In an attempt to bring attention to the importance of voting during this election, Usher decided to create a slogan and slap it on a sweatshirt. Unfortunately, many believe his slogan sent the wrong message.

What Ush was trying to convey: If you don’t vote and try to make a change, then you have chosen to agree with the way things are.

What Ush unintentionally conveyed: If you are silent/drunk/passed out, then you are agreeing to have sex.

YIKES!

Immediately, the singer’s comment section was in shambles as fans pointed out the unfortunate wording on his sweatshirt.

But, Usher is standing by his slogan and has double-downed on his message by posting it on his Instagram twice.

Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like.
