A Sixers dancer absolutely CRUSHED the National Anthem, but if you’re wondering why a dancer was singing at the home opener, it might be because Singer Sevyn – SEVYN – was apparently supposed to sing it but was told she couldn’t because she was wearing a “We Matter” shirt. She’s not happy about it:

Tough spot here for the Sixers. Sevyn is an invited guest being given a large stage and that’s probably not the best time to try to make a statement– this wasn’t about her or her message, whatever it may have been. But this won’t play well. When the NFL has openly accepted Black Lives Matter demonstrations, it makes little sense for an NBA team(!) to take a stand against them.
