Jack White addresses homophobic incident at recent show

Jack White playing in Las Vegas Nevada in September 2018

The incident happened during White's concert at Roger's Place in Edmonton, Alberta.

Jack White has responded after a fan said she was asked to stop kissing her girlfriend at his Edmonton show on November 2.

"The song finished, we put on our coats, and the young woman marched proudly and righteously in front of us to the manager's office, as if we were being taken to the office at school". He said "this is one of my favourite photos because of how lovely the situation is; they are hiding in plain sight".

CTV News obtained a statement from the Oilers Entertainment Group, which operates Rogers Place, that acknowledged MacIvor's complaint and said there would be an investigation.

"We have an absolute zero tolerance for any form of discrimination", said a spokesperson for the Oilers Entertainment Group, noting that the venue is a safe and inclusive space. White also revealed that he encouraged everyone in the audience to kiss their loved ones during the Calgary performance of "Love Interruption". "We unequivocally welcome and support all members of the LGBTQ community", the comment states.

"So today, I'm making a toast to our children, and the next generation".

I'm making a toast, and raising my coffee cup.


In a lengthy Facebook post, which has since gone viral, she explained that she had kissed her friend during a song played in the final encore.

MacIvor toldCBC of the incident: "I embraced my girlfriend, and some staff member came in between us, and she said, 'This is not allowed here'".

"I wish there was a camera to capture the look on my face when she said this". "A fun moment on a attractive night".

Shocked, MacIvor asked if she meant kissing her friend, to which the employee responded, "yes, and if you have a problem with that you can speak to my manager".

The worker told her manager "they were kissing at their seats during the encore, which is inappropriate sexual behaviour", at which point the manager took control and sent the woman on her way.
