Former Florida Congressman Allen West, a Republican, has criticized Lady Gaga for her gay-friendly rendition of the National Anthem.

In her first public appearance since undergoing hip surgery in February, Lady Gaga sang the National Anthem at the Gay Pride Parade's Kick Off Rally in New York City last weekend.

The crowd cheered as the Born This Way singer belted out “home for the gay” instead of “home of the brave.”

“Oh, say does that star-spangled flag of pride yet wave, o'er the land of the free, and a home for the gay,” Lady Gaga sang.

West, a Tea Party favorite, knocked Lady Gaga in a Facebook post.

“Having served in the U.S. Army for 22 years alongside some very brave men and women, I find Lady Gaga's defiling of our National Anthem reprehensible,” West wrote.

“She and all those who cheered her abomination should be ashamed and apologize to every serving and retired member of our Armed Services,” he added.
