Musicians gotta make a living. Performing at a GOP function, however, is apparently the eighth deadly sin of the entertainment industry. Gospel singer BeBe Winans, a registered Democrat, sang tonight as part of an unpaid gig. He would’ve performed at the DNC, too, but for some unknown reason, they pulled their invitation.
The singer received a tsunami of Twitter spewage for his appearance and misinformed criticism for being a sellout. Talent is supposed to transcend partisanship. Not for the conformity-enforcing Left, unfortunately:
I laughed so hard at someone calling Bebe Winans a 'house negro.' I know, that's so wrong, but it's so funny.—

BeBe Winans, a registered Democrat, did NOT get paid for tonight's performance at the RNC.—

Dear Bebe Winans, tonight you've been singing about America for an audience that doesn't think you should be a part of it. Just so you know!—

Um, Bebe is a man, hater:
Er, once again, he wasn’t paid.
The contemptible #negrospotting hashtag appeared, of course:
One glimmer of decency:
Ya'll leave BeBe Winans alone. He's making his paper. And more importantly bringing Jesus all up and thru the RNC. Glory be to God.—

Correction: In an earlier version of this post, we misspelled BeBe’s name. It’s BeBe not Bebe. Apologies!
