Country singer Vince Gill, due to the fact that he is divorced and remarried, was the target of Westboro Baptist Church protestors on Sunday at his concert at the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, Mo.
The confrontation was captured on video and uploaded to YouTube (by a user who claims to be against the WBC) and begins with a protestor asking, “Vince Gill, what in the world are you doing out here?” Gill answers simply: “I just came to see what hate looked like.”
When asked by the woman “What are you doing with another man’s wife? Don’t you know that divorce plus remarriage equals adultery?” America’s newest hero fires back: “Don’t you know you fuckers are lucky that you don’t have a sign that says something about my wife?”
Gill also lets the protestors know they’re lacking in grace and, then turning toward another protestor, says, while laughing: “I’ve seen you on TV, man. You’re a big dipshit.”
The glorious video ends with Gill asking, “Are any of you guys Phelpses? Or are you guys like the C-team?”
A spokesperson for Gill told CMT on Monday that he has “no plans” to comment on the encounter. The next musical artists targeted by the WBC will be Mumford & Sons on September 20 in Bonner Springs, Kansas.
