Teenage singer Lorde took to Twitter yesterday to address claims by the Westboro Baptist Church that they would be picketing her upcoming show in Kansas City, Mo.

In a lengthy post, Westboro informed the public that "New Zealand came forth with a young lassie that doesn’t have enough sense to put in a thimble. Now the world has elevated her to the status of an idol. Then the world began to weigh in. They think this and that and blah, blah, barf."

In response, Lorde encouraged her fans to kiss Westboro protestors of the same sex at her show and to wear rainbow clothing.

Though the tweets have since been deleted, Queerty took a screenshot of the pro-gay call to action for Lorde fans. The three tweets reportedly read:

hahaha omg just found out westboro baptist church are going to picket my show in kansas city... everyone wear rainbow clothing to that show... everyone try to kiss church members who are same sex as you they will so love it christmas comin early in kansas city...

Lorde is a supporter of the lesbian, gay bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community, having previously offered an awesome response to a lesbian jab about her friendship with Taylor Swift. When a radio show host joked about the two being "'Ellen' together," Lorde responded by asking the interviewer: "Is there something wrong with lesbians? Is that what you're trying to say?"
