Lebanese singer Nancy Ajram, who has quite a big LGBT following, performed last week at the conclusion of EuroPride in Gothenburg, Sweden. Reports are now saying that the singer didn’t want the crowd to be waving rainbow Pride flags during the performance (what?!?!). After facing some serious backlash, the singer is saying that the event’s organizers took down a Pride-flag backdrop and wrote the following message on Twitter:
Concerning the media hype following my concert in Sweden & all the accusations resulting thereof, I would like to clarify that my management and myself have nothing to do with the pride flags & that the stage pride decoration removal decision was taken by the organizer himself.
I would like to clarify once and for all that I respect everyone’s choices without any discrimination. I had never put myself in a position to judgeor issue prejudgements especially that personal life is private and no one has the right to interfere in. We just have to respect it.
I am sorry that this issue took such big attention, because it affected some of my close friends too. The purpose of such hype was to put me in confrontation with a certain group of people. I Love and Respect everyone. That’s all I have to say. Thank you.
The singer caused a previous rainbow stir when she wore a rainbow pride shirt on The Voice Kids.
The above picture is the one she posted on her Instagram. The massive crowd held no rainbow flags.
