Michelle Shocked: God Hates Fags

Folk singer Michelle Shocked effectively ended her career last night when she told a San Francisco concert audience, "You can go on Twitter and tell people that Michelle Shocked says 'God hates fags'."  According to reports, much of the audience immediately left the venue in anger.  The music press has often identified Shocked as lesbian herself, mistakenly it now appears, unless she's gone "ex-gay." Last night her Wikipedia page was changed to read "Michelle Shocked (born Karen Michelle Johnston, February 24, 1962) is a BIGOTED lesbian singer/songwriter." That notation has since been removed. Shocked followed up on Twitter after the show.
