Singer Ciara just offered the best clap back after a bigot criticised her for appearing in Taylor Swift’s epic pride anthem.
Ciara is just one of the 20 cameos appearing in Taylor Swift’s 2019 pride anthem, “You Need To Calm Down”. In it, Ciara acts as the officiant at the wedding of Modern Family star, Jesse Tyler-Ferguson and his real-life husband Justin Mikita – which, apparently, hasn’t gone down well with everyone.

One Ciara fan, with the username, Lucas_Norton101, who took to social media to criticise the singer, wrote, “Ciara. You shouldn’t be doing this. We respect u too much, Being at a gay wedding is one thing and joining them together is, even more, a greater sin. We love you but this wrong”.
Ciara took the complaint in her stride and offer the most epic clap back, saying, “Firstly Christians don’t judge. Secondly, #YouNeedToCalmDown.”
Lucas’ account has now disappeared from Twitter.
Perez Hilton commented on Ciara snap back saying, “I can’t calm down!!! Ciara’s response to a gay hater who criticized her for appearing in Taylor Swift’s power queer music video for You Need To Calm Down is big Jesus energy!! God loves all!”
A note from the editor.
These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. THEGAYUK.com needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.
Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.
If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.
