Bruce Springsteen’s show in North Carolina didn’t happen yesterday because he canceled it over the state passing a bill that requires transgender people to use the public bathroom that matches their birth certificate and makes it pretty damn hard to sue your job for discrimination. The giant-sized hot piece with impeccable hair plugs we know as Joel McHale went on with his show in Durham, NC on Friday night, but announced that he was donating every dime he made from the gig to the city’s LGBTQ center. Well, now it’s Bryan Adams’ turn to let a state know that he wants to shit all over their anti-LGBT bill.
Bryan Adams pulled out a red marker and drew a big X over his plans to perform in Biloxi, Mississippi on April 14. La’Porsha Renae’s home state recently passed house bill 1523, which is known as the “Religious Liberty” bill and lets businesses throw holy water at the gays while chasing ’em out of the door as they scream, “I rebuke your sinful butt sex gay money in the name of the lord!” The law goes into effect in Mississippi on July 1. Bryan Adams announced on Facebook that because of that law, he can’t with Mississippi right now. Sadly, the people of Biloxi won’t get to feel the walls of their ears tingle as Bryan Adams yodels out that Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves song.
Mississippi has passed anti-LGBT ‘Religious Liberty’ bill 1523. I find it incomprehensible that LGBT citizens are being discriminated against in the state of Mississippi. I cannot in good conscience perform in a State where certain people are being denied their civil rights due to their sexual orientation. Therefore i’m cancelling my 14 April show at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum. Using my voice I stand in solidarity with all my LGBT friends to repeal this extremely discriminatory bill. Hopefully Mississippi will right itself and I can come back and perform for all of my many fans. I look forward to that day. – Bryan Adams #stop1523
Meanwhile, back in North Carolina, freshmen congressman Mark Walker completely destroyed the meaning of the word “bully” when he called Bruce Springsteen that for dumping plans to perform there. Mark Walker added that the likes of Def Leppard and Justin Bieber are still going on with their shows in NC, so who cares about Bruce Springsteen?!
If North Carolina and Mississippi don’t repeal their bills and performers keep canceling shows, the people of those states will only be left with live shows from popped butt pimple Justin Bieber. If you’re in North Carolina or Mississippi, you better file a police report against your state for attempted murder, because I think they’re slowly trying to destroy you.
