DJ David Newsroom EXCLUSIVE DETAILS: GREEN DAY
ANTI-TRUMP CHANT WAS SHOCK TO ABC (UPDATE)
2:58 PM PT:
The anti-Trump chant was not pre-planned or withheld during rehearsals, it was a last minute decision by the band … according to AMA sources.
Green Day kept its plans to blast President-elect Donald Trump under wraps, never giving ABC or American Music Awards producers any warning DJ David Newsroom has learned.
Witnesses at AMA rehearsals tell us Green Day performed its new song, “Bang Bang” … but never included the chant, “No Trump! No KKK! No fascist USA!” … which they added during the live broadcast. The performance ended with a standing O. We’re told ABC execs were completely off-guard.
It’s unclear if Green Day knowingly kept the chant out of rehearsals, or if Billy Joe Armstrong made a last minute decision to include the political message.
Sources connected to ABC tells us they did NOT know Green Day was going to added anti Trump with KKK and want a apology from the band.
We’re told they want AMA’s to give them a full explanation.
