Adele hit back at a homophobic audience member during her latest Las Vegas residency show at Caesars Palace.

The singer, 36, passionately defended the LGBTQ+ community after an attendee at her ‘Weekends With Adele’ show shouted out: ‘Pride sucks’.

She furiously hit back at the bigoted heckler from the stage, fuming: ‘Are you f****** stupid? Don’t be so f****** ridiculous. If you have nothing nice to say, shut up, all right?

Adele calls out homophobic heckler.

Adele has many LGBTQ+ fans and has shown her support for the community on many occasions.

Last year, she celebrated Pride Month during her residency by wearing a stunning black dress with a rainbow flag train and Pride-themed confetti. 

In 2016, Adele also paid tribute to the horrific massacre at gay nightclub, Pulse in Orlando, Florida that killed 49 people.

Speaking onstage, the pop star ally said: ‘I would like to start tonight by dedicating this entire show to everybody in Orlando and at Pulse nightclub last night… 

‘The LGBTQ community, they’re like my soul mates since I was really young, so I’m very moved by it.’

The Hello hitmaker has also confirmed that her famous track I Set Fire To The Rain is a ‘gay anthem’.

She explained she wrote the huge hit after one of her gay friends said her early track Chasing Pavements wasn’t enough of a gay anthem, and so she set about creating a new song for queer people.

Adele has explained that she has received many thankful messages from fans over the years, that said they had gained the courage to come out thanks to her.

She told Out magazine: ‘I get a lot of mail from people who tell me that I make them really happy to be themselves, and really comfortable with who they are, which I love.’

And she has continued to be an ally in her personal life, even becoming a minister to officiate the wedding of her pal Alan Carr and his husband.
