Westboro Baptist Church Protested Transgender Pop Star Kim Petras’ Concert and Her Response Was Iconic
Kim Petras had the most iconic response after the anti-LGBTQ Westboro Baptist Church announced they were going to be protesting at her tour stop in Kansas City, Missouri, this weekend.
At first, the transgender pop star acknowledged their plan by sharing her "official statement" on social media. "This is my official statement on the WBC picketing my show in Kansas City tomorrow. This is the energy I'm bringing n it should be yours too," she captioned a video of herself that featured the phrase "Hoes mad."
She then took things one step further by showing up to the location and posing for photos across the road from where the bigoted hate group stood with their signs. Wearing a black leather bodysuit and thigh-high boots, Petras basically had an impromptu photoshoot to show the WBC just how completely unfazed she is by all the hate.
"Hoes still mad," the "Icy" hitmaker captioned a photo of her making a peace sign in front of the protesters.
Celebrities like Demi Lovato, Katy Perry, Charli XCX, Grimes, James Charles and more all showed their support in the comments section of Petras' photo, as well as applauded her for her epic trolling abilities.
"YAAASSSS," Lovato commented while Charli called the singer's poses "ICONIQUEEEEE."
"This is literally genius," Grimes added.
