The band Wavves said that Donald Trump supporters are not welcome at its concerts.
On Wednesday, the lead singer of the band Nathan Williams posted a long rant on his Twitter account detailing who is and is not welcome at their upcoming shows, and he said Trump fans are not allowed. Others included racists, homophobes and misogynists. (RELATED: Dixie Chicks Perform In Front Of Defaced Photo Of Donald Trump)
“A few things I wanted to make clear,” Williams tweeted. The singer then included a screenshot of a list he doesn’t want at his shows.

“I don’t want everyone at my shows to be a clone of each other, however, in light of the constant rape, murder, racism, homophobia and misogyny that goes on seemingly everyday, I feel the need to make clear who I personally make music for, and who I don’t,” he added.

If you have ever said “all lives matter” or gone “out of your way” to support police in America to “if you harbor resentment towards homosexual community” or “if you are white and use racial slurs,” you are not welcome at the band’s shows.
“If you support Donald Trump–because this is basically three or four of the aforementioned topics-you are not welcome at a Waaves show,” he continued.
“In fact I would rather have a room half filled with good energy than one filled with hate,” he said. “People are suffering every day and the way I see it, you are either part of the solution or part of the problem.”
The singer has since included a message to the media after the reports of his no Trump supporters policy came out.
“Media: I never said ‘ban,’ don’t know why I have to keep explaining this,” he tweeted. “What am I gonna do? A thorough backround check of everyone at the door?”
