A US punk band have protested against the Westboro Baptist Church by filming a pornographic film on the organisation's front lawn.

As Spin reports, the group Get Shot – who also run the porn site Get Shot Girls – posted a message on their Facebook page saying they wanted to "cause controversy" with the video and claimed that the church do nothing "except spread hate". The NSFW video, which has been obtained by Gawker, depicts bassist Laura Lush masturbating on the organisation's yard. No representatives from Westboro Baptist Church have commented on the stunt as of yet.

Speaking about the video, Lush said: "The Phelps family and Westboro Baptist Church are ridiculous and do nothing except spread hate and cause controversy. As a bisexual woman and the bass player of a ridiculous punk band, I wanted to spread my legs and cause controversy."

Her bandmate JP Hunter added: "There was a lot of traffic and we saw a few cops at a coffee shop a few blocks away. We barley had enough gas money and cocaine to make it to Denver for our next concert. Since we can’t afford bail, we had to cut it a little short before the cops got called. If someone will bail us out, we will bring a group of girls and a whole camera crew when we come back in a few months."

Westboro Baptist Church has become known for its extreme homophobic views and famed for its 'God Hates Fags' placards and have spoken out against many modern musicians including Radiohead, Slayer and Taylor Swift. Their controversial comments have garnered many responses from artists, including Foo Fighters – who penned an ode to gay sex in the church's honour – and Ed Sheeran, who told its members to "keep your homophobic views to yourself".
