Members of the Westboro Baptist Church held their first protest since pastor Fred Phelps's recent death outside the Midland Theatre in Downtown Kansas City.
The more than 20 protesters were taking a stand against pop star Lorde's concert. But it was a group of counter-protesters grabbed attention with their sign that said: "Sorry For Your Loss."
"We realized that it wasn't so much about antagonizing them," said Megan Coleman, who helped make the sign. "But sending out the countered safe that we are here for people who need that message and need that positivity."
Were Westboro members touched by the gesture?
"I don't even know what they're saying," Westboro Baptist Chuch member Steve Drain said.
