CLEVELAND – The band Good English has been removed from several performances, including one right here in Cleveland.
The Beachland Ballroom confirmed on Twitter that the band will no longer perform on June 18.
Recently, a letter written by Good English drummer Leslie Rasmussen went public.
Rasmussen had written the letter to the judge in her friend Brock Turner’s case. Turner was convicted of raping a woman behind a dumpster in 2015. Rasmussen had grown up with Turner in Dayton, Ohio.
Rasmussen defended Turner’s character, saying he was a good person and his actions were due to alcohol.
Her comments have not gone over well with several music venues, leading to the cancellation of many of Good English’s shows.
The Dayton Music Art and Film Festival released a statement about why they removed Good English from their event.
Other venues like the Rumba Cafe in Columbus and the Northside Festival in New York have also cancelled.
