Lady Gaga Shares Sweet Picture With Kesha As She Urges People To ‘Stop Victim Shaming’
And while the singer has shared yet another adorable picture of the two on Instagram, she’s also been urging people to ‘stop victim shaming’.
Gaga showed the love for Kesha yet again this week with a photo of their pair holding hands, but as she’s been spreading the word about her friend’s struggles, she’s had to deal with some trolls in the process.
After somebody replied with what must have been an insensitive comment on the picture, she was quick to fire back with a message explaining why it’s just so wrong to blame the victim.
She wrote: “This is the most upsetting part for me. That the very reason women don’t speak up for years is the fear no one will believe them of their abuser has threatened their life of their loved ones/livelihood in order to keep their victim quiet and under their control.
“What happened to Kesha has happened to many female artists including myself and it will affect her for the rest of her life.
“No one needs to validate Kesha. Why is the victim always the ‘liar’, why do we let people in a position of power get away with behaving inhumanely?
“These guys hide behind the legal system and it’s their litigious behavior that is precisely what they use to rape these girls.
“‘Give me what I want or else I will come after you’, and they have all the money and the resources to do it.”
Last week, Kesha lost her injunction to release music without Dr. Luke – her alleged abuser.
She has also cancelled her upcoming concert at a Chicago university due to ‘personal reasons’.
