Rock band Filter had their show cancelled on Thursday night after frontman Richard Patrick posted an anti-Trump video on Facebook.

The problems started during the band’s soundcheck at the Speaking Rock Entertainment Center in El Paso, Texas. Patrick, the lead vocalist, uploaded a video live from the venue to the band’s Facebook page promoting the show later that night.

“A lot of trump bashing!” Patrick promised, along with a request that former U.S. Democratic Congressman and El Paso native Beto O’Rourke come to the performance.

Not long after the video of the band’s soundcheck hit social media, Patrick posted on Instagram to share that the show had been cancelled. Read more…
