Arizona State University has been forced to cancel an event they booked with Actor Alec Baldwin because of very low interest and ticket sales.
Baldwin was scheduled to make a Nov 15th appearance on the ASU campus, and despite having over 7 months to promote the event, the school was unable to convince students of the value.
Dana Fisher, a University of Arizona history major and president of Honors Players, a theater club on campus, said in an interview with The College Fix that she is not upset about the cancellation.
“I never even knew he was coming,” she said. “I guess he just didn’t offer a unique enough story to inspire students to pay $40. He’s not really our generation.”
Baldwin was billed to delve into his life, “from soap opera heartthrob to big screen star, prolific stage actor, award-winning TV comic, author and columnist, political activist, and advocate for the arts.”
Ticket prices were set at $40 which is steep in this failing #Obama economy, but given the program description who could blame these students for not wanting to waste their time listening to a homophobic bully stroke his own ego while earning more in one evening than most of them will earn at their post graduate minimum wage jobs in a year?
Below is just one incidence from Alec Baldwin’s violent homophobic history.
