VIDEO: Jennifer Holliday Becomes Emotional Talking Death Threats, Racial Slurs From Inauguration Concert

Jennifer Holliday appeared on The View today to explain why she pulled out of the Inauguration Ball after being announced as a performer – she was receiving death threats, and being called racial slurs.

On why the 56-year-old entertainer initially signed on, she said, “Because I’m an artist and I love America. I have performed for four other presidents. I started with Ronald Reagan, daddy Bush, Bush, the Clintons during their eight years… So I didn’t think anything of it.”

“I read everything,” Jennifer said about getting death threats. “They were saying I should kill myself or someone should kill me — all over singing a song.”

“I’m not a liar, nor a hypocrite, and I haven’t done anything to be called names,” Jennifer added, growing very emotional.

    Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to today’s Democratic party. They have threatened other singers into cancelling their inauguration plans, too. They also plan to send professional agitators to the inauguration to cause trouble and harass Trump supporters. Today’s Democrats will not tolerate anyone who doesn’t support what they support. Very different from the Democratic party of of years ago that was open to people with different views and beliefs. I remember how Republicans hated Obama in 2008, but they didn’t try to disrupt the inauguration.

    Lol @ the fact they don’t think black people can be hurtful and racist. They are just like anybody else. That is fine if people have their opinions but this woman is entitled to hers and she has a right to perform it’s what she does. I am tired of people and their feelings and their belief people should take their feelings into account. The world doesn’t revolve around you snowflakes and your opinions. No one cares.
