to set this up, country singer Benton Blount, who also appeared on America's Got Talent, recently landed the gig of a lifetime opening for legendary ZZ Top frontman Billy Gibbons all across the South. Yesterday on Election Day Benton posted a photo on Facebook of him wearing a #MAGA hat and eating Chic Fila. His photo got him banned from Facebook for 24 hours. So he took to Instagram to share the post.
Today, after arriving for his tour stop with Billy in Atlanta, Benton was notified that he has been kicked off the tour because of the post and backlash it caused.
Below is the photo, Instagram post and Benton's LIVE announcement to his fans on Facebook. If the video doesn't work, visit the link HERE. What are your thoughts?
