The Weeknd thinks Trump should simmer down.

The Weeknd and rapper Belly were all set to perform their track “Might Not” on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, but the pair canceled at last minute to protest Donald Trump‘s appearance on the show.

Belly said Trump runs contrary to his positive message.

Belly, who is Muslim, stated that Trump’s messages go against his “campaign of positivity and love.”

“I create songs people go to sleep and wake up to, songs that they fall in love to,” Belly said. “I just didn’t want to feel like I was a part of a celebration for somebody who has beliefs that the majority of us don’t agree with.”

“To play my part in this business is a privilege and a beautiful thing. The fact that I could lose that ability through the actions of someone such as Donald Trump isn’t right to me. At all,” he concluded.

After the terrorist attacks in Paris last year, Trump demanded a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.” And that’s certainly not the only statement the Republican candidate has made against Muslims.
