The announcement that police officer Darren Wilson would not be charged in 18-year-old Michael Brown’s shooting death in Ferguson, Missouri, is having repercussions in the music world.

Garth Brooks wrote on his Facebook page he called off his appearances in New York yesterday because he felt promoting his projects seemed “distasteful” while civil unrest is happening. He says he will make them up as the networks allow.

“We landed in NY last night to the news of the civil unrest that was going on in our nation. To spend the day promoting our stuff like nothing was wrong, seemed distasteful to me,” Brooks wrote in a statement posted on his Facebook page. “I will gladly reschedule any or all appearances the networks will allow. Love one another, g.”

Garth appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday (Nov. 25), but that appearance was pre-taped. The country superstar was scheduled to appear on Tuesday’s Live! With Kelly and Michael, on Thursday’s Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and Friday’s Today.

A Live spokesperson confirmed that Garth canceled his appearance on Tuesday’s show and said a new date for his appearance has not yet been set.
