Betrayal: Lady Gaga’s Father, Joe Germanotta, Rips Up His Meal Ticket, Tweets Support for Donald Trump


UPDATE: Mr. Germanotta has wisely deleted the Tweet. But it lives here.

EARLIER Lady Gaga — Stephanie Germanotta– has vocally supported Joe Biden for President. She made a ton of videos, and performed at his big final rally in Philadelphia.

So what does her father do? On election night he Tweeted support for Donald Trump. Joe Germanotta has basically ripped up his meal ticket. And not just his: Germanotta owns Joanne restaurant on West 70th St, already plagued by bad publicity for a number of reasons. When word spreads, I doubt Upper West Siders will be flocking to his trattoria.

It just goes to show: you can be rich, famous, and supporting the people around you and they will still betray you. Does Gaga need this crap? No. Neither do we. Even if he supported Trump, Germanotta should have kept his trap shut. What a miserable thing to do.

And what’s his excuse? He Tweets: “You may have noticed my political and spiritual beliefs are different. liberty and freedom of choice would not be political.”

In other words, he was born this way. Stupid. If I were Gaga, I’d pull the plug on that restaurant.
