Pride month has just begun and hecklers are already on the move to make their slights, especially when a celebrity sides with the LGBTQ+ community. They cannot avoid such public tirades from homophobic people. On June 1, when Adele was gracing the audience with her soulful music as part of the "Weekends With Adele" concert residency in Las Vegas, she was interrupted by a heckler. A video captured by a fan from the audience shared by Pop Base (@PopBase) on X shows the "Someone Like You" singer responding to the insensitive person unflinchingly.

"Adele goes off on audience member who yelled, 'Pride sucks,' at her concert tonight," the caption read. Seated by the pianist on stage, Adele made an earful gesture to the audience members for disrespecting Pride Month. "Did you come to my show and just say that Pride sucks? Are you stupid? Don't be so ridiculous. If you have nothing nice to say, shut up, alright?" the British singer snapped back. There was a loud cheer from the audience for the "Rolling In The Deep" singer's comeback, instantly silencing the homophobic heckler.



 

The video was viewed nearly 10 million times in just a couple of days and people lauded the singer's witty response. "I love Adele for this! Why do people love to say cruel things like this? It's so uncalled for and disgusting," said @ONIKASTHONG. "To have Adele, of all people, go off on you means you really said something wrong. To be homophobic during Pride Month too, is ridiculous. In the year 2024, too," noted @arianaunext. "The number of people feeling comfortable enough in their homophobia to slam her for these shows why Pride is necessary," chimed in @JustTalkWrestle.



 



 

The "When We Were Young" singer is known for her empathetic and sensible nature. The extent to which she values a good personality was reflected during her speech when she received the Sherry Lansing Leadership Award at The Hollywood Reporter's 2023 Women in Entertainment Breakfast Gala. Starting the speech with some hilarious quips, Adele spoke about the significance of character over talent and how it's what everyone needs to remember in life. "Talent can't dictate how you move. Talent can't decide how you treat people. It doesn't have a moral compass. Talent cannot read a room," the "Hello," singer said. She continued that talent was just "random," and having talent and lacking character was totally pointless



 

"You can be the most talented person on the planet and only make bad decisions," Adele said. But character, as per the singer, can be "observed, witnessed, taught and passed down." She then emphasized how her mother, grandmother and aunts were boisterous, loyal and cutthroat women from whom she learned to be strong-minded. "They had to learn the hard way what it is to be a woman and so in turn, they hardened. Their character was their armor," the singer explained about the women who influenced her character. Though her journey in the entertainment industry wasn't a walk in the park, she attributed her resilience to the character that the women in her family had passed down to her.
