Singer Charlotte Church rejects Trump’s invitation to perform at his inaugural: ‘You’re a tyrant’

As president-elect Donald Trump‘s inaugural committee still struggles to find performers for his inaugural ball, the latest singer to reject their invitation is doing so on the grounds that she thinks Trump is a “tyrant.”

Welsh singer Charlotte Church took to Twitter and said that after Trump’s staff asked her to perform, “a simple internet search” was enough to convince her that it wouldn’t be a good idea, a sentiment she punctuated with several poop emojis.

“Your staff have asked me to sing at your inauguration,” Church tweeted, addressing Trump. “…a simple Internet search would show I think you’re a tyrant. Bye.”

Artists that have turned down Trump’s invitation so far include Elton John, opera singer Andrea Bocelli, and Celine Dion. Other groups such as the Rockettes and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir have also rejected the invitation.

Actor Alec Baldwin, whose impressions of Trump on Saturday Night Live routinely spark Twitter tirades from the president-elect, has offered to sing at the inauguration only on the condition that he can sing AC/DC‘s “Highway to Hell.” British soul singer Rebecca Ferguson agreed to perform only if she could sing Billie Holiday‘s civil rights protest song “Strange Fruit.”
