Singer Marc Anthony tells Trump ‘Shut the f**k up’ and help Puerto Rico
Marc Anthony has some scathing words for Donald Trump, pleading with the president to forget about football and focus instead on hurricane-hammered Puerto Rico.
Anthony tweeted on Monday night: “Mr. President shut the f**k up about NFL. Do something about our people in need in #PuertoRico. We are American Citizens too.”
Mr. President shut the fuck up about NFL. Do something about our people in need in #PuertoRico. We are American citizens too.

The 49-year-old singer was born in New York, but his parents are from Puerto Rico, which was hit hard by Hurricane Maria.
Trump did tweet about Puerto Rico later Monday night, but dwelled on the island’s “billions of dollars” of debt to “Wall Street and the banks.”
Tremendous backlash against the NFL and its players for disrespect of our Country.#StandForOurAnthem🇺🇸

Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble..

“Hamilton” star Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted that he’s “texting every famous Puerto Rican singer I know and several I don’t.”
