Lady Gaga sent Twitter into meltdown on Sunday night as a clip of the singer appearing to brush off Caitlyn Jenner went viral.
In the video, filmed outside of Elton John AIDS Foundation’s 30th Annual Academy Awards Viewing Party in West Hollywood, the pair could be seen having a brief and ‘awkward’ chat.
Gaga – whose real name is Stefani Germanotta – is a publicly-known Democrat and has made her views on pro-LGBTQ+ rights known through her music and interviews.
Meanwhile, the transgender star is an outspoken Republican and ‘traditionalist’, and previously angered members of her community by admitting to once being against same-sex marriage but is now ‘OK with it.’
Hard to watch: A video of Lady Gaga’s awkward interaction with Caitlyn Jenner on Sunday at the Elton John AIDS Foundation’s 30th Annual Academy Awards Viewing Party in West Hollywood went viral due to their cringeworthy conversation
During the video, Caitlyn, 72, could be seen asking why she doesn’t bump into Gaga, 36, at their local Starbucks anymore, to which the singer curtly replied that she had ‘switched baristas’.
The video began with the Olympian – who arrived in a red skirt and a tight black top – seen approaching Gaga before the start of the red carpet.
After inquiring about how Gaga was doing, Caitlyn asked, ‘Are you spending time around Malibu anymore?’
After Gaga simply said, ‘Yes,’ the Keeping Up With The Kardashians veteran said, ‘I haven’t seen you at the Starbucks in a while.’

The House Of Gucci star briefly seemed flustered and stuttered at the start of her response.
‘Well, I’ve — I’ve switched baristas,’ she said, before quickly snapping her head to the side and starting to step away, as if to signal that the conversation was over.
Caitlyn still made an attempt to end things on her terms.
‘Well good seeing you,’ she added, at the same time as Elton John’s husband David Furnish — who was cohosting the viewing party — loudly said, ‘Good seeing you, Caitlyn,’ to end the conversation.
Several Twitter users poked fun at the excruciatingly awkward conversation.

In 2017, Ellen DeGeneres revealed the KUWTK star told her in a pre-taped interview for her that she was a ‘traditionalist’ who was against same-sex marriage originally, but was now ‘OK with it.’
‘I’m older than most people in the audience, and I kind of like tradition, you know, and it’s always been a man and a woman,’ Caitlyn said.
‘If that word ‘marriage’ is really, really that important to you, I can go with it,’ she added.
Her comments left Ellen baffled, who said: ‘She still has a judgment about gay marriage.
‘And I said, “You’re wanting people to understand and accept you… and you still have a judgment about gay people and marriage.”‘
