Logic, Camila Cabello, and Bono all made powerful statements about immigration and diversity.
With the final performance on the Grammys stage Sunday night, Logic had a few things to say about diversity and immigration.
As his performance of “1-800-273-8255,” his Grammy-nominated song on suicide prevention, featuring singers Alessia Cara and Khalid, came to a close, the rapper spoke about a variety of topics including suicide prevention, #MeToo, and Hollywood’s Time’s Up initiative.
“Stand tall and crush all predators under the weight of your heart that is full of the love that they will never take away from you,” he said to the audience.
But the most noteworthy statement came when Logic, speaking about the value of diversity, said, “You are not a shithole,” directly addressing countries that were the reported subjects of President Donald Trump’s controversial remarks about Haiti, El Salvador, and some African countries earlier this month. The comment was censored during the live broadcast.
Standing ovation all the way in the cheap seats to Logic’s reference to “you are not a shithole” during his anti suicide song performance. That song was rehearsed on Friday but not with shithole line. #grammys

“Together, we can build not just a better country but a world that is destined to be united,” he added.
