Last night’s Super Bowl Halftime performance by Jennifer Lopez and Shakira was widely well received on social media. The Colombian Shakira and Puerto Rican American Lopez had a heavy Latin flair in their set which included appearances by J Balvin and Bad Bunny.
While largely complimentary of the show which aired on the Fox Network, the hosts of Fox and Friends had a question. Host Brian Kilmeade wondered if the children singing in cages was meant to be a shot at Donald Trump’s immigration policy.
The Fox and Friends host said, “They have kids that look like they are in cages,” adding
“a lot of people thought is this something going after the (Trump) administration … put kids in cages, and that is what Democrats say about Republicans about their policy.”
The performance also included a section where the New York born Lopez sang Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA.
If you look into Lopez’s past comments on Trump, it’s very likely that the cages were meant to be a shot at the President.
In a 2018 Instagram post, the superstar singer and actress wrote:
“Reading the news about the separation of children from their families, I can’t help but think about my own children. I cannot fathom a world where they would be ripped from my arms, taken to a place no better than a prison far from home. I feel we will never forget this moment in time. Bearing witness to these atrocities and that’s what they are, I can say for sure, remaining silent is not an option.”
