Lady Gaga Fans Slam Madonna's GLAAD Award Engagement, Link Pop Diva To AIDS Crisis (UPDATE)

Posted: Updated:

There's no end in sight for the longstanding Madonna-Lady Gaga feud -- at least as far as the dueling divas' fans are concerned.

Now a pack of "Little Monsters" is petitioning the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), requesting that Madonna not be allowed to present Anderson Cooper with the prestigious Vito Russo Award at the GLAAD Media Awards ceremony in New York on March 16.

UPDATE: 5:16 p.m. -- The petition and blog referred to in this story has been removed from the Lady Gaga fan's website. Story continues below...

Deeming GLAAD's decision to tap the Material Girl "an insult to a true gay rights activist like Lady Gaga," the Gaga fan blog Little Monster Artpop make an even more heinous suggestion, labeling Madge "one of the major reasons for AIDS."

"Back in the 1980's, she encouraged gay men to have unprotected sex," they write. "While she certainly didn't start the disease, she and her lack of morals helped it spread."

If GLAAD officials don't rethink their choice of having Madonna as a presenter, the group has vowed to "strike back" in an unspecified way in their letter.

The post, which can be read in full here, seems to ignore the fact that Madonna has always been a major supporter of HIV/AIDS research, even dedicating proceeds from various concerts to AIDS-related charities over the years.

It isn't the first time Little Monster Artpop has linked the Queen of Pop to the HIV/AIDS crisis. "Madonna told her fans that it was okay to go out and screw anybody and anything," a Jan. 26, 2013 post reads. "Many gay men listened to her, had unsafe sex, and contracted AIDS. They died. They were so stupid to listen to such a slut that their death was karma."

On the other hand, Madge has made several digs at the perceived similarities between Gaga's "Born This Way" and her own 1989 classic "Express Yourself," going as far as to perform a mashup of the two songs on her 2012 MDNA Tour.
