Andrea Bocelli backs out of Trump inauguration due to liberal death threats
Joe Newby"Scratch a liberal, find a bloodthirsty hatemonger. On Saturday, the UK Daily Mail reported that opera star Andrea Bocelli backed out of singing at Donald Trump’s inauguration after receiving death threats.
"According to the Daily Mail:
The revelation came as another singer – Broadway legend Jennifer Holliday – last night pulled out of the President-elect’s festivities after being threatened and branded an ‘Uncle Tom’.
When blind tenor Bocelli announced he would not sing at this Friday’s celebration, it was widely reported it was because fans had said they would boycott his concerts and records.
But a source said the 58-year-old had been determined to ‘press ahead’ and sing but had pulled out on the advice of his security team after receiving threats to his life.
A source close to Bocelli, a friend of Trump’s, said: ‘Andrea is very sad to be missing the chance to sing at such a huge global event but he has been advised it is simply not worth the risk.’
