Terri Nunn of the band Berlin issued an apology on Monday (Jan. 4) after she received backlash for performing at a New Year’s Eve party at Donald J. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida.
In a statement shared to Facebook, the singer explained that she was unaware of the lack of COVID-19 protocols at the event, and that she did not perform in support of the Republican party. "I am truly sorry I performed at Mar-a-Lago and would not have done so if I'd known what I learned while I was there," Nunn wrote. "My goal in performing was not to support a political party. I see now that that's not the way it appeared and I am apologetic for that as well."
Taylor Dayne, Vanilla Ice and the touring edition of the Beach Boys also performed at the party, and Nunn shared her disapproval towards Florida's handling of the pandemic.
