Continuing her strong history of support for the LGBT community, Lady Gaga made a bold post on her Facebook Monday (August 5) in support of gay rights in Russia.
“Sending bravery to LGBTs in Russia,” Gaga wrote. “The rise in government abuse is archaic. Hosing teenagers with pepper spray? Beatings? Mother Russia? The Russian government is criminal. Oppression will be met with revolution. Russian LGBTs you are not alone. We will fight for your freedom.”
Gaga took the fight one step further in her post, which concluded with a challenge to the nation. “Why didn’t you arrest me when you had the chance, Russia? Because you didn’t want answer to the world?” she asked.
