Hyatt boycott gets help from Lady Gaga flash mob

    In an effort to draw attention to a boycott called by the workers of Hyatt Hotels, LGBTQ activists staged a flash mob adaptation of Lady Gaga’s song “Bad Romance” in the lobby of the Westin St. Francis hotel in San Francisco. The lyrics were changed to address the workers’ struggle to win a fair contract and affordable healthcare. With an influx of LGBTQ people coming to San Francisco’s annual Pride Celebration next month, Hyatt could be hurt by its decision to not heed the workers’ demands.
