Joan Jett will still be performing during Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade — just not on the float representing South Dakota. Vintage Vinyl News reported that Jett, who is an avid PETA supporter, came under fire from the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association with representative Jodie Anderson telling television station KEVN, that the group wanted no part of Jett representing them or their state, saying, “Of course, when we learned that about Miss Jett, we were rightly concerned about her representing South Dakota and a state that is so heavily reliant on agriculture and livestock production to drive our economy.”

Jett fired back, issuing a statement, saying: “I’ve decided to switch from South Dakota to another float because people’s political agendas were getting in the way of what should be a purely entertainment driven event. I will remain focused on entertaining the millions of people watching, who will be celebrating a great American tradition.”
