Brad Paisley Posts Selfie With Westboro Baptist Church Members

Brad Paisley confronted members of the Westboro Baptist Church at a concert over the weekend, but the singer didn’t have to raise his voice to make his point.

Paisley was playing in Kansas City, Mo. on Sunday night (June 1), and the group — who routinely protest at musical events in town — turned out for one of their typical demonstrations in front of the venue.

Like Vince Gill, Paisley took to the street to confront the protesters, but unlike Gill — who famously gave the fringe group a serious piece of his mind — Paisley staged a comical photo op with the group, complete with a grinning woman holding a sign proclaiming, “God Hates Drunks.” But unknown to the group, the singer was grimacing in the shot below, which he posted with a message that made it clear what he thinks of them and their message.

“Westboro Baptist Selfie!! Or west-Burro(ass) selfie,” he wrote. “Hopefully they can hear the show out here. We’ll play loud.”

Blake Shelton has also taken on the group in the past, engaging in a heated Twitter exchange when they threatened to protest his show in Kansas City.

Paisley’s current Country Nation World Tour includes a very special appearance at the 2014 Taste of Country Music Festival, which takes place from June 13-15 at Hunter Mountain in New York. Other headliners at the three-day country music and camping festival include Dierks Bentley, Brantley Gilbert and Hank Williams, Jr.
