Springsteen Cancels Concert in North Carolina Over New Bathroom Law

Soon, North Carolina may be all to themselves without anyone wanting to visit their state.  Superstar Bruce Springsteen today became the latest to cancel a scheduled appearance in North Carolina after the state passed the law.

The newly enacted law requires individuals to use bathrooms that correspond to the gender on their birth certificate and has drawn fierce criticism for excluding legal protections from gay and transgender people.

"To my mind, it's an attempt by people who cannot stand the progress our country has made in recognizing the human rights of all of our citizens to overturn that progress," Springsteen said in a statement.
