Santa Clara County Magistrate Henry Louis Aaron Persky cited Turner’s cleanse deplorable record and the impact the article of faith wish take on his lifetime. The scandalization has lasted for days.
In the aftermath, a “character statement” Kund Johan Victor Rasmussen wrote in sustain of 20-year-Old Henry Hubert Turner was leaked.

I think she can do whatever she wants, but if you’re going to preach that, you’re not welcome in our venue. The show will go on. It’s going to be a great show.”
