Another rocker takes a stance on LGBT rights, this time in Mississippi.
FOX's Jacquelyn Karl reports:
Canadian rocker Bryan Adams canceling a performance this week in Mississippi because of the state's new law allowing religious groups and some private businesses to refuse service to gay couples.
Adams saying he can't "in good conscience" perform in a state where "certain people are being denied their civil rights because of their sexual orientation."
The move coming after Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band canceled a Sunday show in Greensboro, North Carolina, because of the state's new law blocking anti-discrimination rules for the LGBT community.
Jacquelyn Karl, FOX News.
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. #stop1523
Right on Bryan Adams! Canceling the gig in Mississippi. The other front in the war against discrimination.
