This is AMAZING. During a live show in Cleveland that was filled with GOP supporters, Third Eye Blind took the opportunity to remind the audience that they support gay marriage and science. Click inside to WATCH!
Stephen Jenkins, 51, is officially a national treasure. The Third Eye Blind frontman just so happened to notice that there were a lot of republicans and GOP supporters at a charity show the band was playing on Tuesday, July 19 at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, and he couldn’t help but share his opinion on a few things. Like, you know, believing in science, reports The Daily Beast.
In fact, before playing their hit song, “Jumper,” Stephen opened up about his gay cousins. He also told the crowd that if they love the song “Jumper,” that they shared the same values as he and the rest of the band. “To love this song is to take into your heart the message, and to actually — actually — have a feeling to arrive and move forward, and not live your life in fear, and imposing that fear on other people,” Stephen told the touchy crowd before jumping right into the song.
Knowing full well that his audience was filled with GOP supporters as it was also taking place in Cleveland at the time, Stephen continued to remind his crowd that they were supporting a band who supported some very liberal views: like science over religion. “Raise your hand if you believe in science,” Stephen told the crowd, who reportedly responded with loud boos.
Unfortunately for the real diehard fans of 3EB, they reportedly left the stage before performing their timeless classic, “Semi-Charmed Life.” However, the band did not hesitate to respond to a few haters on Twitter after it was misreported they had actually played the RNC itself.
@SHudspath darling, we would never play the rnc. We played a charity event for musicians on call at the Rock and roll hall of fame.
