J Balvin is making a stand! He is telling Donald Trump NO!

He has pulled out of performing on Miss USA after hearing Donald’s racist and controversial remarks against Mexican immigrants and Latinos.

Remember, Donald said “The U.S. has become a dumping ground for everybody else’s problems…When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best…They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people. It’s coming from more than Mexico. It’s coming from all over South and Latin America, and it’s coming probably, probably, from the Middle East.”

Balvin told “Billboard”:

“Mexico is a Latin powerhouse. And Mexicans, they’re known as hard workers. Here in the U.S., not everybody wants to do those kinds of jobs. I’ve lived. I know what it feels like and what they go through and how families suffer. A comment like that is powerful.”

So he decided to cancel his appearance. He explains:

“Miss USA was going to be my first performance on national [mainstream] television. But we’re talking about our roots, our culture, our values. This isn’t about being punitive, but about showing leadership through social responsibility. His comments weren’t just about Mexicans, but about all Latins in general. I think music is to have fun. It’s for people to have a good time with. I’m no savior and I’m no Robin Hood. But in this case, I feel totally comfortable and responsible with my decision.”

BRAVO!!!!!
