Michelle Shocked Went on a Homophobic Tirade at a San Francisco Club
I saw Michelle Shocked in the late 90’s at Villa Montalvo in Saratoga California. My husband played the drums with her during that time. He used to tell me that B…. is crazy. Well, he was right. Michelle Shocked went on a homophobic tirade at Yoshi’s in San Francisco on March 17, 2013. She said "I live in fear that the world will be destroyed if gays are allowed to marry” and “God Hates Fags”. The audience was yelling for her to stop and started leaving. Yoshi’s pulled the plug on her. A spokesperson for Yoshi’s in San Francisco said that was the first time they had to pull the plug. Michelle Shocked gave ridiculous apology. She said “I do not, nor have I ever, said or believed that God hates homosexuals (or anyone else). I said that some of His followers believe that.” She said confusingly “When I said… ‘Michelle Shocked says God hates f**s,’ I was predicting the absurd way my description of, my apology for, the intolerant would no doubt be misinterpreted.” Michelle also went on to say, “But I am damn sorry,” she said. “If I could repeat the evening, I would make a clearer distinction between a set of beliefs I abhor, and my human sympathy for the folks who hold them.” Yea, she is crazy referring to herself in the third person. I did not meet her, but I met her husband and he seemed very strange. Michelle Shocked’s name fits her. She shocked the world and her career as well. We do not need anyone on stage spewing that kind of hate.
