Adele celebrated the beginning of Pride Month by clapping back at an audience member who she thought made a homophobic comment.

While speaking to the crowd during her “Weekends with Adele” Las Vegas residency show on Saturday, Adele took the time to recognize the start of Pride — which officially kicked off on June 1 and is a celebration of the LGBTQ+ community throughout the month. In a video taken by a fan in the audience, Adele began to go off on someone who she thought yelled “Pride sucks!”

“You come to my f*cking show and say that Pride sucks, are you f*cking stupid?” Adele snapped, pointing her fingers toward the person. “Don't be so f*cking ridiculous.”

She continued: “If you've got nothing nice to say, shut up, alright?” Adele then turned back toward the rest of the crowd and carried on. After the video went viral, another longer version surfaced on X and it sounded like the audience member actually yelled, “Work sucks!” Another person who claimed to be in the audience near the person who yelled said that they did yell “Work sucks,” not “Pride sucks.”

Despite the debate on what was actually yelled out, fans were praising Adele for how quickly she stood up for Pride and didn't allow the heckler to ruin the evening. One user on X took a screenshot of Adele pointing and wrote, “gun fingers adele coming out in defence of the gays iktfr.” Another user wrote, “If there’s one thing Adele gon do outside of sing a fucking ballad down, she’s gonna cuss you out!”

This isn't the first time Adele has had to take matters into her own hands at one of her concerts. Last year, Adele spoke about a growing trend of audience members throwing things at performers after stars like Harry Styles, Drake, Bebe Rexha, and Lil Nas X had all been hit at one point with objects during their concerts. Adele made sure to keep her fans in check and warned that they should never act out at one of her shows.

“Have you noticed how people are like forgetting f*cking show etiquette in America, they’re just throwing sh*t on stage. Have you seen that?” Adele said. “F*cking dare you. Dare you to throw something at me.”
