They're both doing what they think is right, and we support them either way!
Musicians cancelling their concerts in North Carolina has become the hottest trend when it comes to showing Gov. Pat McCrory just how discriminatory his anti-LGBT bill really is.
Celebs like Bruce Springsteen, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jimmy Buffett, and Bryan Adams have already publicly condemned the state's government for allowing such a bigoted law to pass, and now two more icons have joined them!

Both Ringo Starr and Cyndi Lauper commented on the inequality happening down South on Wednesday… but they actually have differing takes on what to do.
The former Beatle was first to cancel his upcoming show, saying:
"I'm sorry to disappoint my fans in the area, but we need to take a stand against this hatred. Spread peace and love."
Simple and sweet!
On the other hand, Cyndi felt it was necessary to keep her concert scheduled as a show of support to her gay and trans fans, saying:
"I will be donating all of the profits from the show to Equality North Carolina's efforts to repeal HB2 and I am proud of my manager and agent for joining me in this effort by donating their commissions from the show to this vital effort. I look forward to coming to North Carolina and standing up for equality and fairness. If we truly want an inclusive society, we all have to include ourselves in the effort to make that happen. This is the best way I know how to include myself and urge you to join me in the best way you know how.
We're just glad so much of Hollywood is willing to speak up for people on the other side of the country!
What do U think is the best way to fight North Carolina's bigoted bill??
