Malaysian Political Party Denounces Adam Lambert Concert as "Outrageous," Plans Protest

by at . Comments

In July of last year, Adam Lambert faced a picket from hate-minded members of the Westboro Baptish Church, as they protested his participation in the American Idol Live tour with sick signs and ignorant messages.

Now, the singer is entering into another sad firestorm.

Lambert is scheduled to perform in Malaysia on Thursday, but that nation's second largest political party is demanding the cancellation of the concert due to the artist's ties to "gay culture."

"Adam Lambert's shows... are outrageous, with lewd dancing and a gay performance that includes kissing male dancers," Pan Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS) youth leader Nasrudin Hasan told Reuters. "This is not good for people in our country."

In Malaysia, homosexual sex is considered a criminal offense.

There's no indication from Adam that he'll skip the tour date. Despite his agreeance to follow guidelines in the country - singers must keep their clothes on and remain at least 25 feet from the audience at all times - PAS claims it will send one million supporters to protest Lambert if the concert goes on as planned.

If this does go down, it wouldn't be the first time PAS has protested an American artist. Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Beyonce and Gwen Stefani have all faced the group's wrath.

Here's to hoping Adam stays strong in the face of such hate. Send him your best wishes, fans. He'll need them this week.
