The buzz at a Wisconsin school was that the first-grade class was going to perform Dolly Parton and Miley Cyrus’s song “Rainbowland” at the upcoming concert.


The students were thrilled, practicing diligently for their big moment. But to their dismay, the administration decided to ban the song due to its controversial lyrics.

The catchy tune was axed for promoting LGBTQ acceptance and referring to rainbows, violating the school’s policy on controversial issues.
