WATCH: Singer Michelle Shocked Stages Bizarre Sit-In Protest

Michelle Shocked is singing a new tune — that of the victim. The alt-folk singer went on a homophobic tirade earlier this month which prompted mass cancellations of her U.S. tour.

Since she’s got nothing but time these days, Shocked took her guitar and sense of righteous indignation to one of those canceled venues — Moe’s Alley in Santa Cruz — and staged an old-fashion sit-in with her face covered and her mouth taped shut.

The AP reports:

The tape across her mouth said “Silenced By Fear.” When asked a question, Shocked shook her head vigorously and strummed her guitar…She pointed to a sign inviting people to pick up a Sharpie marker and write on the white disposable safety suit she was wearing.

The owner of Moe’s Alley, Bill Welch, said he’d be sending “some healing Santa Cruz energy her way.”

Previously, Shocked had planned to give a talk on gay bashing at McCabe’s Club in Santa Monica, something McCabe’s promptly denied.

      She should tape her mouth shut BEFORE saying something stupid. Too late now, Miss Shocked.

      NO TRESPASSING – I would have called the police to get her out of there.

      Could this all be some twisted cry for help?

      I’m starting to feel sorry for her. The guitar jam was good. Tape over the mouth was a good move! Snap out of it, woman!

      It’s a good look for her. She should keep it.

      Forgive and forget are eventually gonna happen to this poor soul.

      Cause that’s the Christ-likeness within us.

      1. Is that really what’s-her-name?

      2. What is “Do you want to hear what’s-her-name’s side of the story” supposed to mean? We her on tape, so we’ve already heard her side of the story.
