@seanhannity @michellemalkin @KarlRove Unbelievable twitter trend of hate for BeBe Winans for singing at the RNC #whatashame

Musicians gotta make a living. Performing at a GOP function, however, is apparently the eighth deadly sin of the entertainment industry. Gospel singer BeBe Winans,  a registered Democrat, sang tonight as part of an unpaid gig. He would’ve performed at the DNC, too, but for some unknown reason, they pulled their invitation.

The singer received a tsunami of Twitter spewage for his appearance and misinformed criticism for being a sellout. Talent is supposed to transcend partisanship. Not for the conformity-enforcing Left, unfortunately:

I laughed so hard at someone calling Bebe Winans a 'house negro.' I know, that's so wrong, but it's so funny.

BeBe Winans, a registered Democrat, did NOT get paid for tonight's performance at the RNC.

GOP policy on the poor alone should make bebe winans hang his head in shame … #tampa #rnc

Dear Bebe Winans, tonight you've been singing about America for an audience that doesn't think you should be a part of it. Just so you know!

Um, Bebe is a man, hater:

Er, once again, he wasn’t paid.

Ya'll need to leave my man BeBe Alone w/ stuff like this… #fb pic.twitter.com/b3sgqL3t

The contemptible #negrospotting hashtag appeared, of course:

Correction: Its Bebe Winans and he should be ashamed of himself! #RomneyRyan2012 #NegroSpotting #detroit

— samara bradley (@samarabradley) August 31, 2012

BeBe Winan's choir just blew up the #negrospotting total.

One glimmer of decency:

Ya'll leave BeBe Winans alone. He's making his paper. And more importantly bringing Jesus all up and thru the RNC. Glory be to God.

— Crystal Wilburn (@CrystalMGW) August 31, 2012

Amen!

Correction: In an earlier version of this post, we misspelled BeBe’s name. It’s BeBe not Bebe. Apologies!
