‘America’s Got Talent’ Finalist: ‘My Pro-Trump Views Got Me Fired From Billy Gibbons’ Tour’
“America’s Got Talent” finalist Benton Blount claims he was kicked off of ZZ Top guitarist Billy Gibbons’ music tour over a pro-Trump post.
He posted a picture of himself wearing a MAGA hat with Chick-fil-A food while wearing an “I voted” sticker on Election Day.
Shortly after he posted the image, he says he received a phone call from his manager letting him know he had been disinvited from the rest of the music tour. He already has completed four out of seven shows.
Blount also claims he was temporarily banned on Facebook over the same post.
The Daily Caller reached out to Facebook for comment, and we have yet to hear back from them.
WHNS-TV reported that Gibbons’ spokesman said that Blount was “disinvited to continue the tour because of a creative decision.”
