Chrisette Michele Pens Open Letter Defending Her Decision To Perform At Trump’s Inauguration After Fierce Backlash

Singer Chrisette Michele has been getting a LOT of backlash on social media after it was confirmed that she will be performing at president-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration. The songstress finally decided to respond to her critics by penning an open letter on her Instagram and Twitter pages and ended it with the hashtag #NoPoliticalGenius but…it doesn’t seem to be going over to well with her fans judging by her comment section. Check out her letter below and let us know what YOU think!

Chrisette Michelle:

My heart is broken for our country, for the hopes of our children, for the fights of those who came before us.

I cry at the thought that Black History, American History might be in vain.

This country has had great moments. God has shined His light upon us.

Today, I hope that Great Moments begin in peaceful & progressive conversation. I am willing to be a bridge. I don’t mind “These Stones”, if they allow me to be a voice for the voiceless.

I am here.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Our lives begin to end, the day we become silent about what matters,”.

I am here, representing you, because this is what matters.

#NoPoliticalGenius

 

SMH…we’re not buying what Chrisette is selling over here and quoting Martin Luther King won’t help. You don’t have to be a “political genius” to know that performing for Donald Trump was going to get this reaction. Her camp actually admitted that they kept it a secret as long as they could because they knew this was going to disappoint many of her fans. This meme below explains exactly how we feel. How do YOU feel about Chrisette performing for Trump’s inauguration?
