Bristol Palin blasted Hollywood stars who won’t perform at Donald Trump’s inauguration next month for what she perceived as hypocrisy.
Those she named in her blog post included Elton John, Celine Dion, Andrea Bocelli, The Chainsmokers, Garth Brooks, Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Aretha Franklin, David Foster, and KISS.
“Trump’s inauguration team sought out some of the world’s greatest musicians, but nearly all of them have refused for fear of backlash or to stand against him politically,” the daughter of former VP candidate Sarah Palin says.
“Isn’t it amazing how ‘not cool’ it is to be conservative in the public eye? Either Hollywood is that far off.. or we have so many sissies we have in the spot light too scared to stand for what they believe in!” Palin wrote.
Reality star Palin, whose family are staunch Republicans and supported Trump throughout his campaign, also complained about the “hypocrisy” of the circumstance.
“If Donald Trump were still just a regular old billionaire and threw in New York City, celebrities would be lined up out the door, and the most famous artists would be pining for a chance to perform,” she said.
“But because he will be inaugurated as the next Republican president in January, these same mega-celebrities, who would normally drool over an invitation to sing for the president, want no part of it.”
