Country music superstar Brad Paisley pays a visit to protesters from the Westboro Baptist Church who chose to protest his concert on Sunday night in Kansas City.
Unless you have been living under a ridiculously large rock for the last few years, or simply don’t own a television, get the newspaper, have a smart phone, or any sort of connection with the outside world, there is a very good chance that at one point or another, you have heard of an organization known as the Westboro Baptist Church.
These are the people who have chosen to spread what they interpret as the word of God through a series of protests in which they brandish signs covered in mostly hateful sayings like “God Hates <insert cause here>” and many other hateful things in which I choose not to repeat.
They protest just about everything from military funerals, to concerts, and even celebrity funerals.
Well, as of late it has become common practice for those performers who don’t exactly agree with the WBCs point of view to pay them a visit before said performance.
This was no different for country music superstar Brad Paisley on Sunday night, who decided to troll protesters outside of his concert by coming out and taking a selfie with them.
He then took to his Twitter account to share in the moment with all of his fans.
Westboro Baptist Selfie!! Or west-Burro(ass) selfie. Hopefully they can hear the show out here. We’ll play loud. pic.twitter.com/OrMhJjD8NE

Well played, Mr. Paisley well played.
I’m just spitballing here, but is it just me or does the protester directly behind Paisley seem just a little too happy to be taking a photo with the country music superstar to be one of the people protesting his concert? I;m just saying.
