Watch: Adele Shuts Down Anti-Pride Heckler: 'If You Have Nothing Nice To Say, Shut Up'


When an anti-gay heckler expressed their disdain for Pride at the stage at Adele's Las Vegas residency, the queer ally didn't let it pass. "Pride Sucks," said the audience member, shouted. "The 36-year-old singer – who a huge LGBTQ+ following – was performing one of her 'Weekends with Adele' Las Vegas residency shows at Colosseum at Caesars Palace when she shut down the homophobic heckler," reports the show business site BangPremier.

Adele fumed back: "Are you f****** stupid? Don't be so f****** ridiculous. If you have nothing nice to say, shut up, all right?"

The clueless heckler likely didn't realize that Adele has long been a LGBTQ+ ally who has shown her support during dark times and crises. "In 2016, after the horrific massacre of LGBT+ people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, she said onstage: "I would like to start tonight by dedicating this entire show to everybody in Orlando and at Pulse nightclub last night... The LGBTQ community, they're like my soul mates since I was really young, so I'm very moved by it."

And the Grammy winner previously declared her song "I Set Fire To The Rain" is a "gay anthem".

She also became a minister in order to marry her comedian pal Alan Carr and his husband, and she also loves to party at all the popular gay bars.

"The 'Hello' hitmaker has also received many thank you messages and letters from fans who felt able to come out because of her," adds BangPremier.

She told Out magazine: "I get a lot of mail from people who tell me that I make them really happy to be themselves, and really comfortable with who they are, which I love."
