ACL Fest Apologizes For Pulling Plug on Phoebe Bridgers, Donates to Texas Abortion Funds

Bridgers appreciated the gesture, tweeting “Thank you” on Monday night. The donation came after Bridgers sent a pointed message to Texas’ Republican Gov. Greg Abbott earlier this month with a cover of Bo Burnham’s “That Funny Feeling,” with proceeds going to Texas Abortion Funds.

Bridgers has been performing the song on her fall U.S. tour, and the Bandcamp Friday track will split funds between 10 organizations: Texas Equal Access Fund, The Bridge Collective, Clinic Access Support Network, West Fund, Jane’s Due Process, Fund Texas Choice, Support Your Sistah at the Afiya Center, the Lilith Fund, Frontera Fund, and Whole Woman’s Health Alliance, Inc.

Check out the apology tweet below and fan footage of the sound cut.
