Taylor Swift was scheduled to perform at the horse racing event on November 5th in Melbourne, Australia. Unfortunately, she canceled her plans for the Melbourne Cup this week giving the reasons as some touring conflicts.
The booking agency confirmed the cancellation of the 29-year-olds performance from the Melbourne cup stating that “Regrettably, Taylor is no longer able to make it to this year’s Melbourne Cup. Changes to her Asian promotion timetable have made it strategically outlandish for her to be here.”
When she was announced to be signed for the presence of her at the horse racing event, she was accused by the animal rights groups that she had been endorsing animal rights abuse. She got a lot of hate from these animal rights abuse when the news of her making it to the Melbourne Cup rose.
Coalition for the Protection of Racehorses had slammed the singer and music composer suggesting her to opt-out from the event, stating that, “Taylor Swift has put Cash before compassion by agreeing to perform at the 2019 Melbourne Cup. An event where at least 6 horses have been killed over the recent 6 years. If Taylor Swift cares at all about other animals the way she appears to care about the cats, she will cancel her show and make a big stronger statement that animal abuse is unacceptable.”
When her news of the cancellation came up, no one could be happier than PETA and it appreciated Taylor Swift’s decision to do so.
Emily Rice, a member of the organization stated that “Taylor Swift dumped the Melbourne Cup and PETA couldn’t be happier. The event is loaded with horse breakdowns and passing and is connected to the bloody horse-slaughter industry, which PETA most as of late uncovered in South Korea. None of this brutality is steady with the kind person we realize that Taylor will generally be. PETA – whose motto reads, to some degree, that ‘animals are not our own to use for entertainment’ – restricts speciesism, which is a human-supremacist worldview.”
