Swift's rep, Tree Paine, tells PerezHilton.com:
Wow. Wow. Wow.
Kanye is straight-up INSANE!!!!!
St. Patrick's Day is a time-honored holiday meant to bring people together, often in a drunken stupor; it should NOT be an instrument to tear them apart!
The celebration isn't about race, gender, religion, political affiliation, sexual orientation, or even ethnicity — it's about wearing green &
binge drinking until you see Leprechauns enjoying an adult beverage responsibly!
Whether it's dying a river green or simply having a parade, most major U.S. celebrate the holiday in some official capacity. Unfortunately, the festivities in several cities — including Boston & NYC — are actually quite intolerant to the LGBT community!
Thankfully, not everyone is cool with these narrow-minded shenanigans! Earlier we told you Sam Adams was pulling out, but apparently they aren't the only ones!!!
Heineken & Guinness, two other major beer manufactures that traditionally partner with St. Patrick's Day parades, has decided to severe a few ties!
Ugh! As disappointed as we are to learn about the parade organizers' intolerance, it's really nice to see companies taking a stand!
