising the three performers and Kesha for their incredibly peaceful yet powerful response to Wesboro hate.
This is what WBC tweeted after the incident:
Clearly, they are offended. And no one cares. Obviously.
