Jack White “disappointed” by homophobic security at Canadian concert

White Stripes frontman Jack White has responded to claims that two female fans were told to stop kissing at a recent Canadian concert by an usher.

Allyson MacIvor, who attended the show in Edmonton on Friday 2nd of November, took to Facebook to describe how an employee at Rogers Place had stepped in to tell her to stop kissing her female friend, going as far as to physically insert themselves between the two women.

White responded to the reported incident in an Instagram message saying: “Two people expressing affection shouldn’t have to hide.”

White posted an image of two women kissing at a Beatles concert in 1964, captioned to voice his disappointment in the situation taking place in 2018:  “The news that two women were stopped from kissing during my show in Edmonton really disappointed me.”

The artist finished the post by urging readers to: “promote love and acceptance wherever and whenever we can. “
