Lady Gaga is being criticized for sharing a pro-Biden video in which she posed near a pickup truck wearing camouflage while chugging a beer in an apparent effort to pander to working-class Americans.
The singer shared the bizarre video on Twitter Saturday, days before she was scheduled to appear alongside the Democratic presidential candidate at a Pennsylvania rally on Monday. The video, which many found to be condescending, shows Gaga wearing full camouflage except for a pair of knee-high black-and-pink boots. Her T-shirt is knotted up to her chest, revealing her abs as she leans casually against a black truck.
“Hey, this is Lady Gaga, I’m voting for America, which means I’m voting for Joe Biden,” she says after cracking the beer open. “And if you live in Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Michigan, Florida or Arizona, I encourage you to vote. And if you have a friend who lives there, tell them to vote.”
She concludes the video by taking a big sip of the beer before smashing it on the ground in front of her.
“Cheers to the 2020 election,” she concludes.

It didn’t take long for followers to bash the 34-year-old singer for what many viewed as a condescending parody of rural Americans.
“Stunts like this, are exactly why Trump is going to win. Average, hardworking Americans are sick of “celebrities” mocking them for what they wear, drive, eat, drink, and where they choose to work or live,” one user wrote.
Oh, is that what people in these states are like? I’ll be interested to see what you do to pander to inner-city populations, too. PS-True Americans would never waste beer.

“Love ya Gaga but this Vid is Cringe AF 😬 it feels insincere & literally makes me not want to vote at all. I honestly wish you never got involved in politics publicly because it’s distracting from the Power of your Musical & Performing Talents ✨Politics is a Dirty Game Sis,” a third person wrote.
Actor Randy Quaid decided to make his own version of the video and it’s hilarious.
In the video below he shows his support for President Trump dressed in hunting gear and crushing a can of beer.
