Popular country star Travis Tritt is canceling concerts at venues that require mask mandates or vaccine passports.

The country legend says he’s “not against the vaccine,” but he is “against forcing people to take medicine that they may not need and may not want.”

Tritt’s decision caused a furor among the left – with many attacking him or his position on COVID mandates.

Tritt: ‘I Got Literally Hundreds Of Comments And Direct Messages’

Billboard reported Tuesday, “Country singer Travis Tritt is ready to take a hard stance against COVID-19 vaccine and testing mandates at concerts, and announced Monday (Oct. 18) he’s even going so far as to cancel four shows making those requirements.”

“Tritt says the negative comments he received after performing shows with COVID-19 safety protocols on the Brooks & Dunn Reboot Tour convinced him to do things differently for his solo dates,” Billboard noted.

“I got literally hundreds of comments and direct messages from people on all social media platforms, which basically told me how disappointed they were,” Tritt said. “They were heartbreaking.” 

But those weren’t the only messages Tritt received for his decision. His detractors came out in droves.

Tritt also got plenty of critical comments from the left after this story broke.
