The Weeknd, Belly Cancel ‘Kimmel’ Performance as Donald Trump Appears

written by BCBD Magazine May 26, 2016

R&B singer The Weeknd and rapper Belly have canceled their performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! because Donald Trump was set to appear on the episode.

For the late night ABC show the Oscar nominated musicians were slated to record their performance Wednesday in Los Angeles. Belly didn’t want to share the stage with Trump because he disagrees with Trumps views and beliefs.

”I feel like the way I was raised was to be able to see through all the titles in this world from religion to race” Belly said in a statement. “I just didn’t want to feel like I was a part of a celebration for somebody who has beliefs that majority of us don’t agree with.”

Trump has been criticized by some political rivals and voters for his comments on topics including women, refugees, immigrants and Muslims, such as when he said some Mexican immigrants in the U.S. illegally are “rapists” and when he called for a ban on Muslim immigration into the United States.
