Lady Gaga had a message for Vice President Mike Pence at her Las Vegas concert over the weekend, calling him the “worst representation” of Christianity.

“And to Mike Pence who thinks that it’s acceptable that his wife works at a school that bans LGBTQ. You are wrong,” the singer said at Las Vegas’ Park MGM to a crowd of cheering fans.

Her criticism was in reference to Mr. Pence’s wife, Karen, who recently accepted a job at a Christian school in northern Virginia that does not enroll LGBTQ students. Mr. Pence has defended his wife’s employment, calling the media’s attacks on Christian education “deeply offensive.”

Lady Gaga on Saturday called Mr. Pence’s comments a disgrace.

“You said we should not discriminate against Christianity? You are the worst representation of what it means to be a Christian,” she said. “I am a Christian woman, and what I do know about Christianity is that we bear no prejudice and everybody is welcome. So you can take all that disgrace, Mr. Pence, and look yourself in the mirror and you’ll find it right there.”



The pop star also called on President Trump to end the partial government shutdown.

“If the f–ing President of the United States can please put our government back in business,” she said. “There are people who live paycheck to paycheck and need their money.”
