A rally took place outside of Lady Gaga’s concert in Seoul.

According to E! Online, activists from a Christian group rallied outside the South Korean capitol’s Olympic Stadium to protest the 26-year-old's concert, calling her show “too homosexual and pornographic.”

The group calls the diva’s performance “obscene” and claims it has the potential to “taint” young people. According to the site, the group called itself the “Civilians Network against Lady Gaga.”

“Some people can accept this as another culture but its impact is huge beyond art and debases religions. Even adults can't see her performance which is too homosexual and pornographic,” the leader of the group, Reverend Yoon Jung-hoon tells Reuters.

Gaga, who is known for promoting equal rights, was excited to take her concert to South Korea. Now, the group is stating they will boycott any company which supports the “Born This Way” singer, including Hyundai.
Jung told Reuters he attended the Thursday evening concert to search for obscene gestures and the promotion of homophobic behavior.

Gaga, knowing of what was going on outside of the concet, tweeted, “I can you hear you Korea. I'm shaking.”
