The Philadelphia 76ers aren’t looking for any of the controversy the Sacramento Kings suffered after a singer took a knee while singing the national anthem earlier this month. That’s probably why R&B singer Sevyn Streeter was stopped from performing the national anthem at Wednesday night’s Sixers game against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Sevyn says she was tapped to sing the Star-Spangled Banner last night, but at the very last minute, was cancelled when the Sixers organization spotted her “We Matter” jersey.

“I’m at the 76ers game to sing the national anthem and the organization is telling me I can’t because i’m wearing a “We Matter” jersey,” Sevyn claims in an Instagram video that also shows her wearing the black and white jersey.
