Her singing was great but everyone was talking about her fashion statement.
Camila Cabello joined electronic act Zedd for his American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) “Welcome” benefit concert along with Machine Gun Kelly, Miguel, Skrillex, Mija, and more musicians. The concert was done through a partnership with Zedd and the ACLU to raise funds for the organization that offers legal services to help minorities and other groups who are discriminated against by law or statute.
In case you don’t know, the ACLU was pivotal in blocking President Trump’s first Muslim ban. Celebs even rocked the ACLU blue ribbons at the 2017 Oscars. Cabello’s song of choice was Michael Jackson’s “Man In The Mirror” and her performance of the classic was pretty good. Clearly no one will be able to compare to the King of Pop, but Cabello did her thing on that stage and the crowd was definitely all about it. But it was more than just her performance that had people talking about her time on stage during the ACLU fundraiser. People were just as interested in her fashion choice: a t-shirt that simply said “RESIST.”
Cabello tweeted about the event and her performance using a Michael Jackson quote that was so perfect for the event.

Perhaps her song choice was directed at Trump as a… suggestion?
And people loved her message and song choice when held up next to each other.

This six-letter word has become a rallying cry for protesters and demonstrators who are against Trump’s actions since becoming president.

Who knew that a boxy shirt with no shape could cause such a stir?
