Singer Lana Del Rey has pulled the American flag from her tour because she claims it makes her feel unsafe.
The Dailycaller reported: Singer Lana Del Rey said she feels “less safe” under President Donald Trump and has removed the visual of the American flag from her tour because of him.
“It’s certainly uncomfortable,” the 32-year-old singer told Pitchfork in an interview that published Wednesday when asked about America under Trump. “I definitely changed my visuals on my tour videos. I’m not going to have the American flag waving while I’m singing ‘Born to Die.’ It’s not going to happen.”
“I’d rather have static,” she added. “It’s a transitional period, and I’m super aware of that. I think it would be inappropriate to be in France with an American flag. It would feel weird to me now — it didn’t feel weird in 2013.”
“I feel less safe than I did when [Barack] Obama was president,” she continued. “When you have a leader at the top of the pyramid who is casually being loud and funny about things like that, it’s brought up character defects in people who already have the propensity to be violent towards women. I saw it right away in L.A. Walking down the street, people would just say things to you that I had never heard.”
