Lady Gaga’s Fans Claim Madonna Responsible For AIDS, Protest GLAAD Appearance

madonna wheel chairThe feud between Madonna and Lady Gaga has taken a strange and highly inappropriate turn.

Gaga’s Little Monsters are bearing their fangs over Madge’s scheduled appearance at the GLAAD Media Awards next week, where she’ll present Anderson Cooper with a special honor.

Some of Mother Monster’s rabid fans wrote a letter to GLAAD in which they claimed—in all seriousness—that the Material Girl is responsible for the spread of AIDS:


It has come to the attention to Little Monsters everywhere that you are letting Madonna give an award to Anderson Cooper. Not only is this an insult to a true gay rights activist like Lady Gaga, but it insults every gay man and woman on this planet.

Madonna is one of the major reasons for AIDS. Back in the 1980’s, she encouraged gay men to have unprotected sex. While she certainly didn’t start the disease, she and her lack of morals helped it spread.

Please rethink your choice of having Madonna as a presenter. If you don’t, we Little Monsters will strike back in a way you won’t like.

Lady Gaga’s Little Monsters

First of all, as the Examiner notes, Madonna has always been an advocate for safe sex. Check out this super-severe AIDS PSA she did in 1988, at the peak of the epidemic:

Second of all, apparently these miniature beasts are confusing “fan” with “domestic terrorist” by threatening a “strike” GLAAD “won’t like.”

Third of all, this letter managed to insult gay activists — true and false — far more than Madonna ever could.

      Nothing surprising here. If you’re a grown man and you’re still a passionate fan of a pop star — whether it be Madonna, or Lady Gaga, or whoever — then odds are you’re a little bit of a moron.

      Isn’t funny how its always Jamuel who finds these unknown blogs with less than 200 hits, new twitter accounts that follows madonna and madonna fans but not Gaga with zero evidence of being a fan to gaga. Then Jamuel writes the article for Examiner and its always LESTER BRATHWAITE who spreads the fake information here in Queerty.

      Its hilarious how these gays hate Lady Gaga so much and go to such great length to create these fake and fabricated story to slander her.

      I don’t know, Eric, I’ve known thousands and thousands of people who remained passionate about pop stars into their eighties and nineties, including the greats of the early 20th century. I do agree, however, that the “Monster” is a moron.

      What I find odd is that this statement reeks of the bullshit from the religious right. I would love if the moron were to claim sources. It’s preposterous and unnecessary.

      I’m so sick of Stefani and the fabricated character known as Lady GaGa… I’m also sick of Madonna (probably because of Stefani’s character repeating all of Madge’s antics from back in the day but putting a 10’s twist on them)…

      In terms of music, I celebrate the entire catalog of both Stefani and Madge; but wish all of this other nonsense would just go away– sing the songs and go away, both of you. Enough already with this other crap,, we’re sick of it…

      @Eric Auerbach: Agreed, the buzz I’ve been reading is that the “Little Monsters” have stirred the wrong hive, the kind of people who think “cutting for Bieber” was hilarious [for the record, I did too] and think nothing of these useless idiots.

      Other than 2 or 3 PSAs and paying for the hospital bills for her dancers who were dying of AIDS, Madonna has done SHIT for the LGBT community since the early 90’s post “vogue” era of her career.

      Keeping it classy, Gaga fans — as always.

      I hate Gaga. Moreso, I hate her fans. I would love for the author of this threat to have the police show up at their door. See how ‘badass’ this 12 year old boy is (one would assume), getting dragged out & crying like a little bitch.

      Gaga fans are so “anti-bullying”, yet bully the hell out of any celebrity they see as a threat to their “mother” (eg Kelly Osbourne).

      Oh, for a mass euthanasia of all “monsters” (and, of course, their ‘mother’).

      Those aren’t real Little Monsters. Gaga always says to do the opposite of what these tools are doing. She’s always been against this kind of behavior. These are not the fans she calls her Little Monsters, these are crazy bullies who happen to like Lady Gaga’s music but totally ignore her message. Stop posting news articles about what Little Monsters are like, because you’re generalizing and it’s wrong.

      I appreciate the musical and social contributions of both artists, but I don’t buy the hype, either – including this manufactured ‘war’ between the two artists.

      Neither one has any obligation to involve themselves in any social cause. Targeting our communities as a potential market for their product doesn’t create any such obligation either. It’s arguably good business to put their money where their mouths are instead of just providing lip service, but that’s not the same thing as having some kind of sworn duty to us. Frankly, there are some people who would never be satisfied no matter how much some public figure gave of themselves. Some people are just complainers looking for something to bitch about. Regardless, I trust that most people can think for themselves based on an examination of the facs and applying good reason and logic.

      As for someone threatening GLAAD in the name of Lady Gaga and her “little monsters”, the acts of individuals don’t necessarily represent the whole nor the artist, and may rightly be regarded as suspect. Trace it back to the responsible parties if possible, and deal with them according to the law if applicable.

      Gaga isn’t even fit to sniff Madonna’s rotted out crotchless panties. Get back to me when she has an almost 40 year spanning career.

      Having said that this person is obviously not well informed as Madonna has done countless things to support HIV awareness etc.

      Beyond that who cares, Madonna, Cher, Bette, Gaga, Britney, Christina, etc, etc

      It’s funny that people claim that Madonna doesn’t stand up for gay rights today. On her MDNA tour, the Russian government warned her about possible threats to her shows in Moscow and St Petersburg, also the St Petersburg government warned her about promoting an positive “gay agenda”. Did Madonna cancel her shows, no, she performed them and added an excellent 10 minute long speech about the ills og discrimination and homophobia. St Petersburg even tried to sue her, she didn’t back down and the case was thrown out.

      Lady Gaga has threats issued against her shows and she cancels them. Maybe Gaga’s little terrors feel the need to tear everyone down, especially Madonna, to give Gaga some legitimacy. I really wish she would just once stand up and say that they don’t speak for her
