Michelle Shocked clears out San Francisco venue with anti-gay tirade [View all]

Michelle Shocked may sound vaguely familiar to any of you growing up in the late 80s. She's fallen off the map pretty much since then. This incident should nail the coffin shut.

Last night, Michelle Shocked, who had several hits in the 80s and 90s as an alternative folk musician, delivered a bigoted message against LGBT people at the popular club Yoshi's in San Francisco. According to live tweets from the event, she went on quite the hate rant and invited the audience to share her thoughts on Twitter.

”You can go on Twitter and say ‘Michelle Shocked says God hates fags.’”

(snip)

According to reports the audience was clearly angry and left en masse. At first some thought it had to be some sort of bad joke, but as she went on, it became clear that she was being completely sincere in expressing her hate for teh gay.

The irony is, I'm sure I wasn't the only one who assumed she was a lesbian.
