Watch This Cyclist Tell Off A Homophobic Preacher In A Busy Street

We have another video to share with you all.

In these times of people taking the street to spread their hate through open protesting, we’re glad to see when people take a stand and say enough is enough.

And that is just what this video, posted by PinkNews, is all about.

This video takes place in Glasgow, Scotland and in it we can see a preacher yelling out on a busy street. This is not someone unusual. In fact, you can probably find it on any regularly busy street in any city.

That said, hearing these people recite homophobic messages is not as usual (though still pretty common on the grand scheme of things).

That’s right, the preacher was specifically talking about LGBTQ people and saying that gay people needed to repent and were the minority of the world.

That’s when a random cyclist who was riding by decided to stop and confront the man. Things got interesting from there…

 

Sadly, while hateful speech like this is no longer the word of the majority, loud outliers like the preacher still exist.

That said, Scotland is a country where gay marriage, adoption, and protections in law exist. Hopefully, the mentality of LGBTQ people being the same as heterosexual and cisgender people will grow while the hate speech does the opposite.

P!nk's 'What About Us' Sings To Our Hearts About Equality

With the onslaught of freedom and liberties that we have been seeing in the last several months, there’s no surprise that artists and the entertainment industry has come to the forefront as a voice for everyone seeking to be heard. We’ve seen this in film, television, theater, but most importantly music. Music, which is a salvation for so many during difficult times has always proven to be the answer in the waiting and anticipation of the unknown.

Such is the case for P!nk, in her grand return to music charts. Her latest single What About Us tells the story of the marginalized communities who are yearning for inclusion and respect amidst this daunting political climate. The music video pays homage to the rallies and protests that have painted the American canvas since Election Day in 2016 and features minority groups, including two men in a dance duo, as a means of telling the story of America’s overlooked people.

Here are some of the song’s powerful lyrics:

What about us?
What about all the times you said you had the answers?
What about us?
What about all the broken happy ever afters
What about us?
What about all the plans that ended in disaster?
What about love? What about trust?
What about us?

We are problems that want to be solved
We are children that need to be loved
We were willing, we came when you called
But man you fooled us, enough is enough

The song was co-written by P!nk and Johnny McDaid who has written for/with Ed Sheeran and James Blunt among many others. What About Us is a single off of P!nk’s upcoming album Beautiful Trauma which will be out on October 13th.

Watch: Britney Spears Terrified As Man Storms Her Vegas Show Stage

There was a moment of fear and confusion at Britney Spears’ Vegas show last night.

Spears is currently headlining a show at Planet Hollywood in Vegas called Piece of Me. And in the middle of the show a random man climbed up on stage.

In a time where several celebrities have been shot and killed during performances, it’s no surprise that security, backup dancers, and Spears herself had a moment of fear when the man stormed the stage.

Luckily, security was on top of their game as they quickly dog-piled the man (with a few male backup dancers jumping in for added measure).

It was only then that Britney Spears realized something was wrong. Thanks to her mic we could hear her ask, “Is something ok? What’s going on? What’s-What’s happening?” and what faintly sounds like, “Does he have a gun?”

Luckily, the man was subdued easily and Britney was rushed off the stage. There was a pause in the show as security ensured everything was ok before the singer and her dancers came back on to finish off the performance.

If you’re interested in checking out the moment for yourself, you can watch two separate shots recorded by fans down below.
