The Rockettes Are Glaring

Screw-you, cha-cha-cha

Screw-you, cha-cha-cha

This piece in Marie Claire is, well, revealing:

The dancer next to Mary was crying. Tears streamed down her face through all 90 minutes of their world-famous Christmas Spectacular as they kicked and pirouetted and hit mark after mark on the glittering Radio City Music Hall stage. This was Thursday, three days before Christmas, the day the Rockettes discovered they’d been booked to perform at the inauguration of President-elect Donald Trump.

“She felt she was being forced to perform for this monster,” Mary told MarieClaire.com in an exclusive interview. “I wouldn’t feel comfortable standing near a man like that in our costumes,” said another dancer in an email to her colleagues…

…Mary says that to her knowledge, no women of color have signed up to perform that day. “It’s almost worse to have 18 pretty white girls behind this man who supports so many hate groups,” she says. The lack of diversity in the kick line is “embarrassing” on a normal day, she says, and will only be more pointed in January. “They’re going to be branded in history as one of those women,” Mary says. “How’s it going to look?”

She and other dancers are concerned about tarnishing the Rockettes’ brand forever. “This is making our show, our job, our name, branded as right-wing. An extreme right-wing,” Mary says. “There’s a reason why everyone else is turning this down. Why are we not?”

Everything that Hair Führer touches gets his Cheetoh-orange stain on it. He’s like King Midas in reverse.

    There’s also the not-too-improbable concern of being groped in public. Trump did that to his own daughter on a national stage, he wouldn’t think twice about doing it to “the help”.

    Well she could bring a small camera with her (as could the other dancers) and make sure everything is recorded, or; Scream really, really, REALLY loud if he comes into the changing area, or; Claim you had an injury and go to the hospital for ‘treatment’.

    Or better yet – Take some ipecac right before you go on stage.
    Now That’s Entertainment!!
    CNN will finally get some real Trump coverage there.

    Party!

    While it’s understandable that the black dancers are refusing to perform, it’s too bad. They should ALL be up there, right in the center, to piss Trump off.

    Shame on the Rockettes Management, (The Madison Square Garden Company) for putting these women in this position. Apparently, they laid down an “edict”. Jerks.
