Opera star Andrea Bocelli backs out of Trump inauguration after receiving death threats

More hypocrisy from the party of “tolerance.”

From Daily Mail: Opera star Andrea Bocelli has backed out of singing at Donald Trump’s inauguration after receiving death threats – joining the list of celebrities to decline or cancel on the president-elect.

The revelation of death threats came as another singer – Broadway legend Jennifer Holliday – pulled out of Trump’s festivities on Saturday 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.’

The president-elect’s inaugural committee had announced Friday that Holliday – a Tony award winner who is black – would perform in a concert at the Lincoln Memorial on the eve of the tycoon’s inauguration, joining a lineup featuring country stars Toby Keith and Lee Greenwood.

She pulled out after disgruntled fans – including many from the LGBT community, where she has developed a loyal following – took to Twitter to denounce her slated participation.

Despite the latest cancellations, Trump tweeted on Saturday night that the inauguration was turning out to be ‘even bigger than expected’.

  2. Why not using foreign singers like from the Russian bolshoi ? You have the money, just get the best value for it, if you cannot get Americans doing the job.

  3. The way the Left are behaving after Hillary lost the election should, once and for all, put an end to their preening self-depiction as “caring” and “tolerant” and their malicious stereotype of conservatives as violent haters.

  4. how in the world can people get away with making all of these death threats?
    by failing to do anything, Dept Of inJustice is complicit in every single death threat they fail to prosecute….failed and inept DOJ, unless you’re libtard, they will not help you.
    IMO, courage is doing what is right even when you feel fear….
    the people who drop out are cowards…

    • I believe Bocelli being blind adds much more risk for him and his security team. It’s gotta be a tough call for them.

    • Duh. odumbo’s DOJ. pleeze. After the 20th it might be a different matter. Just need to prosecute a few high profile ones and send to federal penitentiaries. The rest’ll fall in line.
      This is just another reason not the hold the inauguration publicly.

      • YouKnowWho . . . you are absolutely right. As you have said, “Just need to prosecute a few high profile ones and send to federal penitentiaries. The rest’ll fall in line.” Can you imagine the shock the libtards that issued death threats would feel as they were told to dress down and get into the prison orange? That would stop this insanity once and for all.

  6. Crossed my mind that this (Gun Caches,death threats,etc.) COULD be the excuse Obama needs for Martial Law. Kinda late,but I believe still valid until Trump’s sworn in. (?)

    • truckjunkie . . . I am just praying that the hours will pass swiftly until the inauguration is complete! It is terrible for all of us to have to live in fear that Obama may pull some sort of action!

  7. Well, Obama’s DHS wanted to take over Elections due to “Russian hacking.”

    And his Dept. of Energy wants to take over the Power Grid due to “increased risk.”

    And what other Last Minute Jabs has he done? I can’t remember them all.

    Then, all these celeb/entertainers are getting “death threats,” etc. (probably from Obama doped up & on the phone late at night… or maybe Manchelle letting her testosterone speak through her voice, lol).

    Sounds like something messy could be up, but I hope not. It could just be fear-mongering as usual.

  8. That’s unfortunate.

    Even though I was a classically trained singer way back when, and even though I’m not an opera fan, I have always liked Andrea, as I think he is a phenomenal talent as a vocalist.

  9. It is a sad day when people claiming to be Americans feel it is proper to deny 320 million people to the enjoyment of such singers as Bocelli. I have his CDs and enjoy them often. But, it is also sad when performers are denied the opportunity to showcase their talents. And sadder still when they back out. Bocelli I will give a bye since it is hard to protect himself. Now, with the guns found nearby, maybe placed there as a scare tactic in sending a message.
    We have reached a new pinnacle of total disrespect in this country. I pray we can get it back.

    • Amen. BUT what’s really insane is these brave PoS targetted a BLIND person! Does this mega-creepism not tell the world what is at play here?

      When does the denial stop? How many more must die before we rid the the neo-con cancers and anti-Christs? Yes, there will be MANY who will deny Him and act accordingly, followed in the end by their puke puke puke Satan, worshipped by ALL the creeps that were exposed here.

      I’m going to take my meds and go to bed. Can’t deal w/this shit w/o….
