Ariana Grande is not here for the homophobic protest that happened during her concert. But, she is definitely here for her LGBTQ fans.
A video surfaced on Twitter showing two men standing outside Grande’s Atlanta concert venue. One of the two men is seen holding an anti-pride banner while spewing hate speech through a microphone.
Throughout the video, the man argues with multiple women who are trying to get him to leave. The man cites the Bible in his arguments taking it as far as telling one of the women “Satan is your god.”
The video was posted by a fan of Grande’s who wrote in the caption:
“f**k these dudes outside the Ariana Grande concert spreading homophobia and being f*****g stupid and it took EVERYTHING in me not to kick him in the balls with me heels on”
