Lady Gaga Condemns Online Bullying, Asks Twitter To “Monitor And Control” Language

Lady-Gaga-ARTPOP-Promo-Pic-4It doesn’t matter if the weekend spat between Lady Gaga and Perez Hilton was an ARTPOP publicity stunt or an actual quarrel. The damage has been done.

Though the “Applause” singer was quick to delete a vicious tweet about Hilton allegedly stalking her, screenshots live forever, and it didn’t take very long for Gaga’s fans to start threatening the gossip blogger online. In addition to the usual “fat,” “ugly,” and “go kill yourself” jabs, fans also reportedly made threats to kill Hilton’s newborn son. Kids these days!

Empty threats don’t sit well with Gaga, so she decided to combat her own fans’ aggression the only way she knows how: Promotion! Promote that album, girl!

Below, “A Message From Gaga” in which she condemns online bullying while simultaneously promoting her Born This Way Foundation:

“I know how angry you feel sometimes, and I know that when they say things about me you feel that they are saying them about you as well. But music is about love, and is about sharing in the magic of theater. Although pop culture and society have become more negative and critical of the artist over the years, by engaging in this negativity you are allowing it to spread.”

We totally agree, but you know what else doesn’t help? Accusing your former friend of stalking you IN ALL CAPS.

The message also calls upon social networks to “monitor and control abusive and threatening language.”
