Jack White ‘disappointed’ by homophobic incident at Canadian show

Jack White has responded after a fan said she was asked to stop kissing her girlfriend at his Edmonton show on November 2.

Musician Jack White has criticised security staff at his gig, after two women were reportedly told they couldn't kiss each other.

White dedicated his song "Love Interruption" to the women at his concert in Calgary the following night.

Concertgoer Allyson MacIvor says an usher told her she wasn't allowed to kiss her female companion last Friday, Nov. 2, at White's concert at Edmonton's Rogers Place, according to CBC News.

White responded with an Instagram message saying: "Two people expressing affection shouldn't have to hide".

"My good friend pulled me back just as shocked, to finish enjoying the last song, and the lovely moment, before my broken and shocked spirit blew a fuse", the post read.

Charlie Nicholas states his prediction for Red Star Belgrade v Liverpool FC
It would appear that Liverpool have lost some of that bite that made them so impressive last season. Klopp opted to rest Roberto Firmino and give Sturridge a rare start, but he endured a hard game.

"We were immediately interrupted by a young Rogers Place worker, who pulled me to the side, away from my seat, waving her finger disapprovingly, saying 'that's not allowed here, '" MacIvor wrote in a Facebook post, which has since been shared 370 times.

MacIvor wrote on Facebook that she was caught up in the moment, listening to one of her favourite songs, when she grabbed her friend and kissed her.

Shocked, they went to the manager, whom MacIvor says was very apologetic.

CTV News obtained a statement from the Oilers Entertainment Group, which operates Rogers Place, that acknowledged MacIvor's complaint and said there would be an investigation. "I embraced my girlfriend, and some staff member came in between us", explains the Canadian Jack White fan, "and she said, 'This is not allowed here'".

She explained: "When we approached the office, the worker told it as she saw it: 'They were kissing at their seats during the encore, which is inappropriate sexual behaviour'".

She continued, "what we need is for someone to take her, a manager, Roger's Place to take this employee and support them, ask questions and educate them".
