Maroon 5 Cancels North Carolina Shows, Still Plans To Play Turkey And Russia

Yet another musical group that is supposedly fighting discrimination by discriminating against a state, all because they are supposedly upset about the state say that people should use the bathroom, changing room, and showers that comport to their actual biology on state, county, and local property, unless they get their documents changed, and, furthermore, allows the private sector to make their own decision on the use of bathrooms, locker rooms, and showers. Choice. Don’t liberals like choice?

(WTVD) Staff inside PNC Arena took down promotional signs for Friday afternoon and a notice was posted online after multi-platinum-selling and Grammy award-winning rock band Maroon 5 announced it is canceling two concerts in the Tar Heel State because of House Bill 2.

The band was supposed to play in Charlotte on Sept. 11 and PNC Arena on Sept. 12.

Frontman Adam Levine and his bandmates issued a statement:

“We have announced that we be canceling our upcoming shows in Charlotte and Raleigh, North Carolina because of the recent passage of the HB2 legislation. This as a difficult decision for us to make as a band. We don’t want to penalize our fans in North Carolina by not performing for them, but in the end it comes down to what we feel is morally right as we feel everyone should be treated equally.”

I have a question for them

None of those three countries is exactly LGBT friendly, nor is the nation of Georgia. They also did not have a problem playing in Houston during their 2015 tour, a city which shot down allowing the gender confused in the bathroom of their daily choice. Nor did they have a problem playing in Houston this year for the NCAA Final Four. So, what changed? Can’t be all that much, as they haven’t cancelled their Russia, Romania, Turkey, and Georgia tour dates. Ask them on Twitter.

    Not that I’d ever want to listen to Maroon5, but backward NC must feel pretty bad for being more poorly regarded than Turkey or Russia or Romania.

    OMG, they’re hypocrites! Good catch. Yet NC continues circling the drain!

    If the citizens of NC want to elect right-wing radicals to punish other of their fellow citizens, that’s their business. But the rest of America doesn’t have to go along, and we’re making it clear we do not plan to go along.

    Public agencies shall require every multiple occupancy bathroom or changing facility to be designated for and only used by persons based on their biological sex.

    And “biological sex” is defined as that on a birth certificate.

    Obviously A LOT has changed Teach a lot that you gave a difficult time coping with
    Funny isn’t it that the same states that tried to hold onto legal racial segregation are the same ones so upset over this
    What has changed Teach? The country has changed
    People no longer feel it is acceptable to discriminate because of ones gender identity or sexual orientation
    Are you having a problem with this change? How has it actually effected YOU?

  3. Jeffery says:

    Here’s the exact wording of the NC bill:

    Public agencies shall require every multiple occupancy bathroom or changing facility to be designated for and only used by persons based on their biological sex.

    And “biological sex” is defined as that on a birth certificate.

    The law requires all individuals wanting to pee in a State-controlled bathroom to have their birth certificate available for inspection by State authorities.

    This is why the rest of the nation objects. We’re surprised conservatives even agree with this, much less that it’s their idea. Unless… unless conservatives are closet authoritarians who would use the Power of the State to punish their political enemies.

    What a shock. Jeffery lies. The state does not require that the person have their birth certificate available for inspection. There is, in fact, no mention of producing a birth certificate by the individual.

    Secondly, NC, like many states, allows for birth certificates to be changed to reflect the current sex of the individual:

    Statute: N.C. Gen. Stat. §§ 130A-118(b)(4), (e) (2005).

    Text: (b) A new certificate of birth shall be made by the State Registrar when . . .

    (4) A written request from an individual is received by the State Registrar to change the sex on that individual’s birth record because of sex reassignment surgery, if the request is accompanied by a notarized statement from the physician who performed the sex reassignment surgery or from a physician licensed to practice medicine who has examined the individual and can certify that the person has undergone sex reassignment surgery.

    The rest of the nation agrees with the bathroom ordinance (not disagrees as Jeffery lies, errrrr states,)

  5. Jeffery says:

    What a shock, gc lies about the birth certificates.

  6. Jl says:

    What a shock-liberals are hypocrites. And the sun will come up in the East tomorrow.

  7. gitarcarver says:

    What a shock, gc lies about the birth certificates.

    What a shock,Jeffery continues to lie.

    There is NOTHING in the law that requires the person to have the birth certificate on their person.

    So as a state record, it is not that someone has to have the birth certificate on them, as the state can check their own records.

  8. Jeffery says:

    What a shock, gc lies about lying. It’s what he does.

  9. Jeffery says:

    So NC can access every birth certificate on earth? Why couldn’t they find Obama’s?

  10. Jeffery says:

    The Semantician strikes again.

    How will the State authorities know who the pisser is to check their database before allowing them to pee? Will Carolinians be required to identify themselves to the Potty Police? Really?

    And you favor forcing people to get their birth certificate changed before they can go pee?

    Here’s what the law says:

    Public agencies shall require every multiple occupancy bathroom or changing facility to be designated for and only used by persons based on their biological sex.

    And “biological sex” is defined as that on a birth certificate.

    How will State Authorities enforce the new law? Teach claims they won’t enforce it. Then why have the law?
