Jack White Responds After Venue Tells Gay Fans To Stop Kissing At His Edmonton Show

Jack White has responded after a fan said she was asked to stop kissing her girlfriend at his Edmonton show on Nov. 2.

Allyson MacIvor said she was approached by a Rogers Place employee and told “This is not allowed here” as White belted out his former band’s smash hit “Seven Nation Army”.

White, who dedicated “Love Interruption” to the pair at his next show, in Calgary, then shared a snap of two women kissing at a Beatles concert back in 1964.

His Instagram caption included: “It’s 2018 now and two people expressing affection shouldn’t have to hide.

“The news that two women were stopped from kissing during my show really disappointed me.

“Let’s promote love and acceptance wherever and whenever we can.”

Despite the Rogers Place manager “apologizing profusely” to MacIvor and her friend, the whole thing has still, understandably, left the pair shaken up.

MacIvor told CBC of the incident: “I embraced my girlfriend, and some staff member came in between us, and she said, ‘This is not allowed here.’

“It was very violating and invasive. It’s not something I’d ever imagine experiencing, honestly.”

The pair received an apology from the show’s organizers Oilers Entertainment Group.
