Lorde will do Russia but not Israel

The Herald reports:

Lorde has cancelled her show in Israel after facing criticism.

Fans had demanded the Kiwi songstress join the Boycott Divestment Sanctions Movement which is making a stand against Israel’s oppression of Palestinians.

Some fans. Some fans also demanded she not give in to the bullies.

Lorde is also playing in Russia which has annexed The Crimea and effectively invaded Eastern Ukraine. If performing a concert in a country is now regarded as endorsing the Government of that country, then by that logic she should cancel Moscow also.

A real pity that all her fans in Tel Aviv won’t be able to attend one of her concerts.
