Face it, anti-LGBT laws are bad for life and bad for business — and here's another example of that!

Canadian rock star Bryan Adams has canceled an April 14 concert in Mississippi in response to the state's passage of a controversial "religious freedom" bill last week that opens the door to anti-gay discrimination.

The Summer Of '69 rocker posted a message to Instagram late Sunday night confirming his decision to scrap what would have been his concert on Thursday night, writing:

"Mississippi has passed anti-LGBT ‘Religious Liberty' bill 1523. I find it incomprehensible that LGBT citizens are being discriminated against in the state of Mississippi. I cannot in good conscience perform in a State where certain people are being denied their civil rights due to their sexual orientation. Therefore i'm cancelling my 14 April show at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum. Using my voice I stand in solidarity with all my LGBT friends to repeal this extremely discriminatory bill. Hopefully Mississippi will right itself and I can come back and perform for all of my many fans. I look forward to that day. ‪#‎stop1523‬"

Bravo, Mr. Adams!!

He included a simple and poignant image (below), and fans and followers seemed to be backing his decision VERY strongly (below):

Claps and snaps!!

Recently, certain southern states have realized how stupid anti-LGBT laws are… while others have only doubled down in their bigotry.

What'll it be now, Mississippi??
