UPDATE: Springsteen Responds (Kind Of)....
Unfortunately he did so, mainly on Twitter, in a manner which some denounced as resembling actual bullying (You can read all the relevant tweets here).
Reading his tweets, I actually wondered if it was really Steven we were hearing from, or his tough-talking character Silvio from "The Sopranos".
Steven has nothing to prove to anyone about being politically active (see his 1985 all-star, anti-apartheid video "Sun City" above feat Nobel winner Bob Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, Run DMC, Miles Davis, Bono, and many others).
So it's hard to see why he would go to the mat for Pence, especially since people like Springsteen and Van Zandt practically wrote the book when it comes to being a politically-active rocker.
It's one thing to have an opinion. And the best of us are sometimes wrong. But Steven's attacks on people that disagreed with him did seem to cross the line into actual bullying, which is not an accurate way to characterize what Pence experienced at the theater.
Pence is a bully. He was not bullied.
Why is one of ours defending him?
Steven, I think you owe the people you bullied an apology as well as apologizing to your fans for seeming to defend a bully and, by extension, his policies.
It takes a big man to admit they were wrong, but I know you are big enough to do it.
P.S. His bandmate Nils Lofgren respectfully disagreed with Steven.
Will Bruce Springsteen come out against Steven's remarks???
Steven's remarks weirdly echoed Trump on the matter:
Steven made some statements on Twitter. Fans responded, and he answered them, in real time.
I think the language and tone constitute bullying on Steven's part.
You can judge for yourself...
