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:

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
