Macy Gray asks fans if she should boycott Israel
“Soul singer Macy Gray has asked her fans on Facebook whether she should cancel planned concerts in Tel Aviv because of the “disgusting” way the Israeli government treats Palestinians.
“I’m getting alot of letters from activists urging/begging me to boycott by NOT performing in protest of Apartheid against the Palestinians,” she wrote.
“What the Israeli government is doing to the Palestinians is disgusting, but I wana go. I gotta lotta fans there I dont want to cancel on and I dont know how my NOT going changes anything. What do you think? Stay or go?”
After receiving almost 4,000 often impassioned messages in just four days, Gray has announced via Twitter that she would indeed sing in Tel Aviv next month.
“Dear Israel fans. Me and the band will be there in 20 days. Can’t wait. See you then. Peace,” she wrote in a Tweet.”
My advise to her “fans” in Israel? Boycott Macy Gray.
Anyone that would she her perform after she on one hand castigates their country and turns around and tweets about looking forward to taking their money afterall should have their heads examined.
