A bigoted heckler tried coming for the gays at Adele's show — and she wasn't having any of it!

Word to the wise: don't ever come for the LGBTQ+ community in front of Adele, because it probably won't end well for you.

Pride Month may have LITERALLY just started yesterday, but already we have some BS to deal with... like a homophobic heckler who decided to interrupt an Adele concert with their hate.

The Oscar- and Grammy-winning icon is in the midst of the final handful of shows for her Weekends With Adele concert residency in Las Vegas, and during Saturday night's edition of said residency, one concertgoer thought it would be a good idea to yell out "Pride sucks!" during a segment where Adele chats with the audience.

Luckily, Adele, being the ally that she is, wasn't down for the clownery and perfectly shut the homophobe down in front of everyone.

"What was that? Did you just say, 'Pride sucks?'" Adele asked, according to footage that was posted on TikTok by user @kimberly.gray5 from the show. "Did you come to my f*cking show and just say that Pride sucks? Are you f*cking stupid? Don’t be so f*cking ridiculous."

"If you got nothing nice to say, shut up, all right?" she concluded to applause and cheers from the audience.

Though unfortunate, this incident is far from the first time the 36 year old songstress has called out bad behavior during on her shows. Last August, when a fan named Juan Lastra was standing up, singing along, and generally enjoying himself at one of her Weekends With Adele shows, people behind Lastra tried to force him to sit down, even going so far as to reprimand him. Adele noticed the commotion from on stage, and took the time to publicly defend Lastra.

"Stop a minute," she started. "What is going on with that young man there? He's been bothered so much since I came on for standing up. What's going on with him?"

"Why are you all bothering him?" she continued. "Can you leave him alone please? They won't bother you again, my darling. You enjoy the show."

THIS is why we will always stan Adele!

Weekends With Adele is still running now through November. You can get more information on and buy tickets here.
