Maroon 5 Cancels North Carolina Shows, Still Plans To Play Turkey And Russia

Yet another musical group that is supposedly fighting discrimination by discriminating against a state, all because they are supposedly upset about the state say that people should use the bathroom, changing room, and showers that comport to their actual biology on state, county, and local property, unless they get their documents changed, and, furthermore, allows the private sector to make their own decision on the use of bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers. Choice. Don’t liberals like choice?

(WTVD) Staff inside PNC Arena took down promotional signs for Friday afternoon and a notice was posted online after multi-platinum-selling and Grammy award-winning rock band Maroon 5 announced it is canceling two concerts in the Tar Heel State because of House Bill 2.

The band was supposed to play in Charlotte on Sept. 11 and PNC Arena on Sept. 12.

Frontman Adam Levine and his bandmates issued a statement:

“We have announced that we be canceling our upcoming shows in Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina because of the recent passage of the HB2 legislation. This as a difficult decision for us to make as a band. We don’t want to penalize our fans in North Carolina by not performing for them, but in the end it comes down to what we feel is morally right as we feel everyone should be treated equally.”

I have a question for them

None of those three countries is exactly LGBT friendly, nor is the nation of Georgia. They also did not have a problem playing in Houston during their 2015 tour, a city which shot down allowing the gender confused in the bathroom of their daily choice. Nor did they have a problem playing in Houston this year for the NCAA Final Four. So, what changed? Can’t be all that much, as they haven’t cancelled their Russia, Romania, Turkey, and Georgia tour dates. Ask them on Twitter.
