Westboro Protesters Receive Condolences Outside Lorde Concert
When the Westboro Baptist Church attempted to picket a concert by pop star Lorde in Kansas City on Friday Night (21st March), they were met with an unexpected positive counter-protest.

As Billboard notes, Lorde fans were seen holding up signs for the church that read "sorry for your loss" in response to the death of Westboro Baptist Church founder Fred Phelps.

Westboro had previously stated that they objected to Lorde, who they claim "spends her time, energy and talent serving herself and teaching other young people how to be indolent rebels."

The singer had originally responded to the Church's comments by tweeting "hahaha omg just found out westboro baptist church are going to picket my show in kansas city … everyone wear rainbow clothing to that show … everyone try to kiss church members who are same sex as you they will so love it christmas comin early in kansas city." She then deleted the tweets.
