A Lady Gaga comment on Twitter sparked an uproar Thursday in Thailand.

After arriving for a Friday night concert, Gaga tweeted: “I just landed in Bangkok baby! Ready for 50,000 screaming Thai monsters. I wanna get lost in a lady market and buy fake Rolex.”

Thais tend to get upset when the country’s seedy underworld is highlighted by outsiders. “She came to our home, but instead of admiring us she insulted us,” said a commentator on popular Thai web board, pantip.com.

People have camped outside Rajamangala stadium for days.
