The Tenors Issue Apology for Their Actions at MLB All-Star Game National Anthem Performance
During The Tenors performance of the Canadian national anthem at the MLB ALL-STAR GAME in San Diego, a member of the four-man group switched out the lyrics of the song to "We're all Brothers and Sisters, all lives matter" while holding up an "All Lives Matter" sign.
Canadians were deeply offended by the gesture, prompting the group to turned to Twitter to issue an apology. The Twitter post follows:
"The Tenors are deeply sorry for the disrespectful and misguided lack of judgment by one member of the group acting as a 'lone wolf' today during the singing of the Canadian national anthem at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game in San Diego. The other members of the group are shocked and embarrassed by the actions of Remigio Pereira, who changed the lyrics of our treasured anthem and used this coveted platform to serve his own political views. Our sincere apologies and regrets go out to everybody who witnessed this shameful act, to our fellow Canadians, to Major League Baseball, to our friends, families, fans and to all those affected. The actions of one member of this group were extremely selfish and he will not be performing with The Tenors until further notice," The Tenors.
