"Things are tough, Suzyanne. But now that Bryan Adams won't perform the state fair, I'm forced to rethink my position on everything."— T. Becket Adams (@BecketAdams) April 11, 2016
Previously, Bruce Springsteen announced he wouldn’t be performing in North Carolina due to the state’s HB2, or “bathroom” law. Bryan Adams, who performed in Egypt just last month (which is not exactly a bastion of gay rights), has made a similar announcement regarding Mississippi:

Will an absence of Adams and Springsteen concerts prompt states to reconsider their laws? Confidence is low:

Bryan Adams has never done anything that Bruce Springsteen didn't do first.— Jim Treacher (@jtLOL) April 11, 2016
Before considering a gender-related bathroom law, I hope the legislature will consult with Bryan Adams and Springsteen #SaidNoOne— Stuart (@Ringo6) April 11, 2016
