Country music festival facing pressure to nix Toby Keith from lineup after Trump inauguration performance

Fox News reports:
A country music festival in Naperville, Ill. is facing pressure to kick Toby Keith out of their lineup after some residents deemed the singer "too political" after his performance at President Donald Trump's inauguration.

Keith, who did not support any candidate in the 2016 presidential election, was forced to defend his decision to perform at the inauguration saying at the time he does not "apologize for performing for our country or military."

The residents of Naperville, where Ribfest will be hosted on June 30, said they protested Keith's upcoming performance not only because of his inauguration performance, but also because they say some of his lyrics were inappropriate. (Though they did not identify said lyrics.)
Looks who's intolerant.
