Katy Perry Cancels Concert in China Following Donald Trump’s Election Night Upset
Today (Nov. 10, 2016), Katy Perry surprised by fans by dropping out of her upcoming concert in China. The performance is part of Alibaba’s Singles Day, a 24-hour shopping festival, on Nov. 11. The reason she offered is a “family emergency.”
“Regretfully I must cancel my appearance on the Alibaba Double 11 due to a family emergency,” Perry wrote on the Chinese social media platform Weibo. “I am very sorry to disappoint my fans and look forward to seeing you in China soon.”
Although Perry made no mention of the presidential election results, it’s hard not guess the shocking turn of events didn’t play a part in the pop star’s decision. The “Roar” singer has been an ardent Hillary Clinton since the Democratic primaries.
Do not sit still. Do not weep. MOVE. We are not a nation that will let HATE lead us.
