Video - Lady Gaga Slammed After Performing In a Wheelchair – Haters Have a Field Day

Being Lady Gaga must really be difficult sometimes.

After all, how do you top a dress made out of meat, emerging from an egg, or appearing in any of the hundreds of bizarre costumes she wears?

She always seems to have somebody yelling at her and criticizing her behavior at every turn. And she seems to love it.

Just recently she upset several religious organizations when she released her sexually charged music video for “Judas”.

Now she has found another way to draw attention to herself while at the same time angering a whole lot of good people, disability groups, disabled American advocacy organizations, and spinal injury groups.

Last night, Lady Gaga appeared on stage during a special concert at the Sydney Town Hall in Australia in a wheelchair.

That’s right. She performed a song while rolling around in a wheelchair.

About two-thirds of the way through her shortened set she emerged on stage to perform “You and I” not only wheeling herself around in a wheelchair – but wearing a rubber mermaid tail.

After the show, several organizations representing people in wheelchairs, and patients suffering from paralysis and spinal cord injuries took to the airwaves to slam Madonna Ms. Gaga.

The Roman Reed Foundation took to twitter to say,

"Dear @ladygaga how about using your celebrity status 2 try 2 get us out of wheelchairs instead of cruising in one. Cool?!"

The Foundation later released an official response saying,

"Since this isn't the first time Lady Gaga has used a wheelchair in her performances, I invite her to learn more about the 5.6 million Americans who live with paralysis. They, like me, unfortunately, don't use a wheelchair for shock value. I extend a personal invitation to Lady Gaga to attend one of our Life Rolls On events where quadriplegics and paraplegics surf, skate, and snowboard, so she can see how much is possible beyond a wheelchair. Maybe that will be most shocking to her of all".

People, you have to realize she knows exactly what she is doing. She knows that by appearing in a wheelchair there will be an outcry and her name will be in the news for days. It’s the oldest trick in the book.

While some are slamming her for her bad taste, others are slamming her for once again ripping of another artist.

After repeated complaints that the singer has turned into Madonna, now people are yelling at her for the mermaid and wheelchair stunt – not because it’s in bad taste, but because Bette Midler already did it.

But you can’t deny Gaga’s hoards of ‘lil Monster fans and their dedication to their idol.

With 11.6 million twitter followers, and millions of Facebook fans, we suspect this is just another cry for attention that will only leave her looking for that next plateau of bizarreness – maybe she could amputate a body part and wear it as a hat?

After all, when you have fans who have extremely detailed tattoos of the singer inked to their body you know you have a dedicated fan following.

So the world will just have to let her slip by while we await her next big move. But she better hurry because I think she is running out of people to offend.
