Macklemore Chants ‘F–k Donald Trump’ During Arizona Concert – Celebrity News


Loud and clear! Macklemore led a sold-out crowd in a ‘F–k Donald Trump!’ chant during his show in Phoenix, Arizona, on Saturday, October 14.

The Biggest Celeb Feuds of All Time

The chant came during his performance of the song “FDT (F–k Donald Trump Part 2),” which was released last year by YG featuring both G-Eazy and Macklemore. Vanessa Richards, a concertgoer, told Fox News that the rapper spoke about immigration and acceptance during the concert and he told the crowd: “We should be welcoming and encouraging everyone to live the American Dream.”

Richards added: “You didn’t hear any boos or anything. [It was] one of the louder parts of the show.”

Celebrity Activists!

The concert wasn’t the first time the 34-year-old spoke out against President Donald Trump. Shortly after the November election, he shared a photo of his daughter sleeping. “I am disappointed, shocked and shaken at my core by what has transpired tonight. I gathered around the TV with my family and loved ones, ready to celebrate history being made. My daughter had this little blue dress on,” he wrote at the time. “I was ready to pop the Martinelli’s and hold her, watching Hilary Clinton become the first female president of the United States of America. But…It didn’t happen.”

He continued: “I will teach my daughter to love. All people, regardless of the color of their skin, gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or where their birth certificate says they’re from. I will teach her how important it is to be an advocate for humanity. Not just the portion of humanity that benefits her. I will teach her nonviolent communication. That in the face of hatred we must love each other even harder.”

I am disappointed, shocked and shaken at my core by what has transpired tonight. I gathered around the TV with my family and loved ones, ready to celebrate history being made. My daughter had this little blue dress on. I was ready to pop the Martinelli’s and hold her, watching Hilary Clinton become the first female president of the United States of America. But…It didn’t happen. I had a sick feeling in my gut, riddled with anxiety as the polls started coming in. After hours of a growing pit in my stomach, it was over. I left the TV, grabbed my daughter and took her to bed. But now, as I’m laying next to my her as she sleeps, I remember. Remember what I have control over and what I don’t. I don’t have control over Donald Trump becoming president. That has been decided. But what I do have control over is where I go from here. I will teach my daughter to love. All people, regardless of the color of their skin, gender, religious beliefs, sexual orientation or where their birth certificate says they’re from. I will teach her how important it is to be an advocate for humanity. Not just the portion of humanity that benefits her. I will teach her non violent communication. That in the face of hatred we must love each other even harder. Not give in. Not get discouraged or feel like our progress in the past is void. Keeping fighting for all of us, with an emphasis on those that and have been the most affected by systemic oppression. I will teach her that when she is silent during moments of injustice, she is siding with the oppressor. I will teach her that walls divide people, and by their nature cannot bring us closer. And that just because someone holds the most powerful position in the world, does not make that person right, just or fair. Donald Trump is not raising my daughter. I am. I get to encourage and nurture her to be who she wants to be. Teach her that her voice and actions can change the world. Teach her that she can do anything that a man can do. And one day, even become president of the United States of America. I have work to do. It starts now. And that work is the only thing bringing me peace at the moment

Macklemore isn’t the only rapper to speak out recently. Eminem shared a freestyle video at the BET Hip Hop Awards on Tuesday, October 10, which slammed Trump, 71, and his policies.
