Lady Gaga accused of influencing young fans to turn gay
Lady Gaga has been accused of influencing younger fans to turn gay after announcing a partnership with Office Depot.
The 26-year-old’s Born This Way foundation recently received a one million dollar pledge from the US retail giants in order to create a ‘braver, kinder school year.’
But the Florida Family Association has issued a statement on its website which argues that the superstar is sending out an ‘irresponsible message to many teens’:
"The one million dollar pledge from Office Depot to the Lady Gaga Born this Way Foundation will influence many teens to embrace homosexuality for their lifetime who may have otherwise worked through their crisis with straight results.
“Thousands of kids who might have otherwise worked through their pubescent sexual identity issues will be inspired to accept the wrong choice based upon this unscientific, emotionally charged propaganda.
"What’s brave or kind about telling thousands of sexually frustrated teens that they were Born This Way when a high percentage of them would have ended up taking the straight heterosexual path for life?"
Lady Gaga and Office Depot, whose collaboration will include a series of back-to-school products such as empowering gift cards and bravery bracelets, have yet to respond to the FFA’s claims.
