Bruce Springsteen Slams Muslim Ban During Concert (VIDEO)
Bruce Springsteen slammed the so-called “Muslim ban” and expressed solidary with protesters during his concert in Australia on Monday. Watch below.
As Gossip Cop has reported, many have called President Trump’s recent executive action on immigration a “Muslim ban” because it affects people from Muslim majority countries. Protests have taken place at airports, public parks, and other areas throughout the U.S. in support of the immigrants and refugees who are now banned from entering the country. And while he’s currently Down Under, Springsteen is still weighing in on the situation.
While performing at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre as part of his “River Tour,” the performer said to the crowd, “Tonight, we want to add our voices to the thousands of Americans who are protesting at airports around our country the Muslim ban and the detention of foreign nationals and refugees. America is a nation of immigrants and we find this anti-democratic and fundamentally un-American.”
“This is an immigrant’s song,” he added, before performing “American Land.” Footage of the moment was shared on Springsteen’s official Twitter account with the quote, “America is a nation of immigrants and we find this anti-democratic and fundamentally un-American.” As heard in the clip, Springsteen received cheers for his comments. Check out the video below.
