Comedian Gets Last Laugh Against Anti-Gay Protesters

When comedian Lisa Lampanelli found out that members of the Westboro Baptist Church were planning on protesting her show in Topeka Kansas because she’s a gay rights supporter, she decided to turn a bad situation into a funny one.

Lampanelli said that for every protester who showed up from the Westboro Baptist Church, she would donate $1,000 to the Gay Men’s Health Crisis, an HIV/AIDS prevention, care and advocacy organization.

Well, 48 protesters showed up that day with their venomous signs that said things like, “God Hates You.” Lampanelli went outside before her show to see them for herself, and to share a few choice words with them. She said to a cheering crowd (and a confused bunch of protesters), “These a**holes have contributed to the Gay Men’s Health Crisis!”

The comedian later took to her twitter account to say, “Hey guys — Make that $50,000!!! WBC inbreds counted 48 protesters, so I won’t quibble. I’ll make it an even $50,000!!!”

Lisa told TMZ, “It’s gonna be hilarious to write out the checks to the GMHC and have them send thank you notes to the WBC for their ‘generous contributions.'”

That’s certainly a way to take the air out of someone’s protest. Have their presence fuel a cause they despise!
