Ke$ha's dancers crash Westboro Baptist protest of Ke$ha concert

Ke$ha takes on "God Hates Who U R."

Two years ago, the media-hungry bigots of Kansas’s Westboro Baptist Church appropriated pop star Ke$ha’s hit, “We R Who We R,” for their own anti-gay agenda, turning a song about acceptance into “God Hates Who U R.” 

Ke$ha’s current tour stopped in Lincoln, Neb., yesterday. Since they apparently have nothing better to do, WBC protesters were camped outside her concert, blasting their cover. So Ke$ha did what any influential pop star would do and sent her backup dancers to hang out with the protestors.

At least one fan picked up on the irony of WBC protesting Kesha, but not another band in town that night.

Westboro Baptist Church: Trolling for God
Regardless of your opinion of the Westboro Baptist Church, there’s no denying the effectiveness of its Web strategy. More so than any 4chan or YouTube troll, the disturbing religious organization has manufactured controversy online and off, using Twitter and Facebook to inspire vehement reactions to its signs declaring “God Hates Fags.”
