The Texas State University Strutters announced Wednesday on their Instagram page that they will perform at President-elect Donald Trump’s inaugural parade Jan. 20.
However, thousands of negative reactions took over the comment section and made their way to Twitter.
As reported by KVUE-TV, the Strutters’ account deleted some comments on Instagram and blocked Twitter users who reacted negatively.
One Instagram user said “you guys may keep on deleting the comments, but we are not going to remain silent about this. This is not something to feel proud about. TXST claims to love diversity and you guys go and dance for a person that is the antithesis of that.”
The university has not made any comments regarding the social media frenzy.
The Strutters are excited to announce that they will be a part of the 2017 Inaugural Parade on Friday, January 20th! The Strutters cannot wait for this once in a lifetime performance opportunity coming up in the next few weeks. There are also other performances that the Strutters will participate in during their trip to Washington D.C. and more details on those performances will be shared later on! #TXSTStrutters #TXST #TexasState #AYAYAY
Welp, the Texas State strutters blocked me because I said they support a bigot by performing at Trump's inauguration 😂

If you haven't been blocked by the Texas State Strutters yet you're not actually a woke bobcat.
