The Philadelphia 76ers are apologizing to singer Sevyn Streeter for making what they are calling “the wrong decision” in this week’s controversial demotion.
Sevyn was supposed to sing the National Anthem during Wednesday night’s game in Philly, but the organization told her she couldn’t take half court because of her attire. Sevyn was wearing a jersey that read: “We matter.”
The organization was berated on social media for their decision to cut the pop star, who shared the incident on Instagram. So, on Friday morning, the Sixers took responsibility and apologized in a lengthy statement.
“We are sorry that this happened,” the statement read. “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.”
They added, “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.”
Sevyn has not responded to the apology — but we wonder: Should she go back? If so, should she still wear the “We Matter” jersey?
Jill Scott’s Drunken Disaster NOT The Result Of Divorce Drama … So She Says.
Jill Scott is blaming it on the alcohol … not her divorce.
Jilly from Philly had one drink (or several) too many and decided to document her mood for all to see on social media. By the looks of it, she instantly regretted it.
Scott snatched the video down within hours of posting it, but that was still long enough for fans to reach out to the songstress with cries of concern in her comment section. Jill, who recently filed for divorce from her second husband, Mike Dobson, seemed to be crying in the beginning of the video … then laughing hysterically by the end. And, of course, her tribe of supporters took notice.
Unfortunately, Scott wasn’t here for the sympathy. Instead she clapped back at those insinuating she was drowning her divorce tears in a bottle of Henny. In an IG post captioned, “Real Talk. Good Night,” Jill explained that all y’all need to chill and not everything is about her ex.
So, do you believe her? Jill and Mike were married just 15 months before Scott filed for divorce citing “inappropriate marital conduct.” Dobson then went on a media tour shading the Neo-soul singer calling her controlling and evil.
Look, Jill, if you are hitting the bottle to hide your pain we won’t blame you. Even if it is “out of your mind” we’re sure it’s still stressful and that’s ok. On the other hand, if you were justing getting super lit on a Saturday, then more power to you!
