What made him think this was a good idea?!

Unless you haven’t been paying attention at all, you know there has been a ton of violence in our nation over the past couple months, so naturally emotions and tensions are high across the country — which means THINK BEFORE YOU TALK SING!

A Canadian singing group called The Tenors received some backlash on Tuesday at MLB‘s 87th All-Star Game after one of the performers’s decided to wing his part of O Canada to include the saying “all lives matter.” YIKES!

About 30 seconds into Canada’s national anthem, Remigio Pereira decided to change the line from “With glowing hearts we see thee rise. The True North strong and free” to, “We’re all brothers and sisters. All lives matter to the great.”

Maybe Pereira didn’t get the memo about #AllLivesMatter from Michael Jackson‘s son, or Michael B. Jordan‘s comments, or Justin Bieber‘s mom, or Mike Huckabee‘s RIDICULOUS examples. LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out a clip of the anthem to see the ridiculous change as well as the group’s apology (below)!

Thankfully, the group recognized their mistake and actually threw one of their own under the bus, saying Remigio made the change on his own! The singer took to Twitter to share:

OBVIOUSLY we still can’t say we agree with the change, but we’re glad the group was so quick to see their error, even if they had to sacrifice one of their own. LOLz!

What do you think about the change to Canada’s anthem?!
