Lady Gaga Speaks Out Against Charlottesville White Nationalist Rally

Lady Gaga Speaks Out Against Charlottesville White Nationalist Rally

Lady Gaga took to her Twitter to speak out against the ongoing events in Charlottesville, Virginia. On Saturday, dozens of torch-carrying white supremacists gathered for a "Unite the Right" rally in a downtown park to protest the city's decision to remove a statue of confederate General Robert E. Lee. Charlottesville officials declared a state of emergency in the city after a car plowed into a crowd of people protesting the nationalist rally, killing one and injuring 19.

"I pray a true leader will rise to expel hatred from America. This is not US! This is Anti-American," Gaga tweeted. "I know we are not created to hate each other, but to help and love. Donald Trump, too afraid to do the right thing cuz you will lose votes? Doesn't matter, younger generation has the answer to be kind."

She urged to use the hashtags #ThisIsNotUs and #BeKind to write positive messages, and asked fans to tweet at the President: "Tweet Donald Trump and tell him how you think he could be kind and be a better leader."
