Melbourne (ANI): Pop star Lady Gaga has used Twitter as a tool to silence protesters making gay hate speech and violent messages. The group held signs with homophobic phrases and cried out that Lady Gaga was immoral, reports Perez Hilton. In response, the singer took to her Twitter, telling fans to ignore the protests.

"At the risk of drawing attention to a hateful organisation, I would like to make my little monster fan aware of a protest being held outside the Monsterball in St.Louis tonight," the Daily Telegraph quoted Gaga as writing on Twitter.com.

"Although we have had protesters before, as well as fundamentalists at the show, this group of protesters are hate criminals and preach using lewd and violent language and imagery that I wish I protect you all from. Their message is of hatred and divisiveness, but inside at the Monsterball we preach love and unity.

"My request to all little monsters and public authority is to pay these hate criminals no mind. Do not interact with them, or try to fight. Do not respond to any of their provocation. Don't waste your words, or feelings, no matter what you hear or see. You are more fortunate and blessed than they are, and in your heart just pray for them. Although I respect and do not judge anyone for their personal views on any politics or religion, this group in particular to me, is violent and dangerous.

"I wanted to make my fans aware of my views on how to approach, or rather not approach, these kinds of hate activists. Be inspired to ignore their ignorant message, and feel gratitude in your heart that you are not burdened or addicted to hate, as they are. X. Tonight love and hate met in St. Louis. And love outnumbered the hate, in poetic thousands. Hate left. But love stayed. + Together, we sang," she wrote.
