John Legend is figuratively standing with Colin Kaepernick over the National Anthem. Check out why he says the National Anthem is “weak”.
Kaepernick has chosen not to stand during the National Anthem until there is “significant change” in ending racial oppression.
John Legend tweeted an article about the “Star Spangled Banner” that claims an unsung verse of it “literally celebrates the murder of African-Americans”. He added “My vote is for America the Beautiful. Star spangled banner is a weak song anyway.”
Of course people immediately took offense to his tweet, so he went on the defense tweeting, “For those defending the current anthem, do you really truly love that song? I don’t and I’m very good at singing it. Like, one of the best.”
