One Direction, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift have all had their concerts protested by the Westboro Baptist Church but none of them handled it quite as well as Brad Paisley. Instead of ignoring the activists who showed up to protest his concert on June 1, the country star went over and took a hysterical selfie with them!

Brad Paisley wasn’t about to let a protest from the Westboro Baptist Church ruin his concert in Bonnor Spring, Kan. on June 1. In fact, the country star showed his wonderful sense of humor by snapping a side-splitting selfie with the activists and even taking some hilarious videos!

Brad Paisley’s Selfie With Westboro Baptist Protesters: Singer’s Hilarious Photo

Members of the Westboro Baptist Church showed up to protest Brad’s concert in Bonnor Spring, Kan., but instead of taking offense, Brad taunted the church by snapping a selfie with its picketers!

In the picture, Brad is shown making a funny face in front of a grinning protester who is holding a sign that says “God hates drunks”.

Brad hilariously captioned his Instagram post, “Westboro Baptist Selfie!! Or west-Burro(ass) selfie. Hopefully they can hear the show out here. We’ll play loud.”

Although Brad actually doesn’t drink at all, the poster was referring to his hit song “Alcohol,” according to Rolling Stone. Other signs that protesters held said, “Sin breeds violence” and “God controls all.”

Brad also posted a video on his Instagram of himself approaching the picketers.”What do you think? Westboro Baptist selfie?” Brad asks his friend in the funny video. We’re glad he decided to follow through with that hilarious idea!

Brad Isn’t The First Country Star To Be Targeted By Westboro Baptist Church

The Westboro Baptist Church has protested multiple artists at their concerts over the years. Another country singer, Blake Shelton, was targeted by the church in an open letter in September, 2013.

They attacked Blake for divorcing his first wife and eventually remarrying fellow country star Miranda Lambert. They wrote in the letter, “Mr. Shelton, you cannot buy, charm, fake or sing your way into heaven.”

And in March, 2014, the activists picketed a Lorde concert because they believed she was “teaching young people how to be indolent rebels.”

Although Brad isn’t the first singer to have his concert protested by the Westboro Baptist Church (and we’re sure he won’t be the last), he is the only one to boldly take a selfie with the picketers.

Brad just proved to the world that having a sense of humor is sometimes the best way to handle sticky situations — good for you, Brad!
