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?

Music’s most amazing night went down Sunday at the Microsoft Theater in L.A. and we have to say the night was all about the ladies!

That’s right the 45th American Music Awards had some major moments and some major girl power starting with Pink and Kelly Clarkson.

The duo got the show started singing R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts”, but it was their solo performances that had fans going nuts.

Kelly Clarkson returned to the stage and had everyone on their feet with a medley of her classic tracks and new single “Love So Soft.”

While Pink took her career to new heights leaping off the side of a building while performing her hit single “Beautiful Trauma.”

Christina Aguilera, paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a commemorative performance for the 25th anniversary of The Bodyguard.

But the #Majah moment of the night had to be Diana Ross. The Motown legend was given the Lifetime Achievement Award, and performed some of her greatest hits before accepting the honor.
