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.”

Trump or Biden, who will win?

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?

Actor Vince Vaughn Stands His Ground About Viral Trump Meeting

Actor Vince Vaughn is standing his ground and refusing to apologize for a viral meeting he had with President Donald Trump during a college football game that took place earlier this year in January, despite massive backlash he received after the whole thing hit the Internet. Folks, we desperately need more individuals in the entertainment industry like Vince Vaughn who aren’t afraid to speak their minds and won’t back down from doing so when the radical leftists in our nation attempt to silence their voices. via Daily Wire: Rejecting the political Left’s new and fierce adherence to “cancel culture,” Vaughn said he was raised “with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down.” The “Old School” actor was asked during a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times about the backlash from the Trump interaction and calls from the Left to “cancel” him. “In my career I’ve met a lot of politicians who I’ve always been cordial to; I’ve met Nancy Pelosi and was cordial to her as well,” Vaughn explained. “It was the only time I’ve ever met him. We said hello. He was very personable. I didn’t get into policies.” “I think people are more charged than ever about these things,” the 50-year-old actor went on to say. “But I don’t think most people take that stuff as seriously as the small percentage that’s making noise about it.” “I was raised with the idea that you could have different likes and beliefs and you should respect and defend that in other people, not shout it down,” Vaughn stated. “The people you disagree with the most, you should stand up for their right to do that.” In the past, Vaughn has been an…

Check Out This List Of Celebrities Who Have Promised To Leave America If Trump Wins

Published

on

During the last election cycle in 2016, a number of famous folks in a wide range of industries were so distraught by the idea of a President Donald Trump that they vowed to flee from the country if he took home a victory over Hillary Clinton. Fast forward four years later, and basically, none of those people went anywhere. You know why? Because there is no other country on the planet where they can make the obscene amounts of money they pull down for playing music or starring in films, while also not being taxed into oblivion. It’s all just blustering. You’d think they’d be quiet about that kind of thing this go around, knowing that none of us in the real world believe their childish ranting. But, here we are, in 2020, and celebrities are once again making promises they do not intend to keep. via Daily Wire: Bruce Springsteen The Boss said he’d quit the U.S. and just might move to Australia if Trump wins reelection on Nov. 3. “I would consider that,” he said Oct. 14 during a virtual chat with Australian press, according to The Daily Mail. “I love Australia,” he said. “Every time, we have nothing but good times down there. It’s always a treat to come. Love the people, love the geography, great place for motorcycle trips, it’s close to our hearts.” The Boss also went on to predict without a doubt that President Trump would lose on Tuesday, and that if he’s wrong he’ll “see you on the next plane.” Tommy Lee, drummer for Motley Crue said he finds America “embarrassing” and thinks that folks in Europe mock us and said if Trump wins he’s “out of here.” Good riddance. “Dude, I swear to God if that happens, then I’m coming over to…
