Raih Penghargaan dari Komunitas LGBT, Mariah Carey Berhadapan dengan Fans Lady Gaga

Belum lama ini, Mariah Carey mendapat penghargaan dari Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation atau lebih dikenal dengan GLAAD Media Awards ke-27 yang digelar di New York pada 14 Mei 2016.

Ternyata Ally Award yang diboyong oleh sang diva berbuntut panjang, pasalnya, para fans Lady Gaga membuat petisi penolakan terhadap Mariah Carey (juga Madonna) yang dianggap tidak memiliki kontribusi aktif di dunia gay namun selalu dihubungkan dengan dunia sehati tersebut.

Bagi Little Monster, sebutan fans Gaga, sungguh miris di saat Lady Gaga membangun Born This Way Foundation untuk membantu jutaan kaum LGBT malah Mariah Carey yang tidak beralasan sama sekali justru dianugerahi penghargaan dari GLAAD.

Petisi penolakan terhadap Madonna dan Mariah Carey karena dianggap telah mengeksploitasi kaum LGBT dilakukan di Change.org, mereka juga menuntut dua diva papan atas ini untuk menyumbangkan minimal 10% dari penghasilan yang diperoleh untuk Born This Way Foundation.

GAGA FANS START PETITION TO STOP MADONNA AND MARIAH ‘EXPLOITING’ THE GAY COMMUNITY

Lady Gaga fans, better known as Little Monsters to some, certainly aren’t renowned for their shyness, and now some are coming together to start a petition to stop Madonna and Mariah Carey from “exploiting” the gay community.

Yep. You heard that right.

The petition on Change.org was started by Gaga fan Joseph Sotelo and – brace yourselves – states: “Madonna and Mariah Carey, who are straight, have been exploiting the gay community for years (especially Madonna).

“Neither have done anything concrete for our community like Lady Gaga has. Mariah Carey recently received a GLAAD award for no reason whatsoever, while Lady Gaga has set up her Born This Way Foundation, which aims to help millions of LGBT youth.

“Madonna and Mariah Carey must donate a portion of their money earned (at least 10%) to the Born This Way Foundation.”

The petition has been addressed to Lady Gaga, Ellen DeGeneres (for some reason) and Barack Obama himself.

Since the petitions creation two weeks ago, it has amassed the grand total of 87 supporters – but the comments speak for themselves…
