Singer Lady Gaga on Monday taunted Russia about its anti-gay law in a series of tweets.

Referring to her St. Petersburg performance in which she defied the law by telling audience members that “you can be gay in my house,” Lady Gaga messaged to her nearly 40 million followers: “Why didn't you arrest me when you had the chance, Russia? Because you didn't want to answer to the world?”

“Sending bravery to LGBTs in Russia,” she added. “The rise in government abuse is archaic. Hosing teenagers with pepper spray? Beatings? Mother Russia?”

“The Russian government is criminal. Oppression will be met with revolution. Russian LGBTs you are not alone. We will fight for your freedom.”

Russia has adopted St. Petersburg's “gay propaganda” law since Lady Gaga performed in the city last December. The law prohibits the positive portrayal of gay men and lesbians in a venue where minors might be present. Its passage has sparked worldwide outrage and calls for boycotts of the Winter Olympics to be held in Sochi and Russian exports, specifically vodka.
