(CNN)Third Eye Blind taunted Republicans Tuesday night in a charity concert at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland during the party’s convention, and a frustrated audience responded with persistent boos.
“@ThirdEyeBlind I have never been more disappointed,” Twitter user Liza White tweeted.
And in a single tweet the band indicated that they didn’t care, tweeting, “good.”
That one little word, “Good” sparked 149 replies, 1.5K Retweets and 7.2K Likes and made Elizabeth White famous. It was entertaining and some of the comments tried to insult the band by calling them has beens and a 90′s Band. Well.. we all know the truth about that with their 20th anniversary of “Self Titled” album and their legion of fans.
The band also responded to a tweet by a fan, and criticized a lack of diversity at the RNC, tweeting, “@SHudspath darling, we would never play the rnc. We played a charity event for musicians on call at the Rock and roll hall of fame.”
Jenkins wrote an op-ed in the Huffington Post in 2012 titled, “Why We Aren’t Playing at the RNC,” announcing that the band declined an offer to perform a private party at the GOP convention in Tampa that year, because, “They are in fact, a party dedicated to exclusion.”
We (the people) want to thank CNN & Liza for this moment, you both made it possible for this to be number five. Question? Wonder if Elizabeth plans on ever attending a concert again?
