The man himself, Bruce Springsteen, did something very bold today: he cancelled a North Carolina gig in solidarity for the LGBT community, and he sent out this message to the world:
respect and admire him for this, not just for being in solidarity with
us, but how he has chosen to not have his cake and eat it too. He could
have done the show and protested against the anti-LGBT law there, but
instead, he decided to do this coldly.
That's what most celebrities/artists would have done.
Not Bruce. He knows that he
can't have it both ways. It makes his statement even more powerful, more meaningful, and extremely more convincing. We don't call him The Boss for nothing!
