What’s the appropriate response to a stranger that asks or, rather, yells for your hand in marriage during your show? It’s easy to laugh off or completely dismiss, but Chvrches’ outspoken vocalist Lauren Mayberry let ’em have it.
The unknown person shouts, “Marry me!” and then, “Marry me! Now!” before Mayberry asks them: “What’s the hit rate on that – when you go to public places and ask women you don’t know if they want to wed you? Does that work out well for you, sir?” After a few more words, the Glaswegian singer apologises to the rest of the audience but says that if no-one said anything to them, they’d never know (that it wasn’t okay). Mayberry has proven time and time again that she doesn’t stand for harassment or misogyny, so her reaction wasn’t out of character. Watch the exchange below.
