Donald Trump has had a notoriously difficult time booking singers for his Friday inauguration because entertainers have felt that agreeing to perform would endanger their careers in the liberal world of Hollywood. This weekend, things got even worse for Trump when two singers backed out of his inauguration after they received death threats from liberals.
Daily Mail reported that Italian singer Andrea Bocelli and Broadway star Jennifer Holliday each announced that they will not be performing at the inauguration after all. Bocelli reportedly received tons of death threats after he agreed to perform, and Holliday was threatened as well by liberals who called her “Uncle Tom.”
A source close to Bocelli, who is a friend of Trump’s, said that he wanted to “press ahead” and perform. However, he backed out on the advise of his security team, who told him that he would be risking his life if he sang for Trump.
“Andrea is very sad to be missing the chance to sing at such a huge global event but he has been advised it is simply not worth the risk,” the source said, according to Daily Mail.
Holliday was going to sing at Trump’s “Make America Great Again” concert, which will take place the night before inauguration. After Holliday’s announcement, country music star Toby Keith confirmed that he will still be performing there despite backlash from liberals.
“I don’t apologize for performing for our country or military,” Keith told Entertainment Weekly. “I performed at events for previous presidents [George W.] Bush and [Barack] Obama and over 200 shows in Iraq and Afghanistan for the USO.”
It’s sickening that liberals are trying to blacklist any singer who agrees to perform for Trump. SHARE this story if you think liberals need to SHUT UP and ACCEPT Trump as their president!
