Adele Shuts Down Homophobic Fan During Las Vegas Show

Adele proved she’s not just a powerhouse vocalist but also a fierce defender of love and equality. During her Weekends With Adele concert on June 1, kicking off Pride Month, a rude audience member decided to shout, “Pride sucks.” Big mistake.

A Fiery Response

In a fan-captured video, Adele stopped mid-performance at Caesars Palace’s Colosseum to address the heckler. With the poise of a queen, she snapped back, “Did you come to my f—ing show to say ‘Pride sucks?’ Are you f—ing stupid? Don’t be so f—ing ridiculous.” Her words hit harder than her high notes.

Adele didn’t just stop at that. She threw in, “If you’ve got nothing nice to say, shut up, alright?” The crowd erupted in cheers, showing just how much they appreciated her standing up for what’s right.

A Longtime LGBTQ+ Ally

Adele has always waved the rainbow flag high. Last year, she wowed her audience in Las Vegas by wearing a rainbow flag dress for Pride Month. She declared, “I’ll be celebrating it all month long. Happy Pride!” In 2022, she added extra flair to her London Hyde Park show by waving a Pride flag, much to the delight of her fans.

Her support goes back even further. In June 2016, Adele dedicated a heartfelt performance at Belgium’s Sportpaleis to the victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando, Fla. The horrific attack on the LGBTQ+ club left 49 dead and 53 injured. Adele told her fans, “The LGBTQA community, they’re like my soulmates since I was really young, so I’m really moved by it.”

More Shows to Come

The show must go on, and Adele’s Las Vegas residency is set to continue through June 15. After a summer break with concerts in Munich, she’ll be back in Vegas for five more weekends starting in late October.

Adele’s no-nonsense takedown of hate at her show is just another reason to adore her. Here’s to a fabulous Pride Month!
