2. According to fans who attended her gig at Yoshi’s, she launched into a tirade against gays – ending with her telling people ”You can go on Twitter and say ‘Michelle Shocked says God hates fags’” - in her second set.


That was fuck-ing cra-zy! I was tweeting Michelle Shocked’s set onstage (for her). All cool. 2nd set, she got up went full hate speech.— Matt Penfield


Eerie foreshadowing at Michelle Shocked show—before the show she talked about how “people seem like your friends then they turn on you”— Matt Penfield


@TheGuapo Was her rant sincere? Was there no hint of irony whatsoever?— James Hinckley


@JamesHinckley2 Totally sincere. Super anti-gay and hateful.— Matt Penfield

8. Since the news broke, fans have retaliated by vandalizing the singer’s Wikipedia page.

9. This behavior shouldn’t come as a huge surprise. Shocked has said some very bigoted things about gays in the past.

In this interview from 2008, she addresses her past as a lesbian, and how she reconciles that with her beliefs as a born again Christian.

10. Here’s a choice bit from another interview from 2008.
