“There’s a lot that can be done, it’s got over a century of history that created the problems that they have, and we need to focus on making all of our communities better instead of talking shit about our communities just because you’re a racist prick,” Legend told TMZ.

Get this, last month a federal appeals court upheld a judge ruling that it is illegal and unconstitutional for President Trump to block users on Twitter based on their political views shared on social media. Trump has blocked many celebrities like Rosie O’Donell, Anne Rice, Stephen King, Andy Signore, and many more for this exact reason. According to the Associated Press Trump has unblocked roughly 75 users since the court’s ruling, but 30 or so remain blocked including Chrissy Teigen.
