‘Shut up, alright?’: Adele confronts homophobic heckler

Footage of Adele confronting a homophobic heckler has been shared widely on social media.

During the Saturday night show of her Weekends With Adele residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, the award-winning artist took aim at an audience member who yelled: “Pride sucks.”

The Hello singer replied: “Did you come to my f***ing show and say that Pride sucks?

“Are you fucking stupid? Don’t be so f***ing ridiculous.”

The Tottenham-born star added: “If you’ve got nothing nice to say, shut up, alright?”

June is Pride month – dedicated to celebrating LGBTQ communities around the world.

The Grammy winner has shown her support for Pride and LGBTQ people on many occasions.

After the massacre that killed 49 people at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in 2016, she dedicated a show in Belgium to people in the city and at the club on the night of the attack, adding: “The LGBTQ community, they’re like my soul mates since I was really young, so I’m very moved by it.”

She has also said her song Set Fire To The Rain was supposed to be a “gay anthem”.

Earlier this year Adele announced she would play in Europe for the first time since 2016.

She has four nights booked in Germany for August at Munich’s Messe exhibition centre, which boasts a capacity of 80,000 – a booking she called “a bit random”.

She last played in the UK in July 2022 at the British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park.
