If you listen to the rhetoric, then Trump is struggling to find entertainment for his inauguration festivities. A huge deal was made about one of the Rockettes crying on social media about not being “forced” to perform. The producers set the record straight…
The Washington Examiner reports – The producers of the Radio City Rockettes said dancers can opt out of performing at President-elect Trump’s inauguration following a report that some Rockettes are opposed to participating.
In a statement Friday, the Madison Square Garden Company said the Rockettes always had a choice of whether to perform, though prior reports indicated they did not.
“For a Rockette to be considered for an event, they must voluntarily sign up and are never told they have to perform at a particular event, including the inaugural,” officials said in a statement “It is always their choice.
