Former Black Flag frontman Henry Rollins has written a column for LA Weekly since 2010. This week he devotes his disdain for North Carolina governor Pat McCrory for–what else–that anti-LGBT law that everybody is opting out of the state for.
Rollins’ title for this “open letter” to North Carolina is “North Carolina, I Love You, But Your Governor Is An Assh*le.” In this letter, he muses on the effect that Bruce Springsteen canceling his North Carolina tour stop has had on actually getting this law repealed. One of the letter’s best expletive-filled passages is this one:
Springsteen made Gov. McCrory all kinds of famous. I was being charitable using the governor’s name. The truth is that no one cares what his name is. He will be dimly remembered as the assh*le who signed that f*cked-up bill that embarrassed the majority of North Carolinians.
