Ellie Goulding is threatening to cancel her NFL halftime Thanksgiving show over The Salvation Army’s views on the LGBT community. The halftime concert marks the beginning of the Christian charity’s annual Red Kettle Campaign, which helps provide food and shelter for the homeless. Goulding initially supported The Salvation Army, but her followers informed her about some controversial incidents in the charity’s history. As more and more of her 14.4 million Instagram followers challenged her on this, the British songwriter decided to backtrack on her initial support of SA, because she was not aware of its anti-LGBT record before, she would not support a charity which is against LGBT intentionally. “Upon researching this, I have reached out to The Salvation Army and said that I would have no choice but to pull out unless they very quickly make a solid, committed pledge or donation to the LGBTQ community,” wrote Ellie Goulding.
