Famed musician and vegan activist Moby is the latest musician to refuse to perform at the upcoming inauguration ball of president-elect Donald Trump. Moby revealed that a booking agent contacted him asking that he DJ the January 20 event. The musician took to Instagram and posted, “Hahahahaha, I was just asked by a booking agent if I would consider DJing at one of the inaugural balls for #Trump … I guess I’d DJ at an inaugural ball if, as payment, #Trump released his tax returns.” Events that Moby has agreed to DJ recently include a benefit for the victims of the Oakland “Ghost Ship” fire, Los Angeles-based vegan festival Circle V, and a cruise put on by Animal Legal Defense Fund—all of which financially benefited animal- or human-rights causes.
