"The news that two women were stopped from kissing during my show in Edmonton really disappointed me", White wrote on Wednesday (November 7).

Allyson MacIvor said she was approached by a Rogers Place employee and told "This is not allowed here" as White belted out his former band's smash hit "Seven Nation Army".

White shared a photo that he described as depicting a lesbian couple kissing at a Beatles concert in 1964, and added that he dedicated his song "Love Interruption" to the couple at his next show, in Calgary.

White responded with an Instagram message saying: "Two people expressing affection shouldn't have to hide".

An Edmonton-based musician made a decision to go public with a shocking incident that happened to her at a Jack White concert in the Alberta capital last week.

Jack White posted about the incident at his gig on Instagram.

He rounded off the post by urging fans, "Let's promote love and acceptance wherever and whenever we can".

MacIvor said she challenged the member of staff and was taken to the manager's office, who apologised to the two women over the incident.

Importantly for any future negotiations, Harper's deal would not be the largest in baseball history by average annual value. The 26-year-old superstar can field offers from other teams before deciding where he wants to play next season.

In a lengthy Facebook post, which has since gone viral, she explained that she had kissed her friend during a song played in the final encore.

She pulled MacIvor away from her seat, waving her finger disapprovingly, and told MacIvor "that's not allowed here".

The worker told her manager "they were kissing at their seats during the encore, which is inappropriate sexual behaviour", at which point the manager took control and sent the woman on her way.

"We have an absolute zero tolerance for any form of discrimination", said a spokesperson for the Oilers Entertainment Group, noting that the venue is a safe and inclusive space.

Kyle Busch , a seven-time victor this year, and defending Cup champion Martin Truex Jr . are among the other six title contenders. Harvick was on the inside again for the next restart, but Blaney was able to get by him for the lead.

She also asked that the usher and a friend be invited to join her and her guests, but management said it felt "it wasn't appropriate to involve our staff person". "We unequivocally welcome and support all members of the LGBTQ community", the comment states.
