6 Celebrities Boycotting North Carolina and Mississippi

By  Aaron Bandler

After North Carolina implemented a new law to prevent men from entering women’s bathrooms and Mississippi passed a bill protecting religious liberty, leftists have been enraged. Now some celebrities are boycotting the states. Here is a list of them.

1. Bruce Springsteen. “The Boss” canceled his scheduled concert in North Carolina, writing on his website that the bathroom bill in North Carolina is “an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress.”

“Some things are more important than a rock show and this fight against prejudice and bigotry — which is happening as I write — is one of them,” Springsteen wrote. “It is the strongest means I have for raising my voice in opposition to those who continue to push us backwards instead of forwards.”

2. Ringo Starr. The former drummer of The Beatles has also canceled a concert in North Carolina, as he referred to the bathroom bill as “bigotry.”

“I’m sorry to disappoint my fans in the area, but we need to take a stand against this hatred,” Starr said. “Spread peace and love.”

3. Michael Moore. The uber leftist filmmaker is taking a stand against the bathroom bill by refusing to show his latest film, Where To Invade Next, in the state.

People were clearly devastated that North Carolinians wouldn’t be able to see another Moore filled with conspiracy theories and falsehoods:

4. Rob Reiner. Filmmaker and actor Rob Reiner pledged to not film any more movies in North Carolina unless the bathroom bill is repealed.

5. Bryan Adams. Adams canceled a scheduled concert in Mississippi, writing on his website and Instagram account: “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.”

6. Sharon Stone. The actress and film producer will not be filming in her latest film, The Principal, in Mississippi because of their religious liberty law.

“I will not work in any state that holds or is actively creating laws to legally support discrimination against American citizens whether due to their race, religion, gender or sexual orientation, nor where those laws are passed or approved by the government of said state,” Stone said in a statement.

Other musicians, such as Jimmy Buffet and Gregg Allman, have not canceled their upcoming shows but have criticized North Carolina’s bathroom bill. Musician Cyndi Lauper will be hosting a concert in North Carolina to raise money for Equality North Carolina, which is lobbying to repeal the bathroom bill.

Of course, there is nothing discriminatory about North Carolina’s bill, and the same goes for Mississippi. But facts can’t get in the way of leftists trying to garner attention for themselves.
