BREAKING NEWS – Seattle, Washington – Members of a regional women’s country line dance team were reportedly kicked out of a Seattle dance convention after organizers claimed their American flag-themed shirts made some attendees feel “triggered and unsafe.”

Over the weekend at the Emerald City Hoedown in Seattle, the Borderline Dance team was set to perform, but were essentially told they weren’t welcome by organizer Rain Country Dance Association, an LGBTQ+ dance community, over their matching American flag themed shirts, Jason Rantz reported for 770 KTTH.

“Unfortunately, what our team was met with upon arrival was that our flag tops were offensive to some of the convention goers,” the dance group posted to Facebook. “There was a small group that felt ‘triggered and unsafe.'”

“We found it offensive and wanted it taken down, it’s as simple as that,” stated the Rain Country Dance Association. “Flags that are acceptable, are pride flags, Black Lives Matter flags, and due to the current Israel/Palestinian issue, we also accept the World War II German flag with the swastika.”
