Lorde Asks Fans To Wear Rainbow Colors, Kiss As Westboro Pickets Her K.C. Concert

Fresh off eye-rolling her way through questions about being in a relationship with Taylor Swift, Lorde, the breakout artist of 2013, is instructing fans to disrupt Westboro Baptist Church's planned picketing of her upcoming Kansas City concert. 

The hate group announced the protest via a statement, writing, "New Zealand came forth with a young lassie that doesn't have enough sense to put in a thimble," the statement goes. "Now the world has elevated her to the status of an idol. Then the world began to weigh in."

 

 

The tweets seem to have since been deleted, but the message was salient enough for fans to respond in droves. 

Lorde will play Kansas City on March 21 at the Midland Theater.
