Culture Club fans might not have given Kris Jenner the warmest welcome at Saturday's iHeart80s Party in Inglewood, Calif. -- booing the Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch so loudly that she couldn't even be heard from the stage -- but frontman Boy George has her back.

George took to Twitter on Tuesday night (Feb. 23), responding to a fan's joking message about the incident. "Ha @BoyGeorge/#CultureClub fans do NOT like the Kardashians lol. Glad we agree," the fan wrote -- although she might not have anticipated his response.

"My fans should be gracious and kind," he tweeted. "Booing, is just rude. I adore @krisjenner and I don't need anyone's approval." To very loosely paraphrase a Culture Club hit: Do you really want to boo her?
