Kiana and Amanda Clark became engaged in 2016 onstage at a Kelly Clarkson concert when the singer invited them onstage. They recently got married. Ms. Clarkson sent out a tweet offering them congratulations, only to be sent a biting response.
Congrats you two!! 😊❤️ 👰 https://t.co/3l3jiq6EPL— Kelly Clarkson (@Kelly Clarkson)1534725272.0
Twitter user Terri D. Fallis rudely bit back, calling the couple "dikes" and saying same-sex marriage was "still a sin, any way you cut it."
Ms. Clarkson, who has been a supporter of LGBTQ causes since before her career even began, wrote back in the most loving and eloquent way that one can when dealing with a bigot.

"Hate doesn't deserve a spotlight....truth does, & the truth is that God is Love," said Ms. Clarkson. "Love shared between two people should be praised not condemned," she finished.
Kiana Clark saw the homophobic comment regarding her own wedding and responded:

Clarkson has had several gay couples get engaged during her events Back in 2017, she became a co-conspirator (lol) for a surprise proposal from a gay fan to his boyfriend:
And a couple who were featured in her music video for 'Heartbeat Song' got engaged on set:
Ms. Clarkson stands in support of love. "Fans are fans, and no matter what our lives are like, no matter what path we're on, music is the one thing that connects us," she says.
