President-elect Donald Trump has confirmed that the Radio City Rockettes will be performing at his January 20 inauguration but at least one Rockette is not thrilled with the idea.
One of the dancer’s, Phoebe Pearl, said she was “embarrassed and dissapointed” to perform at the event.
Pearl posted this on Instagram, “I usually don’t use social media to make a political stand but I feel overwhelmed with emotion. Finding out that it has been decided for us that Rockettes will be performing at the Presidential inauguration makes me feel embarrassed and disappointed.”
Pearl explains the reason behind her disappointment by saying that she didn’t approve of Trump’s use of inappropriate language and his supposed assault allegations.
Pearl continued in her Instagram post with this, “The women I work with are intelligent and are full of love and the decision of performing for a man that stands for everything we’re against is appalling. I am speaking for just myself but please know that after we found out this news, we have been performing with tears in our eyes and heavy hearts #notmypresident.”
Pearl’s post on Instagram has been recently deleted.
The Rockettes have been told by their union that they cannot back out of the event and must attend.
The Republican inauguration has been plagued with massive problems getting any A-list entertainment because of their dislike for Trump and his win over Clinton.
Mark Burnett, the Celebrity Apprentice producer, is in charge of producing the inauguration and he added a well known talent booking agent, Suzanne Bender, to the team to try and round up some big name performers.
Some of the performers who either cancelled, had prior commitments, or refused to perform are Celine Dion, Elton John, Kiss, the Beach Boys, Andrea Bocelli, Garth Brooks, and Kanye West.
Apparently, the lack of A-listers really doesn’t seem to be bothering Trump and he just tweeted this out concerning his recent entertainment dilemma:
The so-called “A” list celebrities are all wanting tixs to the inauguration, but look what they did for Hillary, NOTHING. I want the PEOPLE!
