Adele claps back at concert attendee who appeared to make an anti- Pride Month comment

Adele addressed an audience member who appeared to yell an anti-Pride comment at her Saturday show, calling them “ridiculous.”

But by Monday, fans on social media, some who claimed to be at the show, said the artist may have misheard the attendee’s remark.

Videos of the 16-time Grammy-winning singer at her Las Vegas residency circulated across social media on Sunday. Some initially praised her for her responding to someone who seemingly said “Pride sucks!” Others pointed out she was quick to respond without fully hearing what the attendee had said.

“Did you come to my f—ing show and just say that Pride sucks? Are you f—ing stupid? Don’t be so f—ing ridiculous,” the singer is heard saying in the videos. “If you got nothing nice to say, shut up, all right?”

A spokesperson for Adele did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Saturday was the first day of Pride Month, which is dedicated to celebrating the LGBTQ community. It’s often associated with parades and parties, as well as political rallies and marches to protest ongoing issues of inequity.

The iconic pop-soul singer has had no qualms about addressing audience behavior in the past. In July of last year, Adele dared fans to “throw something” at her while addressing a troubling trend in which fans toss objects at artists while they perform — often hitting and injuring them.

“Have you noticed how people are, like, forgetting f—ing show etiquette in America? They’re just throwing s— onstage. Have you seen that?” she asked the audience while pacing the stage.

Adele has been vocal about protecting audience members at her shows as well. In August, she halted a performance to scold venue security for “bothering” a fan.

“Weekends With Adele,” held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, is the 36-year-old English singer’s first concert residency. It began in November 2022 and is slated to conclude in November of this year.

Earlier this year, Adele postponed a string of dates in the residency on medical advice because of a recurring health problem, after having also delayed the start of the residency in 2022 because of hurdles related to Covid-19.
