Marc Anthony Responds To Racist Tweets: "You Can’t Get More New York Than Me!"

marc anthony responds to racist tweets after mlb all star game

A couple of days ago, Marc Anthony was given the honor of singing God Bless America at the 2013 MLB All-Star Game in New York, and as you probably would expect, he knocked it out of the park!

Unfortunately, we started to hear that people were responding with racist tweets, saying that someone who isn't from the U.S. shouldn't be allowed to sing the song!

We're guessing they didn't get the memo that he was actually born and raised in New York and his parents are of Puerto Rican descent, which happens to be a United States territory!

Well, Marc spoke out about the mix up and had a clear message for all of the haters out there:

"There were some statements made that people were upset that they would have someone from another country sing the national anthem. Let’s get this straight. I was born and raised in New York. You can’t get more New York than me."

You tell them, Marc!

It's pretty shocking to see how easy it is for people to jump to conclusions and react so negatively based solely on the way someone looks or talks!

It's 2013, people! A quick trip to Google or Wikipedia could have saved us all a MAJOR headache!

What do U think about Marc's response??

    Marc's response was very classy. He should have nailed those a-holes who made those comments.

    It says he sang God Bless America, but in his tweet he says it was the National Anthem - which was it? (Not that it really matters - just curious) And good for him - great response.

    After reading all the disgusting comments and tweets, I felt so bad. Being Puerto Rican it actually hurt a little that some people really truly believe that if you are not a white american you are not a true american. I was born and raised in Boston Massachusetts and I am as american as it gets <3

    Our Country is In a really bad, bad place when so many people are so tepid as to judge someone by their appearance. It must stop.

    He sang God Bless America, but some people are referring to it as the National Anthem, which it is not. Even if he weren't American born (which he is), why would anyone complain about him singing a patriotic song? I just don't get that stupidity.

    This world is full of hate and imperfections it's up to people on how they handle it. What mark said was tasteful and classy. I really wish Perez would change his life and not focus on the injustice. But he's always twisting the truth and lives in perversion so he'll never be content.

    Aren't all Americans from somewhere else. Well, except for the American Indians. Maybe they should be the only ones allowed to sing the national anthem. Although they way they are treated I doubt many would want to.

    I invite all those ignorant/racist to check up their family tree, and then to check their lives and finallu I invite you to review their education, if they are at least bilingual, if they know about geography and one more thing: leave the nests that u have lived for all their ignorant life.Yhe only thing that they know is how to criticize, is the same to sing if u r from Canada or Africa, who cares? HE loves USA and Puerto Rico. And is a great singer, artist and actor. #envy #TEAM MARC

    Well, the only native american are the "indians" and the inmigrants who cme from europe killed. So America in its origins is a land of inmigrants!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! there's no real american because the only ones with the right of saying that were killed by european inmigrants. Sometimes is not so bad to read a bit of history !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



  17. 17

    what is sad is that as a latin american is that sometimes your parents home country thinks you are an american and treats you as an outsider and then you have a majority in your home country which is the united states turns its back to you as well.

    Face it, PuertoRicans will never be more than ghetto SPICS to Americans. Besides, he is a CRACKHEAD and it shows.

    Re: TIlubet – Suck it up SPIC!! PuertoRico is a cesspool full of welfare cheats and lazy food stamp spending crackheads. That entire island is supported by US taxpayor dollars because spics are too lazy to work. America should cut them off we don't need Rican land but they would starve to death without governmental handouts. That's why you roaches are afraid to vote for independence, because you don't wan to take care of yourselves. LAZY SPICS GO HOME!!!

    BTW, I would like to listen to some American singer voice with the same strength as MARC, giving musical intonations as HE does. HE is a STAR, not a FAKE 1. What other "singers" do is shout, talk with backgroud music, or mimic on stage, sheme on them, to the most absursd, to NOT SING LIVE at all. no one can compares with MARC ANTHONY's voice, No one. #get a life #racist #envy #ignorance

    The bigots and haters come out in force even when they are incredibly wrong. There should be a national TV and Print campaign featuring Latino, Asian, Mixed race personalities, blacks, as well as whites, all citizens, showing the "Real Face of America" to the public .It's about time these haters got the message.

    Bottom line is he just sounded terrible. It's not that he's a bad singer, it's just that type of song isn't flattering to his singing style. I also thought whoever sang the National Anthem was awful, too. There's no need to add fifty additoinal notes to it and she didn't even bother trying to hit the high note at the end.

    What an embarrassment when people like this insult other like this! when God created man did not give any nationality, every body is created the same way and when people express them selves like that it meas that they are not happy with them selves and open their mouth to somewhat feel better than others since they are know inside they they are loosers. Shame on them. too sad…..

    Go Marc Anthony lots of Americans are ignorant and think hey he ain't white or black that means he not american . Bitch you ain't either are you a Native American then go take a walk because they are the true Americans. Puerto Ricans get discriminated all the time because of our skin tone and we speak Spanish . Trust me you will know a NewYork Rican when you see it because we ain't afraid to curse you out in both language even sign language until you get it .

    Re: state zata – How unfortunate that you are so ignorant. Have you taking a history class in your life? I'm sure your answer is yes, so that means you should know that the original Americans are the Indians who lived on the lands before the where invaded. You are no one to express yourself in that manner. Pick up a book and get some class. God bless you.
