They'll give money for every protester that shows up...
Billboard reports that the Westboro Baptist Church has targeted Panic! At the Disco this time and announced plans to protest their concert yesterday in Kansas City, Missouri. They even recorded a song to mock the band (styled as their biggest song), re-named "You Love Sin What a Tragedy." Brendon Urie came up with a plan to donate $20 to the Human Rights Campaign for every WBC member that showed up.
The Human Rights Campaign is a group that promotes equality at home, work and in public for the LGBT community. Only thirteen members actually arrived, but the band decided to donate $1000 to the HRC instead of $260.
Today @WBCSays is going to picket us. For every member of WBC that actually shows up we will donate $20 to @HRC#pride2014
