Watch Jennifer Holliday Try To Defend Performing At Donald Trump's Inauguration AND Canceling On The View

no title

For someone so talented, she sure is tone deaf…

Jennifer Holliday may be both a black woman and a gay icon, but that didn't stop her from originally agreeing to perform for Donald Trump and his merry band of bigots at his inauguration this Friday.

Luckily for the original Dreamgirl, the Internet QUICKLY set her straight about how bad an idea that was given the President-elect's blatant history of racism, sexism, and homophobia — so now she's making her media rounds to share her side of the story!

Unfortunately for her, though… it's not helping.

The Tony and Grammy-winner stopped by The View Tuesday morning to discuss both her initial booking and subsequent cancelation, much to the confusion of Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin, Jedediah Bila, and Sara Haines.

Seriously — Jennifer's excuse for even taking the job in the first place was she wasn't aware of America's current social climate, saying:

The singer — who has won Tony Awards and Grammys — came under fire on Friday when she was announced as the performer of a concert set as part of The Donald's swearing-in activities in Washington, D.C.

But the woman, long considered an ally to LGBT fans of hers, reconsidered the announcement after seeing the pushback from those who have supported her for so long!

Holliday wrote a long, heartfelt apology letter that was published this morning in The Wrap, and you can see it in full (below):

Donald Trump Officially Gives Up On Getting A-List Inauguration Acts — Toby Keith, Jon Voight, & More Just Announced!

If this is his definition of HUGE… we're no longer scared about that wall.

As if we needed more reasons to not attend Donald Trump's inauguration on January 20, the racist Republican's camp finally started sharing the official line-up this week — and the performers sound just as miserable as his Cabinet!

In addition to previously announced acts Paul Anka, Jackie Evancho, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and (at least some of) The Rockettes, on Friday rockers 3 Doors Down, God Bless the USA panderer singer Lee Greenwood, and the long-expected Toby Keith were added to the list.

Not exactly the A-list anymore, but least we've actually heard of them

However, absolutely no one will be able to top Trump's most famous get: Jon Voight (Yes. That Jon Voight).

It's unclear exactly what he'll be performing, but we hope his audience likes disparaging remarks about Angelina Jolie!! Oh, wait, they probably do…

Unfortunately, original Dreamgirl Jennifer Holliday is also going against her Broadway family's wishes by performing for the alleged golden shower enthusiast.

With just seven days left until the inauguration, who do U think will be announced next??
