Lady Gaga stands up for teen sent home for wearing a “Gaga” shirt

BY STAFF

Lady Gaga is sticking up for her fans to make sure that they don’t get discriminated against, even if it is at school. In her latest “Monster Ball” tour, Lady Gaga sold a variety of t-shirts, many which are very Gaga-esque as you can imagine. One of those shirts happened to be one that said “I ♥ Lady Gay Gay,” with the heart featuring the traditional gay rainbow stripes. Apparently, news has surfaced that this shirt is creating a raucous at Tennessee high school.

According to Popeater, a 15-year-old boy named Cole Goforth was sent home after wearing this shirt to school because the shirt was causing a “disruption.” Many news sites jumped on the band wagon and have turned this thing into a media evolution. Many sites are claiming that the school is in violation of Goforth’s freedom of speech.

Meanwhile, Lady Gaga heard of the news and went to posting on her twitter account the following statements:

“Been in the studio for days and hours of record after record, and when I hear that a little monster was discriminated against* BY TEACHERS”

“Thank u for wearing your tee-shirt proud at school, you make me so proud, at the monsterball, you are an inspiration to us all. I love you.X”

“It reminds me of my commitment + love for u, and the deep unconditional devotion I feel to write music that will liberate you from prejudice”

In return, Goforth tweeted “Individuality, self-expression, and truly being comfortable with yourself is something that runs so deep to me, I could cry talking about it.”

Goforth told the local WSMV-TV station the following statement: “I don’t think my sexuality is widely accepted around here, so of course they are going to single me out.”
