The Sixers recently apologize to Sevyn for not letting her on the national anthem because of her “We Matter” shirt.
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.”
Here is an update on that.
Sevyn Streeter and the Philadelphia 76ers have decided on a date for the singer to come back and perform the national anthem after the team didn’t allow her to sing wearing a “We Matter” jersey.
In statements to The Associated Press on Saturday, the Sixers and Streeter said she would perform wearing her “We Matter” jersey at the team’s Dec. 16 home game against the Los Angeles Lakers.
“After thoughtful conversation, the 76ers and Sevyn Streeter have worked together to develop a plan we hope will bring meaningful action in the Philadelphia Community,” the team’s statement read.
