Adele recently performed her 42nd 'Weekends with Adele' concert at the Caesars Palace Colosseum in Las Vegas. Although the event was meant to showcase the British singer's melodious symphony, it quickly took a confrontational twist, turning the evening sour. A fan allegedly shouted "Pride sucks" from the audience, which Adele could not ignore. She paused her performance and fiercely responded, “Are you f**king stupid?

Adele expressed her astonishment at the audacity of the fan, who had the nerve to attend her show and shout such disrespectful words. Maintaining her elegance, she urged the particular fan to remain silent if they had nothing positive to contribute. Clearly, Adele was not about to accept disrespect toward a community from someone harboring such visible hatred, unable to see beyond mere labels.
