Karamo Brown is definitely known to speak his mind, whether its with one of his subjects on the Netflix revival of Queer Eye or about the ongoing struggles that the LGBTQ community faces.
He just received a major invitation, something that millions of people would love to attend, but declined it for one very big reason.
He shared on his Instagram stories on Monday that he was personally invited to the White House Correspondent’s Association Dinner, which is taking place this Saturday, April 28th. The association is made up of journalists who cover the White House and our current president, Donald Trump.
Trump is the reason why he claims to not be going, but maybe he should rethink this given it is an event that Trump did not attend in 2017, and does not plan to attend again this year. “The White House has informed us that the president does not plan to participate in this year’s dinner but that he will actively encourage members of the executive branch to attend and join us as we celebrate the First Amendment,” Margaret Talev, president of the White House Correspondents’ Association, said in a statement.
Who will be there though? Well, for one, Kathy Griffin, who was invited as a guest of two major LGBT publications: Washington Blade and Los Angeles Blade. She won’t be performing at all, but it would be good for the LGBT community to have two of its biggest trailblazers there that evening.
Do you think he made the right decision by declining this invitation?
