Lena Waithe

Lena Waithe made an anti-religion fashion statement at the 2018 Met Costume Gala on Monday. The 33-year-old screenwriter wore a rainbow cape over her black tuxedo to protest organized religion.

The rainbow flag is a symbol of LGBT pride. Waithe, who is openly lesbian, wore the flag fashioned into a cape over a black gabardine tuxedo designed by Caroline Herrera to protest Catholics and Christians who oppose homosexuality and gay marriage.

Waithe, pictured with “Pansexual” singer Janelle Monáe at the Met Gala, became the first black lesbian to win an Emmy for writing a comedy series.

In her acceptance speech, she thanked her LGBT family including her girlfriend.

“I see each and every one of you. The things that make us different, those are our super powers. Every day when you walk out the door and put on your imaginary cape and go out there and conquer the world because the world would not be as beautiful as it is if we weren’t in it,” she said.

    Team too much. Black gays and lesbians need to stop joining their white counterparts in buffoonery. The rainbow flag is for gay whites IMO.

  • Pitty Patty

    Is being a lesbian THAT hard though? No one really cares.

  • Blue

    Hahahahaha

  • ZRoJoTheLezBeyond

    No, it really isn’t. Extreme displays like this (IMO) should be held for pride parades and such events. A rainbow pin or rainbow bow tie (for examples) would’ve sufficed. I’m a lesbian but I’m not “in-your-face” with it, shoving it down folks throats.

  • Roxie Moxie

    Ah, the good ole ritualistic MET Gala; all the evil and devil worship thrown right in your faces. Hiding the truth in plain sight is the EASIEST way to brainwash those who REALLY think it’s only about fashion. They are simply showing off their puppets. *shrugs* I’ll never watch.

  • MJF

    I came across a “cussing pastor” on the internet. So I don’t know anymore. If Lena wants to cover her face with a rainbow mask, go right ahead!

  • Yardgirl

    Naw, if any Catholics were offended by this, they were equally offended by the entire spectacle of religious fashion “interpretation”

  • Roxie Moxie

    Right. So, they gotta be all in my face just cuz they eat p*ssy or take/give d*ck? FOH I remember a time when what people did was what they did behind CLOSED DOORS.

    The Catholics and their pedophile Pope is an abomination.

    Everybody in my house hates the cussing pastor. Except me. I think he funny as hell.

  • MoniquetheGeek

    All those that I saw took offense to the overall theme for “culture appropriation.” None singled out Lena’s attire.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Faux outrage.

    Please everyone know that most priests are the gay sons in their respective families.

  • chaisun

    Priest and their sexual abuse epidemic against children, in particularly little boys is also a slap in the face to their religion.

  • chaisun

    They should be vocal and step out being part of a marginalized group. Not only is she a lesbian, she’s a woman but first she’s Black.

  • Roxie Moxie

    And so is everyone who attended this gala. This is nothing more than an open devil worship…what else do they have to do besides literally say they worship Satan? I mean, think about it. If your favorite artist said they worshipped the devil, what would you do? Exactly. So, multiply that by millions. They would have absolutely NO fan base. This whole entire thing was a complete f*ckery and mockery of the Most High. And our fav celebs are down with it. smh

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_
  • tia

    The Catholic church is nowhere near perfect; but yeah, the flag was overkill. It was too much.

  • Pitty Patty

    I really dont care what people worship. Not my business. Just put out good music/and or movies.

    Plus what black folks call worshiping Satan is mostly what our ancestors practiced before we were brainwashed with Christianity. Voodoo/Hoodoo are our “religions” but we afraid of our own selves….

  • Junkanoo

    She needs to burn that flag the gay community is plauged with the same issues as the dominant culture

  • MoniquetheGeek

    I don’t see a problem with her cape.

    So much for the Flag… But who is back there in the White suit is what I want to know…….

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    In the black community if you’re a black gay you’re not treated as another black person so that’s why most black gays gravity toward identifying as gay and no we have no illusions that we’re white.

    The Met isn’t some religious event it’s a glorified costume party for celebrities. Can I just say Lena Waithe is the truth. I love The Chi and give props to a sister making moves regardless of her sexuality.

  • MoniquetheGeek

    Lena is super talented. I love that she’s winning and getting recognized for her creativity.

  • FukkFolks2018

    So when the mamas were outside the Tony Awards protesting and demanding an end to gun violence in response to the gay Orlando nightclub shooting in THEIR RAINBOW FLAGS NOBODY SAID SHIT.

    This proud black dyke does it and its an issue. Im so sick of folks picking and choosing their fake ass outrage. Its not the right venue. Its not the right time. Its not the right INSERT BS EXCUSE ON WHY RIGHT HERE ____________

    Im also over everything WE do being WRONG.

    Do NOT come for my damn comment. I said what I said.

    http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/theater-arts/moms-organize-tony-awards-demand-gun-violence-article-1.2671137

  • Pitty Patty

    And let’s not act like the church isnt full of lesbians. A lot of those gospel singers back in the day were gay.

  • Roxie Moxie

    I care what people worship because (especially in music) their evil messages resonate throughout their music. If you study the brain, and how music effects wave patterns (this is why you hear specific music when you shop, go out to eat, etc), it changes your mood and how you react to things. I personally believe they insert some BS in their music (like chanting and repetitiveness) that actually causes some slight hypnosis. I’ve read a few books from some really good scientists who’ve studied the human brain and it’s effects when exposed to specific stimuli. It’s amazing…..so yeah, I care about the sh*t they put out. lol And this isn’t anything new. It’s been happening for years. There are both positive and negative aspects to it.

    As for the voodoo/hoodoo comment, I did read that somewhere too about it being apart of African “religion” prior to Christianity…..but my point is that these celebs are controlled by people who are much more sinister and very into Satan worship. I mean, tell me why JayZ would ever attend Aleister Crowley’s Church of Satan? I just question things that don’t add up. Beyonce is supposed to be a “christian” yet wears satanic clothing and symbolism. Would you wear it? If no, why not? And if you would, why?

    All I’m saying is that we’re seeing real live rituals happening right in front of our eyes and it’s just crazy that people aren’t asking questions about what they see. We just eat it up.

  • Pnthr

    I don’t see the issue. Catholics need to worry more about all the pedophiles in their midst.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Not nah

  • jayhawkpride

    The flag was total overkill. Because it’s obvious that she is gay. Just like Jason Collins saying he’s black and gay. Ni&&a you are 7′ feet tall, so we can see that you are black!! However, it was part of Obama’s gay is the new black agenda!!

  • L.T.L. Since 2007
  • FukkFolks2018

    Im not even Catholic and I was offended. It was sacrilegous and no one would DARE do that to the Jews or the Muslims. Religion PERIOD is not a joke. Be respectful. That whole EVENT theme was anything but.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I needed this

  • FukkFolks2018

    Can I catch a ride?

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    Everything worn at the Met Gala was a slap in the face to Catholics, including the theme and it’s name Heavenly Bodies. If someone had done this to Muslims, I’m pretty sure someone would have come up missing or dead. People know exactly who to mess with, and Allah ain’t one of them. America would have so many bombs headed to this country. And those same entertainers would not be able to perform in many foreign countries because they know they may not survive the next 24 hours.

  • king shun

    the obamaites and the democrats have made that you are an improved black person if your are also gay.. gay is an upgrade to just being regular black

  • Coy little wink

    Auntie are u mad you didn’t think of this or get to taste Lena’s rainbow yet ?

  • FukkFolks2018

    I said the same exact thing below

  • shelly

    It’s alright for Catholics to be pedophiles but not gay.

  • CaramelDrop

    This Met Gala was a fail and so disrespectful to religion. I guess Christians and Catholics have to blow ish up to get respect today.

  • We Can Do This

    Exactly. And that behavior started with the Greeks and Romans.

  • Pitty Patty

    Aint shyt heavenly about Catholicism. Its very dark and “evil” if you do your research. If you ask me its a cover for “satan worshiping”

  • Pitty Patty

    THIS!!!!!!

  • Pitty Patty

    How was it disrespectful to religion? When religion has been disrespectful to us all for centuries.

  • CaramelDrop

    The more and more I learn about the early catholic church and it’s affiliation/traditions rooted in the Roman Empire, I’m starting to believe the same thing.

  • sherri2016

    Aren’t most Catholic priest gay

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    No they’re peddies. There’s a difference.

    Meanwhile you have priests raping our little boys. Listen here GOD loves us all. The universe has not put any limitations on how we should live.

  • Sofiyah Balthazar

    The Catholics are the real devils go worship your effing statues n let people live in peace.

    I think she does WAY too much. EVERYONE already knows so ALL that extra it’s not necessary.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    She been with too many wh/ite people. Unarmed Blacks are ducking & dodging police bullets.

  • Ni Ni

    so, I’m not the only one who has never seen her show.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    As many racist gays that I know. They just want the numbers. They still do not respect Blacks. MO.
    My Experience.

  • Pitty Patty

    Anybody seen the movie Come Sunday on Netflix. Its about how the powers that be got Pastor Carlton Pearson the hell outta here once he changed his message to “God Loves All ” He was way before his time.

    Its a pretty good watch if you got an hour and 45 minutes to spare.

  • Dr. P

    You know what’s a REAL slap in the face? Catholics being pissed about a lesbian repping gay pride, and ignoring nasty azz priest molesting alter boys…FOH with their pisstivity…

  • Mrs. S. Kidd

    This is a myth that is not true. This narrative of Black gay and lesbians being persecuted by Black folks was created by folks who grew up in very religious Black communities. And believe it or not, not all Blacks are religious. And every gay Black person didn’t grow up with or around judgmental family and friends.

  • MJF

    lmao funny thing is, I like him too

  • KcoolMuziq

    Yes! I went to the private screening of it last month. Because I’m a BIG LaKeith Stanfield fan (whom for some reason Sandra doesn’t cover here).He is the NEXT big thing. His role although small was AMAZING! He is THE ONE to look out for.

    Pastor Carlton Pearson also didn’t believe there was a Hell.

  • Jethro

    People/groups sometimes need to be slapped in the face, Trump supporters for example.

  • Rico768

    I always admired lesbians for having more courage than us to be themselves unapologetically. To live out loud and love.

  • Trace da Ace

    yeah I was thinking the same thing….I think that the event theme was a bit much and very unnecessary. It is like they are turning a religion into a gawdy fashion show…

  • NeverSurprised

    Sandra’s not interested in mannish looking Lena. Sandra likes beautiful, feminine women.

  • Dahlia8765

    ??Yup, so damn annoying. Like just be gay already and sit down with that nonsense. If it’s not a new thing to be gay in 2018 why they keep acting like it is?

  • imright

    why dont hetero ppl have a flag ?

  • the guest

    Christians were offended in general. Hollywood wouldn’t dare do a Jewish or Muslim theme. Wouldn’t dare. Then why Christianity?

  • the guest

    Just read your whole comment after posting. CO-SIGN 100%

  • CaramelDrop

    I can’t speak indefinitely to Catholics as I’m a Christian but bearing so much sexualized flesh and being flashy are a total contrast to being “heavenly”, meek and humble. IMO if the religious theme was to be used, at least respect the traditions. The show could’ve still been artful and fashionable without being so contrasting.

    Most religions savor meekness, humility and most importantly follow scripture. No scripture (that I know of) supports flashy, over-the-top, fleshy sexualized images.

  • the guest

    Exactly.

  • NeverSurprised

    I would pay good money to see any of these Hollywood Hustlers have an event with an Islamic theme, where stars walk around with pictures of the Prophet Mohammed embroidered onto their glittering minidresses.

    Ask Salman Rushdie how many years he had to remain in hiding for disrespecting Islam. They were going to slice his head alllll the way off.

  • Dahlia8765

    Can they just go away already? ? so bloody annoying. They don’t wanna be discriminated against but they keep trying to separate themselves from the group. Like nobody cares if you’re black AND gay in 2018. It’s not a new, hip thing. Go somewhere. Please??

  • Dahlia8765

    What exactly is COURAGEOUS about what they’re doing in 2018????

  • Dahlia8765

    AND SO???

  • Dahlia8765

    Same can be said about Islam. They ain’t any better but some Americans and Hollywood is quick to protect them. Smh

  • Quitedeliteful

    I didn’t even know she was making a statement against the Catholic Church. The church can’t be too upset since they stay diddling little boys all over the world…

  • Dahlia8765

    Oh the gays won’t allow it.

  • Dahlia8765

    Gays diddle little boys as well. If we’re gonna point fingers….

  • NeverSurprised

    Marginalized group? Hollywood is promoting her BECAUSE she’s a black lesbian. She is promoting the sexual message they want fed to black Americans, and they are rewarding her, handsomely, for doing so.

  • Yardgirl

    I agree I am Catholic and the entire event was offensive. I hate that they are trying to make it seem that she was the only one offensive, they all were.

  • Yardgirl

    Agree!

  • FukkFolks2018

    I loved the slay he did…but really I thought the real uproar would be Jared Leto dressed as Jesus. Followed by Robyn and her papal hat. So Lena was just a blip on the radar to me

  • Dahlia8765

    Gays and Hollywood raping little boys as well. Let’s not forget about the gays and Hollywood. They are also big pedophiles. I’m not defending the Catholic priests that have done this but if we’re going to point fingers, let’s point fingers at all involved parties.

  • CaramelDrop

    I replied to you once but it isn’t showing for some reason.

    Lots of reasons. I’m not Catholic so I can only speak from a Christian point of view. First and foremost, where is the humility and meekness? What religion glorifies so much SEXUALIZED flesh when representing itself? They could’ve at least acknowledged scripture and included some sort of humility. Someone had on Black colored latex, WTF is heavenly about that?
    What do you mean religion has been disrespectful to all of us? Religion hasn’t been disrespectful but religious zealots and false selfish individuals have done plenty In the Name of Religion but not religion itself.

  • Dahlia8765

    Hollywood needs to worry about all the pedophiles in their midst because there are SOO many

  • NeverSurprised

    Courage to do what? As soon as they come out everyone falls at their feet. People get fired for saying a word that “offends” them.

    Lena became Hollywood’s over-night darling BECAUSE she’s a black lesbian. Ellen was a struggling standup comedian for years, had a mediocre sitcom, then as soon as she came out, Hollywood rewarded her by making her rich beyond her wildest dreams. Being gay today is a huge career boost.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Go to the next post if you must ask. But some are getting killed in other countries. For being who they are. Lesbians and gay men do live other places than just here you know. Not just that, but here among gay youth (which again includes that PESKY lesbian population), they have higher rates of suicide and suicidal thoughts than anyone else. In this country. So to live out loud and be at PEACE is a blessing and of courage.

    *My statements in no way takes away from the struggles of ANYONE ELSE or any other group of people. So do not start on well black men are getting killed by pigs. Or the Asian people are getting robbed and killed after they close their businesses for the night. I know that. That is not the topic right now.

    Offended? pfft..if anything, Catholics should be offended by the whole sex abuse of children thing in which the so-called leaders of the church willingly, and purposely covered up and/or blamed the child. Disgraceful!! One’s sexual orientation is NOT a cause for offense at this point. IJS

    People need to read about the The Holy War, The Spanish Inquisition, The Crusades and the list goes on and on. The Catholic church is full of hypocrisy considering how many innocent people died in the name of the whatever Pope ruled. While I do not believe in organized religion I do believe the people should be able to worship whomever they wish.

  • Rico768

    you are right as they have been doing it from my knowledge since the late 90s.
    what is it they are doing? Being themselves. Showing others like them that there is no need to live in fear or anything to be ashamed of . they are entering relationships and not being ashamed of it. they are loving themselves and paving a way for others who may not have the courage or willingness to live out loud. they show me that love and relationships are possible and that happiness is obtainable.
    I have never seen a male relationship that was completely respectable in terms of honoring relationship values but have seen many women in relationships that honor what it means to be in a committed relationship.

    I never said she wasnt talented. But there are thousands of young black writers in America who are just as talented and are ignored.

  • Smith Jane

    You are so consumed by your own bigotry and ignorance that you’re talking reckless about stuff that you clearly don’t know anything about. Why don’t you look up how many black women WRITERS have won Emmy’s? Lena put in work and has grinded hard as hell to get to where she is. Her sexuality is just one aspect that some ppl choose to focus on. Don’t discredit this sister and diminish her to her lifestyle simply because she’s not packaged the way you want her to be

    Yeah, he has been squiring that young “woman/man” around for some time now, going on shopping sprees, taking trips, etc.

    I’m glad you don’t see him as an icon because I think he is a user as well. When he won that Espy award, I thought it should have gone to Dr. Renee Richards, who REALLY had courage!!! Limitless courage!!!

    At a time when no one understood this phenomenon, Dr. Richards had to fight for acceptance, respect, his medical license, being able to play tennis — EVERYTHING, and did it all with dignity and grace. He spent thousands and thousands of dollars in court fighting fo his rights.

    I honestly don’t think the gays here give a damn about the gays in other countries. I’m sure they feel bad but they have no connection to them. The gays here run things and are in all areas of influence. The gays here are fine. It’s not like it was decades ago. They need to have a ton of seats. They are just being pests at this point. Just like the annoying new age feminists they need to take all that ‘activism’ to countries that really need it…… or don’t bc we know that all things Western don’t equate all things good. ?

If anything Black lesbians and gay men can look at her and be encouraged to do great things despite being told they can’t. I guess her talent has nothing to do with her achievements at all. Not saying that I don’t understand your point. Agree to disagree.

    What? Hahaha.

    If she wants people to respect her sexual orientation, she should respect their religion.

    Got damn that’s 1 ugly bitch!

  • NeverSurprised

    Bigotry and ignorance? LOLLL. You’re amusing.

    So because I gave my OPINION, that she is enjoying a heightened level of attention because she is a black lesbian, THAT makes me a “bigot”? Bit$h please.

    This is why people are sick of the gays. No one can express an opinion without bring called a bigot or phobic.

    Let me be clear ” I don’t give a single, solitary fvck about whether you think I’m a bigot. Nary a one. That attempt at silencing opinions by calling people silly names only works on white folks.

    I don’t know if Lean has only a sliver of talent, or if she is the greatest thing since sliced bread, and I don”t care. She is enjoying a particularly bright spotlight because she’s black ang gay, and I stand by that.

    If Lena, with her unattractive, thirsty self, looked EXACTLY as she does now, was doing EXACTLY the same work, but was straight, do you think she would have been invited to the Met Gala? Have you ever seen uber-successful writer/producer Shonda Rhimes — one of the most successful black woman in the HISTORY of television — at the Met Gala? No. But I guarantee you, if she suddenly announced she was gay, we would see her as much as we see Lena –which is all the damn time.

    Irrespective of her talent, Lena is being used to advance a black, gay agenda. Period. You are more than free to disagree, but if you think I’m not going to express my opinion, you’re sadly mistaken.

    Janelle Monae is a goddess! And Lena is so dope! I love Masters of None (and the Chi is dope also). So glad to see black women winning in the film/tv industry! Don’t care what she does with her lovers

  • kekeb

    I’d hope the offense would have started with the Priests who molested the kids. . .

  • kekeb

    Real talk!! Same thing I said. I can understand the offense on all parts, but don’t “turn a blind eye” to the years of child molestation and then get mad in 2018 at a lesbian for being gay and wearing an “I’m gay” cape

  • kekeb

    Yeah in Atlanta there’s black gay pride and then the white one. Lol. It’s kind of ridiculous, but I understand it. (Culturally) but in terms of the struggle, I don’t see why not just blend pride events?!

  • kekeb

    Boy I love this GIF! lol

    Lmao……?

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Agreed. I don’t have to agree with a lifestyle to respect the person. Just don’t spend your time flaunting your “gayness” at me anymore than I flaunt being heterosexual at you. Do what you do.

  • Doink_Ahanahue

    Being treated as human is one thing, but any discerning human can see this has gone WAYYYYYY past that.

    They have to have their own bathrooms, their own stores, their own prisons… REALLY?! When whites did that to Blacks/minorities, it was called SEGREGATION. But now many in that community want segregation. It’s a sad cry for attention.

    Being treated equal is not being harassed, taunted, teased, bullied or persecuted in general. But every week (it seems) there is a new march, tweet or something to where the gay community won’t allow people to have their own thoughts and opinions if they differ from that community. This has gone way past treated as human
