Kelly Clarkson Slams Homophobe Who Called Same-Sex Marriage a 'Sin'

Kelly Clarkson

The Grammy winner defended a just-married woman whose engagement she facilitated during one of her shows two years ago. 

Longtime LGBTQ ally Kelly Clarkson stood up to a homophobe on Twitter who criticized the Grammy winner for sending love to a just-married same-sex couple she helped to get engaged during a 2016 show.

The anti-LGBTQ tweeter praised Clarkson's music while calling being gay "a sin." But Clarkson shut it down in the most loving way possible.

"I almost didn't respond 2 this because hate doesn't deserve a spotlight but u know what, truth does, & the truth is that God is Love, & Love shared between two people should be praised not condemned in my personal opinion," Clarkson tweeted.

Clarkson, who included a same-sex wedding in her "Heartbeat Song" music video, helped superfan Kiana Clark propose to her then-girlfriend Amanda on stage right before Christmas by inviting the couple onstage during a show, according to The Tennessean.

"I never really had a place to call home, until I met Amanda. She's my home and we've been together for over two years now and we own a house together. There's no better way to propose than by doing so with the help of Ms. Clarkson here," Clark said before getting down on her knee and proposing.

The recently wed couple tweeted Clarkson a loving photo of them in their wedding dresses with the caption, "We did it."

Clarkson responded to their photo saying, "Congrats you two," accompanied by a smiley face, a heart, and a bride emoji. That's when the homophobe felt it was time to step in with a hateful remark.

The Clarks are not the only same-sex couple whose engagement Clarkson has facilitated. In 2017 she helped longtime fan Alex Malerba propose to his boyfriend Justin Blake at the Venitian Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.
