Singer and songwriter Melissa Etheridge and actor John Leguziamo have joined Seth Rogen in boycotting SiriusXM radio after the network announced that Bannon will be joining "Breitbart News Daily" as a host and commentator.
According to CNN, Etheridge -- who is walking away from her own SiriusXM show -- said on Twitter, "After news that @SIRIUSXM has given #SteveBannon a show, I can no longer in good conscience be a part of my show," she tweeted, later adding, "I will fight for anyone's right to free speech. I will not be a part of amplifying or normalizing hate speech."
