After being called out for performing at a maskless Mar-a-Lago New Year's Eve event where Donald Trump was supposed to make an appearance, Terri Nunn of the legendary '80s band Berlin has apologized.
"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," she posted on Facebook. She said that she didn't intend to support any political leaders with the event and apologized for that as well.
She continued, "The contract stated it was a small Covid-safe event for the members of Mar-a-Lago. Unfortunately it was not Covid-safe anywhere in Florida. I had no idea masks and social distancing were not required."
"Once I fulfilled my contractual obligation, I left the event as quickly as I could. It is a mistake I regret. I took a Covid 19 test yesterday and tested negative," she added.
Nunn also took a moment to specifically apologize to her LGBTQ+ fans. "My apologies to those in the LGBTQ community who thought my performance was a statement against them," she said. "I have been and always will be fully supportive."
Trump, who has been a notoriously anti-LGBTQ+ president, ended up not attending the party at his Palm Beach club, but members of his family and other supporters, such as Rudy Giuliani, were present.
Nunn's apology comes in sharp contrast to a statement released by fellow pop legend Taylor Dayne, who also performed at the event.
In a now-deleted tweet, Dayne defended herself to a fan, saying in a typo-filled message, "I'm saddened by all this. I have a 30 yr careers s that many diverse friendships .and I try to stay non political and non judgmental and not preach . I sing from my heart purely and from Source. I wish for all to be who they need to be .. and find their way."
