  • What's not shocking is that she is from Texas

Michelle Shocked's anti-gay performance at Yoshi's last night has certainly revived the folk singer's fame, and not in a good way.

Folk fanatics have been convulsing with anger today after reading reports that Shocked -- who is a born-again Christian (also kinda shocking!) -- told the audience that "God hates fags." It was about this time that majority of the crowd walked out; Shocked staff at Yoshi's cut her mic, turned on the lights, and informed everyone the show was over.

God only knows (!) what she was thinking making this declaration in San Francisco where the only things encouraged to stay in the closet are anti-gay sentiments. Of course, fans quickly became proud critics, venting on Twitter about their new found disdain for the "The most sophisticated hillbilly you'll ever meet."

Here's some of our personal favorite anti-Michelle Shocked moments on Twitter:
