Lady Gaga to Meet with President Obama Over It Gets Better Suicide Victim
Lady Gaga isn’t one to let something like one of her little monsters committing suicide shortly after quoting her go unnoticed. Upon receiving the heartbreaking news of Jamey Rodemeyer’s death, Gaga has demanded a meeting with President Obama to DO SOMETHING ABOUT BULLYING in our country. Something that works, that is.
Gaga rightly tweeted to her almost 14 million followers that bullying must be considered a hate crime if we have any chance of stopping it.
And you know what? If anyone can instigate lasting cultural change on this matter, we sincerely believe it’s Gaga. Her Equality is the Prime Rib of America speech is seen by many as a cultural turning point in the fight to repeal DADT, which you may have noticed finally kicked the bucket this week.
And while we are hoping our butts off that Gaga and Obama can come up with an actual plan together, they won’t be able to do it without all of us. So won’t you please join us, Facebook, CNN, Cartoon Network, and Sports Illustrated in signing a pledge to call out bullying when we see it, online or otherwise?
Our fingers are crossed for you, LG. Here’s hoping that Jamey Rodemeyer is the very last LGBT life lost to bullying in America.
