Andrea Bocelli faces growing Trump backlashmain
Fans of the Italian crooner are expressing displeasure at his reported decision to sing at President Donald Trump’s inauguration. Tabloid rumours are spreading of a Boycott Bocelli movement.
The American soprano Aprile Millo has posted:
He has no idea what he is endorsing. Remember he’s from a country that put up with Berlusconi. One freak show to another. I don’t buy his music I appreciate that he’s a nice man but I will absolutely boycott any Bocelli. How about an American tenor? Outsourcing already because there seems to be no American that wants to sing for him. #BoycottBocelli.
Hundreds more are sharing the hashtag #BoycottBocelli.
Bocelli has yet to provide personal confirmation that that he will appear at the White House, though his team have leaked that it’s a done deal.
