‘Pure Heroine’ Lorde turns out to be dirty gutless snowflake

As I predicted, Lorde has cancelled her Tel Aviv concert. The ‘Pure Heroine turns out to be a dirty gutless snowflake.

Lorde has cancelled her show in Israel after facing criticism.

Fans had demanded the Kiwi songstress join the Boycott Divestment Sanctions Movement which is making a stand against Israel’s oppression of Palestinians.

The Grammy award-winning star had announced her world tour on Twitter, confirming she’ll perform in Tel Aviv next year on June 5.

But Israeli media reported today that she had canceled the show.

Israeli news site YNET quoted a statement from organisers confirming the change.

“We regret to announce the cancellation of the Lorde concert in Israel planned for June. The tickets already bought will be reimbursed within 14 business days. As to the circumstances that led to the cancellation of the show, Lorde is expected to publish a statement via Twitter soon.”

Lorde has not yet tweeted herself.

Israel’s Culture Minister is calling on Lorde to reverse her decision.

Miri Regev has dubbed the cancellation ridiculous, and is urging the 21-year-old Aucklander to reconsider.

Lorde has joined a growing list of artists who now refuse to perform Israel, in protest of the country’s treatment of Palestinians.

Jerusalem Post reporter Amy Spiro also believes Lorde should reconsider.

I note she is still going to play in Russia, which has annexed Crimea.

She is just a gutless snowflake, caving in to a few tweets and a couple of letters from cowardly bullies.

She may as well sack her management team, she can put every concert decision to the snowflakes and bullies on Twitter.

I bet this snowflake still banks all the revenues she receives from Israeli song sales. That is just the sort of virtue-signalling hypocrite she would be.

She won’t play Tel Aviv, but is happy to play in Trump’s America. Where are the calls for her to boycott the USA for having Donald Trump as President? Oh that’s right, that is where the money is.

Perhaps she should remember the words of her own song:

All my fake friends and all of their noise
Complain about work
They’re studying business, I study the floor
And you haven’t stopped smoking all night
Maybe the Internet raised us
Or maybe people are jerks

UPDATED: Lorde’s weasel words of an excuse:

If it is such a dream, why let miserable, boycotting bullies ruin it? I won’t let anyone stop my dreams. Snowflakes make me ill.
