Rocketown Issues Statement About Hostage Calm...

Posted by: Alex DiVincenzo (01/23/13)
Rocketown issued a brief statement regarding the recent Hostage Calm controversy.
StatementRocketown does not comment on personnel issues, but, generally speaking, an employee would not be fired for expressing opinions on marriage. At Rocketown we are welcoming and accepting of all youth. We reach out to all kids, are inclusive and very much care about acceptance of youth from different ethnicities, sexual orientations, financial backgrounds and religions. Our mission is to provide a safe and drug-free environment where kids are welcomed, accepted and loved.

So accepting that they won't let us play there based on our NAME.

Yes, just because we have the word HELL in our name.

So they said absolutely nothing, then? It doesn't matter what "generally speaking ... would" happen, it matters what did happen.

HOB Orlando is on Disney owned property. They usually have a problem when things don't fit into their Disney image, like the word Goddamn.

Honestly hope people only boycott the Nashville venue. Would be messed up to see other venues who probably have nothing to do with the close minded clown act of a venue end up suffering from it.
