Sixers Apologize For not Letting Sevyn Perform National Anthem.


Not too long ago the singer explain the drama at the Sixers game over her shirt on social media and the Breakfast Club.

CBS Philly reported more on the circumstances surrounding the incident, and the Sixers’ response:

Streeter says she was never given a dress code and the Sixers never asked to see her wardrobe beforehand. However, a source says Streeter, like other performers, sign an agreement that prohibit them from making political statements. The source says she refused alternatives given. And there was no issue if she wanted to wear the shirt in the stands as long as it wasn’t while performing.

The Sixers released the following statement on Friday morning:

“We are sorry that this happened. After receiving feedback from our players, basketball operations staff and ownership group, we believe that the wrong decision was made, and Sevyn should have been welcomed to sing. We apologize to her, and in an effort to move the conversation forward, we have reached out to offer her an opportunity to return and perform at a game of her choice. We are waiting to hear back.”
