This is a masterful way of responding to haters in 2014.

Country star Brad Paisley took a selfie in front of the haters from the Westboro Baptist Church, who showed up to picket his concert in Kansas over the weekend. Instead of calling the police or shouting at them, he posed for a picture in front of the group, who held signs like "God Hates Drunks" and "Sin Breeds Violence," proving that he's above that nonsense.

Oddly, some of the protesters didn't realize that Paisley was being ironic, because they even smiled for the photos. --Jordan Valinsky
