Bad Bunny Pauses European Tour to Join Protests in Puerto Rico
Puerto Rican trap singer Bad Bunny has paused his European tour to go home and join thousands of civilians who are protesting against Governor Ricardo Rosselló, demanding his resignation.
During the past weekend, a nearly 900-page private group chat between Rosselló and several associates in his executive team was published, generating a wave of protests and doubts about decisions by the government. After the news, Bad Bunny reacted, posting a 10-minute video on Instagram. “This is about respect, to all Puerto Ricans," said the singer, adding, “I live in Puerto Rico, my family lives in Puerto Rico, my friends. What happens in Puerto Rico matters to me."
Later he said, “I have the right to speak and every Puerto Rican has the right to go out on the street.”
It is expected that Bad Bunny will arrive on the island Wednesday and will participate in a march that he convened at 5 p.m. ET in San Juan. Fellow artist Residente is expected to join the march.
