Singers Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato cancel NC shows

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Singers Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato are the latest artists to cancel shows in North Carolina in protest of the state’s new law addressing LGBT rights and bathroom use by transgender people.

Jonas and Lovato issued a statement on Twitter on Monday saying they are cancelling the shows in Raleigh and Charlotte this summer because the goal of their concerts are to allow every person to feel equal, included and accepted.

The statement says the North Carolina law that limits government protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender citizens is hateful.

Bruce Springsteen, Mumford and Sons, Pearl Jam, Blue Man Group and Cirque du Soleil have all cancelled performances in North Carolina since the law was passed last month.
