Tbh ia with you all over this post. If countries like SA and Israel are worse on a human rights level than the US, it's by the smallest of degrees. In addition to all the atrocities you mentioned, our gov't sits by and does nothing while we're terrorized by white supremacist incel nutjobs killing us in mass shootings. That behavior isn't codified in the law but it might as fucking well be!!!

It's funny bc ppl who support boycotting think they're being super woke but at the end of the day, you have to buy into jingoistic thinking for the argument to work. Now I think artists who play private shows for dictators and shit should be vilified, but idg why the average civilians of those countries deserve pop concerts less than any of the rest of us.

Does celebs protesting even have any potential to change gov't policy? I've never heard of jack shit changing in those places bc Lana Del Ray wouldn't do a show there lmao
