Pop Stars Respond to White Supremacist Protests

Lady Gaga, John Legend, and Cher are a few of many celebrities and pop stars who have spoken out about the ongoing events that terrorized our fellow Americans in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend.

In case you’ve been a hermit to television and the internet, here’s the situation:

Last Friday, white nationalists (supremacists, “Nazis,” choose your own adventure) carried tiki torches as they paraded around the University of Virginia and incited violence. On Saturday, more hate spread as supremacists rallied together to protest the removal of a statue of Confederate General Robert E. Lee in Emancipation Park. Many of the protesters dawned swastikas and Adolf Hitler tees.

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency and told protesters to go home, adding “you are not wanted.” Later on, a 20-year-old member of the supremacist group drove a car into a crowd of anti-hate protesters, killing a 32-year-old woman in the process.

President Donald Trump took to Twitter to condemn displays of hate and bigotry from both sides. America didn’t respond well, and neither did its celebrities.

“I pray a true leader will rise to expel hatred from America… This is Anti-American,” Lady Gaga tweeted to her Monsters. Lights added her two cents, adding “You can’t pick an opinion in racism/homophobia/misogyny. You just can’t. You’re either part of the change or part of the problem.”
