Mary Blige’s interview with Hilary Clinton gathered negative reactions from most social media users, with some calling it as “awkward.”
The interview teaser for the R&B singer’s show “The 411,” which was dropped by Apple Music, is a teaser, talked about police brutality.
The 30-second clip showed Mary J Blige singer Bruce Springsteen’s “American Skin (41 Shots) to Hilary Clinton before the clasp hands.
She can be heard singing the lyrics, ““It ain’t no secret, my friend / You can get killed just for living in your American skin” before telling Hilary Clinton, “I just want to know, where do we go from here?”
“American Skin (41 shots)” is a song about the police shooting death of Guinean immigrant Amadou Diallo in 1999.
Democratic nominee was meanwhile shown pondering over the rapper’s questions, though her answer is yet to be revealed about her take on police brutality.
However, instead of making fans look forward to Mary J Blige’ “The 411” show on Apple Music, Twitter users were quick to notice the teaser’s cringe worthy vibe, The Hollywood Reporter said.
One Twitter user said, “Bruh. Mary J Blige singing to Hillary Clinton about police brutality was THE ABSOLUTE most awkward 30 seconds of my life.”
“I honestly couldn’t make it through the whole video,” another said.
Here are some comments of other Twitter users about the teaser.
