Nelly Cancels Meeting With Our Troops
Rapper Nelly cancelled a scheduled ‘meet and greet’ with the service men and women at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson in Alaska yesterday after he claimed to be ill.
Nelly performed at Dena’ina Civic and Convention Center in Anchorage that Friday night. But he complained on twitter the next day, saying he had 102 fever and was throwing up and stated he was not going to be able to meet the troops on Saturday.
Nelly’s Facebook page was bombarded by all who was dissapointed after he didn’t show up. One even posted a pic (see below) of troops sitting and waiting for him to show saying, “A few of the hundred, or so, military and their spouses (some who have their significant other deployed) on Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson in Alaska, that you stood up. Not cool!!!”
Definitely a shame when you cancel a meeting with the very people who fight and risk their lives to allow you to have the freedom to rap and make millions of dollars. You just don’t call in sick to something like this, I’m sure the military doesn’t call in sick when it’s time to fight for our country.
