When A Fan Tweeted A Homophobic Message, Kelly Clarkson Didn't Let It Go

"I almost didn’t respond 2 this ..."

Kelly Clarkson, back in December 2016, helped a fan get engaged. Earlier this week, when that same fan married her now-wife, Clarkson once again showed up by wishing them well. That wasn't the end of the story, though, as the original American Idol winner replied to a homophobic fan — and she did so with absolute grace.


The person starts out by saying that though they love Clarkson's music, they don't love the fact that she offered her kind words to the women, and they claim that same-sex marriage is "still a sin any way you cut it."

"I almost didn't respond 2 this because hate doesn't deserve a spotlight but u know what, truth does, & the truth is that God is Love, & Love shared between two people should be praised not condemned in my personal opinion," Clarkson wrote.

This type of retort shouldn't come as a surprise to Clarkson's followers, as she has been an advocate for the LGBTQ community time and time again. Not only that, but the "Love So Soft" singer has spoken out about gun violence, female singers being pitted against each other, and body positivity.

What came after that initial line, though, is what turns Clarkson's take from being just a celebrity clapping back at a fan and a lesson that we should all take to heart: we don't have to agree but we do have to respect one another.

"I love u 2 although we see the world/love differently," Clarkson finished.

The newly married fan saw the interaction and said she was going to react but that her message wouldn't have been "as nice" as Clarkson's. She also thanked Clarkson for standing up for her, her wife, and others like them — in addition for the superstar standing up for what she believes in.
