Last week, we reported on an anti-gun concert being headlined by country music star Tim McGraw. Unfortunately for him, the event just got some very bad news.
The concert was supposed to be benefitting Sandy Hook Promise, an anti-gun charity that was created after the Sandy Hook Massacre. However, on Wednesday, the families of 11 Sandy Hook victims spoke out to say that they do not support the event in any way.
The Sandy Hook families told the press that they wanted “to clarify the issue for donors who might believe they are directly supporting the victims’ families.” They added that Sandy Hook Promise “is at times wrongly assumed to speak for all 26 victims’ families.”
“We wish only to provide clarification for the many generous donors that believe they are directly supporting the families at the center of this tragedy by contributing to the Sandy Hook Promise [organization],” they added.
This news comes just days after McGraw told his angry fans that he refused to backdown from the anti-gun event because he is “leading with his heart.”
“If I have a decision to lead with my head or my heart, I’m going to lead with my heart every time,” he said.
Despite this, many country music fans feel betrayed by McGraw’s support of the anti-gun agenda.
