The Weeknd and Belly Cancel Jimmy Kimmel Performance Thanks to Donald Trump

The Weeknd and Belly canceled their Wednesday performance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” because of the episode’s other guest, Donald Trump and were later replaced by singer Gregory Porter. Although Belly and The Weeknd can’t vote because they’re not American citizens, they apparently still wanted to make a political statement. Belly told the associated press that he didn’t want to be seen with trump:

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 … For me, being Muslim and being somebody that appreciates my access here in America, I love the fact that I’m able to be here. The fact that I could lose that ability through the actions of someone such as Donald Trump isn’t right to me. At all.
