Adele has called out a heckler in her audience during a recent Las Vegas show whom she believed was criticising Pride Month, but not everything was as it seemed.

The British singer is still performing shows in her ongoing Weekends With Adele residency in Las Vegas.

On Saturday night (June 1), Adele took a moment to wish the punters in attendance a very happy Pride Month.

But Adele believed someone in the audience responded to the singer’s shout-out by yelling “Pride sucks!” from the audience. Adele was not impressed.

“What was that? Did you just say ‘Pride sucks?’ Did you come to my f__king show and say that Pride sucks?” she asked, as the audience cheered her on.

“Are you f__king stupid? Don’t be so f__king ridiculous. If you have nothing nice to say, shut up. All right?”

Later, Adele references Pride Month again, telling the crowd once more, “Happy Pride,” before pointing in the direction of the heckler, “Not to you, though.”

But others who were at the concert shared video proof to clarify that the concertgoer the singer had singled out instead yelled out “Work sucks”.

Adele is a big supporter of the queer community

Regardless, Adele loves her gay fans and the queer community to bits.

In August last year, she called out her own concert’s security personnel for “bothering” a fan dancing along to the show.

“Why are you all bothering him? Can you leave him alone, please?” the singer asked the security guards in footage that went viral.

“They won’t bother you anymore, darling. You enjoy the show. Leave him alone.”

Adele has been performing her Vegas residency since November 2022. The residency will wrap up later in the year.

In 2022, as London celebrated the 50th anniversary of the city’s Pride, the singer borrowed a rainbow flag from a London concertgoer and performed with it draped over her shoulders.

When she last came to Australia in 2017, Melbourne gay couple Chris and Wade got engaged on her stage.

After the horrific Pulse nightclub massacre in Orlando, Florida, Adele paid tribute to the community during her concert.

“The LGBTQ community, they’re like my soul mates since I was really young, so I’m very moved by it,” she said at the time.
