The Tenors are in hot water on social media after they changed the lyrics to O Canada while holding up an ‘All Lives Matter’ sign at the MLB All-Star Game in San Diego today. ‘United we stand’ was printed on the back of the sign.

Instead of singing “with glowing hearts we see thee rise, the true north strong and free,” singer Remigio Pereira sang “we’re all brothers and sisters, all lives matter to the great.”

Here’s the video:

‘All Lives Matter’ is a statement that sprung in response to the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement, which began as a result of violence against black people in the United States. ‘All Lives Matter’ is a highly controversial statement because it is seen by many as trivializing the problems facing black people.
