Michelle Shocked San Francisco Audience With Homophobic Rant

Alternative folkster Michelle Shocked left her audience at San Francisco’s Yoshi bar stunned when she embarked on a tirade against homosexuals and gay marriage on Sunday night.

Born-again Christian Shocked announced, “You can go on Twitter and say ‘Michelle Shocked says God hates fags.”

Describing herself as ‘Your average anarchist skateboard punk rock born again Christian’ on her Facebook page, Shocked committed career suicide when she went into her hateful rant, spouting “gay marriage would cause the end of the world,” and, “When they stop Prop 8 and force priests at gunpoint to marry gays, it will be the downfall of civilization and Jesus will come back.”

Most of the crowd walked out before the venue announced, “Thank you for coming ladies and gentlemen. This show is over,” and pulled the plug. Shocked argued that the show wasn’t over as management switched off her microphone and turned off the lights.

At time of press, most of Shocked’s U.S. dates have been pulled by the venues. Seattle’s Meander’s Kitchen cancelled the April 26 show after the singer’s homophobic remarks, and Yoshi’s tweeted, “WE AT YOSHI’S SF DO NOT & WILL NOT EVER TOLERATE THE TYPE OF BIGOTRY & HATRED EXHIBITED LAST NIGHT BY @MShocked SHE WILL NEVER BE BACK.”

No word as yet if her European dates will suffer the same fate.

Angry fans have taken to her Facebook page to register their disgust over her bigotry.
