- Contradicts herself

Giving Her the benefit of the doubt
- Gaga has long been an advocate of tolerance and has pushed an anti-bullying message through a number of platforms; she spoke out and called for bullying to be made illegal after the suicide of a gay student in September, and sent a moving video message to a teen on an anti-bullying campaign in November. In December, she even spoke with President Obama, sharing her experience and ideas on how to eradicate intolerance amongst the youth of America. THE LINK IS BELOW
