Filter’s concert in El Paso, Texas was canceled by the venue after the band posted an anti-Trump joke on their Facebook post advertising the gig. The venue also warned the band against using an upside-down American flag as part of their video display.
The band was scheduled to perform at Speaking Rock Casino on Thursday, but the venue was offended by the flag, along with an anti-Trump joke the band made in the caption of a Facebook video, “This is sound check!! We’re Playing El Paso!!! Get here later and it will be packed!! A lot of Trump bashing! Does anyone know Beto?? Bring Beto!”
According to a separate Facebook post from Filter, the venue told the band they were “getting threatening phone calls and bomb threats from Texans” because of the band’s anti-Trump post. The band claims that their tour manager was napping in the green room and was woken up to 30 security guards and the general manager “shouting expletives and telling the band they were not welcome at the venue.”
