Benton Blount, a finalist on “America’s Got Talent,” says he was kicked off a tour opening up for ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons after he posted a selfie on Facebook wearing a red MAGA hat. In the photo he was also sporting an “I voted” sticker and holding a Chick-fil-A sandwich and drink.

The caption for the post read, “Someone reading this just got offended multiple times. My work here is done! #Vote.”

Blount said he drove from Greenville, South Carolina, to Atlanta for last Wednesday night’s show and learned he was no longer on the bill, the News said, adding that Blount was four shows into a seven-show slot opening for Gibbons.

A spokesman for Gibbons’ tour said Blount was “disinvited to continue the tour because of a creative decision,” WHNS-TV reported. Blount told the News he didn’t speak to Gibbons directly.

Blount also said his post earned him a temporary ban from Facebook because it violated “community standards.”

He added to the paper that he often shares politically themed memes and takes part in “poking fun at politics” on his podcast page but that the photo in question was posted on his personal Facebook page.

“It’s getting ridiculous,” Blount lamented on a video he recorded for fans Wednesday. He added that “all this nonsense needs to stop. … just the fact that you can’t share your opinion anymore without a either social media site taking it down and making you look like a villain when you just said ‘I voted’ all the way to your career being affected …”

It’s a sad state of affairs when your political ideology can get you booted from your job, all because folks at the top don’t like where you stand. We all, as fully functioning adults, should be able to stand up boldly for what we believe is right, to speak our minds freely, especially when what is said is harmless, without fear.

Unfortunately, thanks largely to the advent of social media, that is no longer the case.

One has to wonder if perhaps the best thing about social media, everyone having a voice, is also what is the worst thing about it too?

‘Aquaman’ Jason Momoa Tells Chris Pratt Not To Use Plastic Water Bottles; Pratt Responds With ‘You’re Completely Right.’

Published

Liberal Hollywood actors have a tendency to think more highly of themselves than they ought, and nothing points out this inflated ego than one crusader for a cause scolding a fellow actor for doing something that violates their delicate belief system. Which is precisely what happened when “Aquaman” star Jason Momoa took a swipe at his colleague, megastar Chris Pratt for using a plastic water bottle in a post he put up on social media. Here’s more from Daily Wire: Thankfully, however, Pratt diffused the situation with a gracious response, and Momoa followed that with a follow-up post calling Pratt an “inspiration.” “Bro [I] love [you] but [what the f***] on the water bottle,” Momoa complained in the comment section. “No single use plastic. [C]ome on.” The purpose of Pratt’s post was part of a collaboration with Amazon: “You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with [Amazon] to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020,” the movie star captioned the gym photo.   View this post on Instagram   You’re probably wondering why I’m standing here, low key flexing, gazing into the distance… well, turns out I’m teaming up with @amazon to show you guys everything I use for my workouts, keeping active, and all that fun stuff to get you prepped for 2020. #FoundItOnAmazon #Amazon #Ad http://www.amazon.com/chrispratt A post shared by chris pratt (@prattprattpratt) on Dec 3, 2019 at 8:46am PST Pratt responded with, “Aquaman!

Kanye West Asked ‘Jesus Is King’ Employees To Abstain From Pre-Marital Sex; Says Porn Is ‘Not Okay’

Superstar rap artist Kanye West, who has been all over the news for the last few months due to his open proclamation of Christian conversion, recently opened up about the making of his latest album set to be released soon, “Jesus Is King,” saying he told employees working on the album they had to abstain from pre-marital sex. West also went on to slam pornography saying it’s “not okay.” Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “When collaborating with others on ‘Jesus Is King,’ West set up some lifestyle guidelines that they would have to abide by in order be part of the project,” Billboard reported. “Yeezy asked others to fast during portions of creating and also not partake in any premarital sex at times, which he knew would receive some blowback once it became public.” “There were times where I was asking people not to have premarital sex while they were working on the album,” West told Lowe, noting, “When people pray together and fast together, the power is increased.” The 42-year-old explained that he no longer views himself as a “slave” to the music industry, but as a “free” “son of God” spreading the gospel. West went on to talk about how he feels he has now been called to spread the gospel with his platform, noting how he used to talk about high fashion, alcohol, and others things that had a profound impact on his life. But now, however, all that’s changed. Jesus is what he’s all about now. “Now that I’m in service to Christ, my job is to spread the gospel, to let people know what Jesus has done for me. I’ve spread a lot of things. There was a time I was letting you know what high fashion had done for me, I was letting…
