UPDATE: ROBBIE WAS NOT FIRED. CHECK THE COMMENTS TO READ HIS RESPONSE.
The news media is probably lying to us again. It’s reported that families left the county fair in protest after rodeo clown Robbie Hodges made a joke about transgender individuals. That seems unlikely. County fair people are generally conservative Christians who don’t appreciate the LGBT agenda being rammed down their throats.
A Michigan rodeo clown is out of a job after he joked about gender identity at the Calhoun County Fair last week.
“You’re either a boy or a girl, y’all understand,” “Rockin’ Robbie Hodges told the audience Thursday. “If you’re confused, then you need help, OK?”
“Everybody in here who’s really sure they’re a boy, raise your hand,” he continued. “If you can tinkle on a fire, you go to the boys room. If you can’t, you go to the girls room, right?”
Some audience members appeared to laugh at the joke, but an attendee who recorded the skit said many people left out of protest, a local NBC News affiliate reported.
Megan Harvey, the executive director for the Calhoun County Fair, said she was disappointed by the comments.
“I was very disappointed, because we do not put on a platform for that to happen here,” she told NBC.
Mr. Hodges is an independent contractor with Lost Nations Rodeo Co., which has partnered with the Calhoun County Fair for the second year in a row. The rodeo clown’s boss, Shilo Walden, said Mr. Hodges was fired after the comments were brought to his attention.’
“Lost Nations Rodeo was unaware that those comments would be made and were off script,” the company said in a statement. “Hodges is a well-decorated entertainer, and while we appreciate his services, we do not share the same views or opinions. We sincerely apologize again to all of our fans and look forward to entertaining you in the future.”
The Calhoun County Fair Board is set to decide whether Lost Nations Rodeo will be invited back for another year, NBC reported.
“I never want to see anyone lose their job because we all have a family to support and so on, but I hope he takes home that he can’t do that and this is a family-friendly event,” Ms. Harvey said.
Robbie Hodges is a famous, well respected clown. He will work again. Trannies don’t have the political clout to keep him from working since they’re less than one percent of the population.
