British pop star Ellie Goulding was set to perform at halftime during the Thanksgiving Day game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Buffalo Bills in a performance that was sponsored by The Salvation Army. After outrage from her “woke” fans over the fact that The Salvation Army is a Christian charity, and therefore inherently anti-LGBT according to those on the left, Goulding issued an ultimatum, saying that she would cancel her performance if the charity didn’t quickly and generously donate to an LGBT cause.
Of course, the fact that The Salvation Army provides food, shelter, and more to those in need regardless of their religion, political views, or sexual orientation is a fact that was apparently lost on Goulding. Such is the state of today’s outrage culture though; it doesn’t matter how much good you do in the world, if those on the left can find the tiniest reason to disagree with your views then they are sure to treat you with all of the hatred and vitriol that they can muster.
As of right now, Goulding is still set to perform at the Thanksgiving Day halftime show – much to the disappointment of football fans across the nation. However, her entitled and shortsighted demand won’t soon be forgotten.
