Adele Shuts Down Homophobic Heckler at Lad Vegas Concert Fsalinks


Adele paused her Las Vegas show on Saturday to respond to a homophobic heckler heckler in the crowd.

Per footage on social media also obtained by SkyNews, an audience member at Adele’s June 1 show could be heard yelling, “Pride sucks!” as the singer chatted with the audience between songs. The day marked the first day of Pride Month, an annual celebration for the LGBTQ community.

“What was that? Did you just say, ‘Pride sucks?’” Adele responded. “Did you come to my fucking show and just say that Pride sucks? Are you fucking stupid? Don’t be so fucking ridiculous.”

She added, “If you got nothing nice to say, shut up, all right?”

The singer’s comments were met with cheers from the rest of the audience.

Adele has long been a supporter of LGBTQ and women’s rights, and last December accepted the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award at The Hollywood Reporter‘s annual Women in Entertainment event.

Ahead of the award, the “Rolling In The Deep” singer told THR she does most of her charity work anonymously. “I also don’t ever want people who I’m trying to help question why I’m doing it,” she said. “I don’t want them to think that I’m doing it because it makes me look good, and my authenticity when it’s coming down to it. And I certainly wouldn’t want them ever feeling like I’m using them or anything like that. It’s a passion of mine that I do. But it is something I really want to start going into, my philanthropy phase. I definitely want to start it back home though, first.”

Adele’s Las Vegas residency, Weekends With Adele, will continue through November.
