The Philadelphia 76ers invited Sevyn Streeter to sing the national anthem at their season opener. Two minutes before she was going to go on, they asked her to remove a shirt she was wearing that said “We Matter“. Sevyn refused and was not allowed to sing the anthem.
Sevyn Streeter later called the show from the airport to discuss what happened at the 76ers game last night. She was told she could not wear a shirt that said “We Matter” before she performed the national anthem and she did not perform.
