Hopefully, by the time you read this, Trina will no longer be the scheduled headliner at the City of Chester’s 4thof July event. The word just started getting out yesterday and the blowback has been strong on the socials.
Known for making controversial compositions which contain sexual and profane lyrics, Trina is not family friendly in any way, shape, or form. In fact, she’s probably the most profane of all the women rappers. You can’t even clean up her lyrics because the same message comes across even if the profanity is bleeped out or replaced.
As Director of Public Property and Recreation, the 4th of July Celebration should be planned and budgeted in my department. Somehow, recreation related events continue to bypass my department, and, in this case, Mayor Thaddeus Kirkland is sponsoring this event. He didn’t chat with me or any other City Council member that I know of. No one in my department is responsible for selecting the headliner, that I know of.
I just want the record to be clear the I have nothing to do with planning this event. I strongly recommend no parent bring their children to this event. I’m embarrassed and highly disappointed by this event.
For years, I’ve said Chester needs to work on its reputation management. Hiring Trina Da Baddest Bitch as a headliner on the 4th of July event is a serious lapse of judgement and responsibility. How can anyone take the city serious after this nonsense?
Honestly, I don’t even approve of paying for fireworks when the city is on the brink of bankruptcy, but again, no one asked me. Harrah’s ain’t doing fireworks, The Philadelphia Union ain’t doing fireworks. Why are we doing fireworks?
Hopefully, by the time you read this, Trina – Da Baddest Bitch, will no longer be the scheduled headliner at the City of Chester’s 4th of July event. If she is cancelled, it’ll go down as another bad spending decisions for the city because I’m sure Trina is not required to give her deposit money back.
We’ve got to do so much better!
I SAW THIS YESTERDAY AND YES, I WAS SO EMBARRASSED. I’M GLAD YOU SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT WITH TRANSPARENCY. SEEMS TO ME LIKE EVERYTHING’S COMING OUT ON THE WASH.
Yall need to rebuild Columbus elementary and put some air conditioning in these schools sad city how bout not charging kids 30 to swim in a public pool bastards fuck trina
We the people of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA are outraged and disgusted with City Council. Thanks Anonymous for sharing your thoughts and courage for denouncing this scheduled event.
Mr. Roots I am over the top and quite frankly I am disappointed over this announcement 📣 regarding Trina’s invitation to the City of Chester. WHAT TIME ARE WE LIVING IN TODAY? There’s a place and time for everything under the SUN. By this I am referring to this upcoming Fourth of July Celebration to be held at Chester Park for our children and family’s in celebration of OUR FREEDOM AND INDEPENDENCE!
What a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT and SHAMEFUL DECISION BY THE PERSON OR GROUP OF FOLKS WHO ARE BEHIND THE SCENES IN THE SPONSORSHIP OF THIS EVENT!
People have a right to listen to whatever type of MUSIC THEY ENJOY. In fact I have listened to Trina and Trick Daddy’s music on the past. I like the beats in spite of the HARD CORE LYRICS. If folks like their music UNCUT AND JUST NASTY TO THE BONES…that’s just fine; however CITY COUNCIL HAS AN OBLIGATION TO MAINTAIN A SENSE OF RESPECT AND DECENCY TO OUR CHILDREN AND COMMUNITY!!! How in the world are we setting up an event like this in the first place? I could see if City Officials invited Jill Scott or George Clinton’s PARLIAMENT FUNKADELIC TO PERFORM! What about BOY’S TO MEN? What about Patti LaBelle or BEYONCÉ and JAY Z?
If these folks want to see and listen to HARD CORE MUSIC…then they should have a PRIVATE VENUE FOR MEN AND WOMEN WHO ENJOY BEING ENTERTAINED BY OLDER PEOPLE WHO LIKE 👍🏽 THE KINKY UNCUT AND UNCENSORED SIDE OF THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY!
In closing I would like to share this; EVERYTHING AIN’T for EVERYBODY!
PEACE ☮️ TO ALL OF YALL AND HAVE A SAFE AND BLESSED SUMMER.
I LOVE YOU!!!! Someone has to STAND TALL & STRONG for the residence. How was I suppose to bring my senior relative that LIVE IN THE CITY to this event??? Family oriented. I pray you continue to stand for the residence when it comes to this type of nonsense. Yes, I listen to all genre’s, but you lose me when you have to curse at me. Not necessary to get your point across.
I feel like a fully informed resident/constituent now
Why is this even a thought when the employees of the city that work tirelessly can’t even get paid on time. When we don’t pay our bills on time we get a penalty, but yet when we don’t get paid on time nothing happens. We need to do better.
I saw this I believe 2 days ago and I’M EXCITED AS FUCK!!!🤪🤪🤪 My first time to see Trina and my first time going to a concert ever!!!😍😍😍 I CANNOT WAIT😩😍 I already saved the date in my phone so I won’t miss this!!!!😍😍😍😍
I know folks flying in from Atlanta and coming down from Philly to witness this spectacle. She just don’t need to be the headliner at a family friendly 4th of July celebration. Take her to the Gold Room, Boots n Bonnets, or Harrahs for the 21 and up crowd.
Come on bro wtf!!!!🙄😒 THIS SOME BULLSHIT!!! Me and Thaddeus have a motherfucking problem!!! NOW IF THEY HAD SOMEBODU ELSE PERFORMING THTMAT SOUNDS “PROFANE” LIKE HER, IT WOULD NO FUCKING PROBLEM!!! MAN I HATE Y’ALL!!!😒😒😒😒
I’m sorry…isn’t this your department? Duane Lee who booked this act works under you….
Don’t be sorry. If Mr Lee booked the act, he didn’t do it under my direction.
