Texas State Dance Team Accused of Betrayal for Agreeing to Perform at Inuaguration

“Nicely done.”

When Obama became president, kids in school were encouraged to sing songs about him. With Trump, people are being shamed away from him.

Dance team accused of ‘betrayal’ for joining inauguration

The Texas State University Strutters dance team has come under fire after announcing that it will be performing at President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Since making the announcement in a Facebook post last month, the team has received considerable backlash online, with numerous commenters accusing the Strutters of tacitly endorsing the “racist and misogynistic” views they attribute to Trump.

One alum—who claims that her mother, grandfather, uncle, and aunt are all alumni, as well—said the team’s participation makes her “embarrassed” for the entire school, asking, “How can this institution that has been a part of [my] family support someone so full of hate, so mysogynistic [sic] and racist?”

“Nothing like performing for a misogynistic, racist, homophobic, ill-tempered, emotionally-stunted, ignorant, thin-skinned child to make a group of university students feel really good about themselves,” another commenter posted, adding facetiously, “Nicely done.”

Another individual complained that some previous comments had been deleted, arguing that only “rude and disrespectful” statements can legitimately be removed and pledging to continue reposting her sentiments as many times as necessary.

“The university is showing support to a racist and misogynistic man who was elected to be our president,” the message laments. “He has proven that he has no respect for women, people of color, people with disabilities, and people of the LGBTQ community.”
