Pop star Lady Gaga was burned on social media late Monday, with fans furious that the singer “dressed literally like a Nazi” while speaking at Hillary Clinton’s final campaign rally.
Gaga took the stage at a midnight rally in Raleigh, North Carolina for one final push to support Clinton heading into Election Day.
But rallygoers and those watching at home apparently became distracted by the “Poker Face” singer’s bizarre outfit, which featured a red armband and high, buttoned-up collar that some social media users likened to a Nazi uniform.

Before performing her song “Angel Down,” about the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, the singer shouted “Black Lives Matter!” into the microphone, to enthusiastic applause.
But it was the Grammy-winner’s apparel that received that most reaction on social media.

Others saw Gaga’s outfit as proof that people have likened the wrong presidential candidate to Adolf Hitler.

Some of the singer’s fan have pointed out that Lady Gaga’s outfit Monday night may be similar to the black military jacket Michael Jackson wore to the White House in 1990.

Earlier in the night, Gaga encouraged the crowd of Clinton supporters to “stand up” and “be a part of history.”
“We want you to stand up. Be a part of history. What I’m asking you is to be in this moment right now, with us, and fight for your future and the future of our children,” she said.
Gaga was joined later in the evening by singer Bon Jovi, and the pair sang an acoustic version of his song “Living On a Prayer.”
