Celebrities are falling all over themselves to join in on the latest outrage du jour. With the North Carolina boycott being all the rage, Cirque du Soleil made sure they jumped on the bandwagon and announced they won’t perform in North Carolina either.


From WCNC:

Cirque du Soleil, the world-renowned performance group, has joined the likes of Bruce Springsteen and other artists in canceling their programs in North Carolina due to the controversial House Bill 2.

The organization released the following statement on their Facebook page Friday afternoon:

Cirque du Soleil strongly believes in diversity and equality for every individual and is opposed to discrimination in any form. The new HB2 legislation passed in North Carolina is an important regression to ensuring human rights for all. We therefore choose to cancel our scheduled performances of OVO in Greensboro (April 20-24) and our scheduled performances in Charlotte (July 6-10) and our scheduled performances of TORUK – Avatar in Raleigh (June 22-26).

Cirque du Soleil believes in equality for all. It is a principle that guides us with both our employees and our customers. We behave as change agents to reach our ultimate goal of making a better world with our actions and our productions.

They believe in equality for all, except women and children who could be put at risk by sexual predators using LGBT bathrooms to get easier access to their victims. Who cares about them when there are liberal agendas to advance?
